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: email@example.com
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,
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...
