IB48 Business Project in International Business:
Examination form Home assignment - written product
Individual or group exam Group exam, max. 4 students in the group
The report is written by a team of 4 students. We only make exceptions from this rule if the total number of students is not divisible by four. If the remainder is three students, they are allowed to form a group of only three students. If the remainder is two, we accept two groups of five or two groups of three. If the remainder is only one student, we accept a group of five.Group formation should take into account that complementarities make the team stronger. Four identical consultants do not inspire each other to follow new ideas and combine old ideas and knowledge from your courses as much as four widely different ones. Synergy is the name of the game!
Size of written product Max. 40 pages
Maximum length of the report is 40 pages (10 pages per student) excluding cover page, literature references and appendices.

Course content and structure
Aim of the course
Apply the analytical skills and techniques acquired during the first year of the program on a problem that is relevant to a company, an organization or another outside partner.
The analysis should result in a “consultancy” report addressing a relevant problem for an external partner with emphasis on problem solving and less on theorizing.
Teaching methods
Two introductory lectures
