Each student will be required to submit 2 pages (page restriction will be strictly observed), double-spaced, 12-pt. font typewritten case analysis (TEXT only not including references). If you use references besides your textbook, this can be placed on page 5. If using references (NOT REQUIRED), adhere to APA style. Please note that because of the strict page restriction, most students’ analysis will be focused on thefacts provided in your case text and textbook materials. You are not required to review external sources. But, if you want to, please review peer-reviewed journal articles and books. Refrain from using online sources such as Wikipedia, Investopedia, Business Dictionary, etc. I do not give credit for these sources. I frown upon the use of internet websites as references and rarely give credit for them!!!
To guide you in your case analysis, be sure to read the appropriate chapters and review the discussion questions provided at the end of the case. The discussion questions will often help frame your analysis. Submit your answers to the questions found at the end of each case’s text
Use outside sources, to build your argument. Please refer to peer- reviewed sources and professional sources as you can find to back up your analyses and opinions
Use the discussions questions at the end of the case to help frame/guide your analysis. This case requires the knowledge from the International management concepts. For example, the question# 1 is about the framework of cultural factors. Conduct SWOT analysis to evaluate the culture of the host country for sourcing the necessary ingredients. Question #2 is understanding the global management to assess the market. What might be some of the strategies to manage global markets? The concepts you address, and your explanations need to be supported with relevant concept from the text. 3) discuss how culture impacts local values and the perception of global business ethics
4) How would you handle a situation where you are doing business with a person from this culture in which gift giving is a routine part of traditional business life

Which countries would suggest further research and which countries would pose ethical challenges? How important do you think the Corruption Perceptions Index is to your business objectives? Should it be a factor in determining where you set up operations
6) Discuss and debate whether Hofstede and Hall’s analyses of cultures remain applicable to global business
