Key requirements and task briefing information
• This assignment tasks requires you to:
o Choose one global industry from the six covered in Chapters 8-13 of Global Shift.
o Answer one question of the following three options…
2. For the chosen industry, evaluate the extent to which current global patterns of production, trade, FDI and consumption are influenced by nation-states. You are encouraged to draw on Dicken’s “roles of the state” and other relevant concepts.
I will select “The automobile industry” and topic 2 for this assessment. And please use some relevant theories in this assessment. The PDF is about the automobile industry and please read the PDF first. It must use some cases or examples on this assessment. Thank for very much.
Note that all three assignment questions require you to explore how a key global industry has been affected one or more of the core module topics.
As some of the chapters in Global Shift are relatively broad in scope, it may be advisable to narrow the scope of the industry you are investigating; if you do so, this should be clearly explained in the introduction of your assignment.
• To succeed in this assignment task, you will have to:
o Display a good grasp of the question requirements, clearly direct the material in your answer towards the question and answer all aspects of the question.
o Undertake detailed research and investigation on the chosen industry, using reputable sources, to enable you to identify and analyse the relevant features and patterns.
o Demonstrate a good grasp of relevant concepts from the academic literature and utilise these concepts effectively during your assignment (e.g. to provide analytical insights).
o Present an assignment with a clear and logical of structure that is written coherently and persuasively in good academic English.
o Achieve a high standard of presentation and follow referencing conventions.
You are strongly advised to carefully consult the assessment criteria grid (on page 17) for further guidance on expectations, before commencing work on your assignment!
Use numbered headings and sub-headings throughout to clarify the structure of your assignment and help guide the reader.
Include an introduction that clearly explains your approach to the question and previews the key themes to be covered and explains the structure of your answer.
• Also include a conclusion which briefly summarises your key arguments and conclusions in relation to the key question requirements,
Write in paragraphs and use clear, concise sentences with plain English wherever possible. Leave a line break between each paragraph. Long, overly-complex sentences, containing multiple phrases, should be avoided. Each paragraph should focus on one key theme or argument only. As a rule of thumb, a paragraph should not normally extend beyond 10 lines and/or 4 or 5 sentences. Keep ‘jargon’ to a minimum and define any key academic terms
You are strongly encouraged to use tables and figures with supporting information and other exhibits but these should be presented professionally and referred to in the text of your answer. Figures and tables should be numbered consecutively (e.g. Figure 1, Figure 2, etc), given a meaningful title and the source should be clearly indicated (normally immediately below the exhibit). Consult reputable academic journals such as Journal of International Business Studies or International Business Review to see how it should be done.
