1) Assignment 1 - Please Do a presentation on "Doing Business in ...." (Country)

Example or guideline for your presentation (Prezi, Youtube, Adobe or PowerPoint)

A) Tell us about yourself and something unique about you (be creative);

B) tell us about the nation you researched (state, business environment, world fact sheet, place on the map, captital city, language, culture, fun facts or what seems to drive them, anything you find intersting);

C) perhaps look at their political economy (economy, politics and legal - subjects from our class/book);

D) what about their culture (music, language, business etiquette, religion, colors, values or belief, currency, etc...);

E) what does it mean to do business there (what are the top companies [Small and midium] in the nation you are studying; any interesting stories, or real interviews of poeple from that nation, etc..);

F) and for an A+ Extra credit - can you give us some solid advice (important things to take away from your research/presentation) basically what can we learn from your work to help us do business in this other nation or at least give us advice to stay out of serious trouble in this part of the world (cultural, legal, political or other). Useful website Resources - maybe? for your assignment.

Finally, remember that rules are??? you got it... "There are no rules" Be creative, teach us some of value and please have fun with this assignment...

2) Assignment 2 - Essay (Word Document or voice over Power Point, Prezi, Adobe Spark, YouTube, etc...)

As we mentioned in class, regional trading blocks are interesting and important to many nations around the world both economically for prosperity and politically for peace (getting along)!


NAFTA or now the new "USMCA" (US, Mexico and Canada Agreement) is developing (what do you think about the new agreement):

About the USMCA:  Tell us, what is interesting to you, what is new or different in the agreement from decades before, do you think the agreement will help or hurt the USA, will it help or hurt the three nations (what do you think) and then you, as an independent thinking student please compare the USMCA in the business media.  Use views/spin of the USA (media) both the liberals (left) and the conversatives (right)...

Please note many media types out there are spinning the USMCA for their cause, for making money, for an audience, or to push some political agenda (as critical thinking students) look at the USMCA from at least two points of view and then compare.  Finally, choose who you believe or who you tend to side with:  Examples may be as follows: MSNBC, CNBC, CNN, Fox News, Business Insider, Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg Business Week, ABC, NBC, Fox, Facebook, etc...

3) Assignment 3 - Rewrite resubmit USMCA

4) Assignment 4- The Final Paper (optional digital presentation - voice over .ppt, prezi, you tube, abode spark or connect - websites, etc..) emailed to:

Final paper 10 page avg., 12 point font, double space, on international managment topic(s), a country/region of the world & some emphaisis on your potential future career

1) More about yourself... 1) Tell us about your strengths and your perceived weaknesses (i.e. what you love about yourself and what will work on about yourself i.e. I love my ability to…, I will surround myself with people who complement my weaknesses...); you may also preintro with what you are truly passionate about (the type of work you may want to do for a career)...

2) Find a business (Company or Companies)/profession (in what field) /career (the employment title) type of work that you are passionate about (love, think you might love, enjoy, think you might enjoy doing someday) and tell us where in the world that type of business is thriving or in what nation you might do that type of work (region) and how you might get involved (making money, developing relationships, social media, or import/export, anything interesting about your job and the country you will do it at, etc.…)...

3) Because we know that many businesses/multinational/Companies may not train you to become an expatriate abroad; how might you go about training yourself? Tell us about the foreign nation you will practice international business in (culture, language, style, business etiquette, acculturation, assimilation, basically how to behave and act to be successful, etc...) and give us ideas about training ourselves to go there (websites, language software, interview of other that have gone to the country, study abroad programs, etc...)...

4) Please link your work to reality and give some solid takeaways or advice in your paper in business or life (some travel apps, ideas, do's and don'ts, etc...). What are your conclusions about the career and the region of the world that you studied...

Finally, as always "The Rules are"... (You're right) There are no rules... Be creative... lead your own work... (Make it fun, interesting, informative and of course, something you will be proud of...
