The purpose of this project is to enable students to demonstrate their knowledge of important international business concepts and apply research, analytical, and communication skills. Students will demonstrate their ability to choose relevant sources, summarize key information, provide a critical analysis, and use proper citation in their portfolio consisting of topics concerning one or more of the international business issues presented in the textbook.

Students will be expected to show development of research and critical thinking skills by completing an analysis of articles related to course content. Each portfolio must include 5 essays based on articles related to topics in international business, with no more than 2 articles relating to any one chapter in the textbook. Each essay of the portfolio should include a short summary of the article, a position statement and a short analysis demonstrating how the article relates to specific issues in international business.
For the portfolio, a minimum of 2 different sources must be used. Any print, audio, or audiovisual source will be accepted. Students must describe articles that are not print-based in detail – for example, if you include an interview, you must describe the circumstances under which the interview took place. Include a copy of each article (preferably an internet link vs entire article when possible). NOTE: Reviews that only summarize an article and do not provide any critical analysis will be given a mark of 0.

1. Choose an article related to international business
2. Read the article
3. Consider how the article is related to current topics in Int’l Business
4. Summarize the article (approx 250 words)
5. Create a thesis/position/direction for the analysis based on Step 3.
6. Write the essay
7. Repeat steps 1 – 6 for 5 different articles

The first paragraph of each essay should be a brief summary of the article. The last sentence of this introductory summary should introduce/state the approach you are taking in the analysis.
The primary result of an analysis should be to inform readers fully about differences or about options and their drawbacks so that they can make an informed decision. A critical analysis should be clear and concise; it should reveal the writer’s thinking about the items undergoing analysis; it should demonstrate that the writer has provided supporting evidence for each position or option. For example, if you agree with the premise of the article, you will want to write your views giving reasons for your support, and, if possible, include data (facts/figures) from outside sources. Each critical review should be approximately 2 pages, double spaced.

Note – each article/analysis is a stand-alone essay. The full assignment consists of 5 article analyses.
