Order Description

International business can be challenging, to actually understand the unique issues firms face requires close study of how a business addresses a particular problem. For this assignment, you will be thinking about and applying the concepts we have discussed in class in a short case study that explains and analyzes how an international business responded to a problem (labor, competitive strategy, marketing, supply chain, etc.). Your case study will address a specific set of questions laid out below.

Step 1: Choose an international business from the list below.
Nike
Samsung
Cisco
Microsoft
DHL

**BP**

Toyota
Ford
General Electric
AIG
ExxonMobil
Siemens
Tesco
Nestle
Boeing
Home Depot

Step 2: Begin researching that business, starting with their company website. Take notes on their history, structure, mission, goals, problems, strategies, and growth. See the sources list below for other possibilities to help you learn more about the company.

Step 3: Write your case study using the information you have collected. Turn it in on Blackboard using the TurnItIn link and then hand in a physical copy in class on April 8th.

Format
Your case study must be divided into the following parts and answer the questions listed below. You should write in complete sentences.

1. Introduction: What is the company and what does it do? What is the company’s history? How did it develop? How is it structured (multi-domestic, truly global, etc.)?

2. Problem: What problem did the business face and what were the primary causes? What additional factors affected the situation? How did the business solve the problem?

3. Implications: What are the potential implications of the issue? In other words, how did (or how will) the problem impact the business? (Example: We saw that Apple had to order an audit of its Foxconn supplier in the wake of media attention. Once Foxconn increased its prices, however, Apple moved to a cheaper supplier.)

4. Analysis: How can the theories and concepts we have learned in class be applied to or explain the situation? (TEXTBOOK USED IN CLASS – International Business. Geringer, 1st ed. ISBN-13: 9781259360510)

5. Conclusions: Review the problem and the business’s handling of it. Is the issue one you believe the business will face again in the future?

6. References: List each of the sources you used to write your case study. These should be in MLA format. For easy help with citations, visit http://www.citationmachine.net.
