Business and government

This assignment is designed to allow you to develop a deeper understanding of knowledge and frameworks covered in the course. With this assessment, you need to meet the academic requirements expected at the Masters level – research rigour, evidence of extensive reading, systematic analysis and academic writing.

Assignment Topic:

Globalisation has, so far, generated significant economic growth globally and improved human rights while contributing to economic inequality and environmental decay. The government has been in a precarious situation to deliver its responsibilities while grappling with the prioritisation of its activities and maintaining a balance between the interests of the people and those of its corporate citizens.
Drawing evidence from your home country, or a country in which you have worked or studied at, please respond to the following questions:

  • How has the impact of globalisation been on the country of your choice in terms of economic development, industrialisation and export growth?
  • How has the ‘Triple Bottomline’ of sustainable development been affected by the advent of globalisation?
  • How should businesses in your chosen country respond to growing risks and uncertainties in the current global business environment?

Suggested structure of the essay

  • Title page (title of your report, your name, student number and word count)
  • Executive Summary (Maximum 150 words): An executive summary is a concise descript ion of what the report contains. It should include major findings and significance of the essay. A good executive summary should allow the reader to understand the basic content of the report without reading the report.
  • Introduction: A good introduction should clearly outline the purpose and scope of the essay.
  • Body: The body should be split into sub-sections. It could be based on the three
    questions as above. The precise breakdown of subsections is a decision for the
    individual student and will depend on your key arguments.
