Your task is to identify and select a contemporary management issue from current affairs. In particular, you should find a news item on the BBC News Website (news.bbc.co.uk) from the last six months. Examples could be business ethics, globalisation, social or industrial conflict, outsourcing, regulation and/or deregulation of business or indeed any substantive issue that impacts on managerial decision making. You should then develop and write an essay on your chosen issue (sanctioned by your tutor) using the concepts, themes and issues explored in the course. You are required to have developed your idea by week 5 and have it signed off by your tutor at the seminar (see the pro forma in the
BUSI1475 Contemporary Issues in Management 2015-16
appendix of this document and on Moodle). You must supply this form as an appendix to your submitted assignment. Please note also that there is a space on the pro forma for the full URL of the story you have chosen which you must also supply.
A successfully completed assignment will be consistent with the following guidelines:
• Be appropriately structured, written, presented and referenced (using the Harvard style)
• Feature an appropriate contemporary management issue with sufficient currency, substance and relevance to this course and its learning outcomes (properly justified) to merit analysis and debate
• Feature and make substantial reference to a range of theories and concepts
• Engage in a critical debate which evinces deep insight into an contextual awareness of the topic in hand
• Word limit: 2000
Please be aware that the University operates a very strict policy on plagiarism and any student who breaches academic regulations will be subject to the strongest disciplinary sanction.
