Assignment 1 Specifications

Purpose:

Assignment Specifications

Students are expected to  demonstrate  their knowledge  and understanding of a chosen research  topic by applying international trade theories and concepts learnt during Week 1 to Week 5. The in-depth analysis of the chosen topic, should be supported by data/statistics, figures, tables and relevant literature.

A group of up to 4 students, will be provided with a set of topics (see below) from which the group must choose on a ‘first-come, first-served basis’. In this assignment, students are required to do better than recycle the  lecture  materials.  Students  are  to  research  the  chosen  topic  in  more  depth  providing  evidence  of independent research.

Assignment Structure should be as the following: Research Paper (worth 25%):

The  research  paper  is  to  be  structured  and  written  as  a  seminar  report.  It,  therefore,  must  begin  with  a Management (or Executive) Summary within which you state in stark form (i.e. unsupported by argument) what you are asserting in this paper and you must do that in less than two pages. You can begin the main body of the paper with some general background followed by a description and discussion of significance of the specific issues considered. This introduction will normally end with a brief paragraph outlining the plan of the rest of the paper. The next section which could be divided into 2-4 sub-sections containing an in-depth discussion  of  the  relevant  issues  based  on  the  existing  literature  and/or  data.  You  must  provide  in-text references to your sources. The last section contains a brief summary followed by a complete list of references that are cited in the text of the paper. Follow a standard referencing method (APA style or Harvard Business) consistently.

The recommended assignment structure for final submission is as follows:

Table of content

Executive Summary (Optional)

Introduction

Body

      The sections depend on the topic chosen by individual or group.

Conclusion

List of References.

Note*:  The structure content is not limited to the items listed above. Creativity for a better report structure is a key requirement.
