In order to gain a good grade for this assignment at this level you are expected to pay attention to the following:
Structure and clarity of expression
At this level, assignments should show a clear and logical organisation of the material, and are expected to focus clearly on the task set. Structure and language are expected to be used effectively in order to communicate your ideas clearly to the audience.

Content and understanding
You are expected to make use of skills and knowledge developed in this module and in particular through your wider reading in addressing the task set. You will need to apply relevant analytical frameworks both to inform your analysis and to structure your work. Frameworks of relevance will include those relating to the international marketing programme, market entry strategies, and standardisation / adaptation.
Evidence of analysis and evaluation is fundamental to success at this level. The critical application of relevant analytical frameworks is required – purely descriptive work is likely to fail.
Reading/Research and Referencing
At this level it is expected that a substantial amount of wider reading (mainly academic journal articles, but also appropriate textbooks and industry/professional sources) will be carried out to inform your work.
Application to industry
This work requires the application of relevant theoretical concepts to international marketing decisions. Therefore although the report does not focus on a specific brand, it remains necessary to demonstrate an appreciation of the practical relevance of theory. Descriptive and / or generalised work is inappropriate.
