Assessment Tasks

Assessment task 2

  • Identify a media article that you will analyse. It should report on
    • a difficult international business situation
    • involving cross-cultural management issues
    • that has arisen in the past twelve months
  • This task will demonstrate your ability to apply your cultural intelligence skills to a problematic ‘real life’ international business situation

Choosing an appropriate article

  • Choose a newspaper or online article between 350 and 1,000 words and less than twelve months old as the basis of your essay
  • It should be reporting actual international business activities or events and not a commentary or academic critique.

  • Ensure it relates to cross-cultural management issues.
  • Avoid editorials or columns.
