LOVE) Country Research Project Country India Industry Mobile Telephone

Students will have the opportunity to learn more about evaluating a potential investment of a particular project in a designated country. Each project requires a country evaluation as well as an industry evaluation. The country evaluation will focus on the economic, cultural, political, and financial risks of the country. The industry evaluation will focus on market potential, entry strategy, organizational structure, business operations (global production, outsourcing, and logistics), marketing and management focus.

The final recommendation regarding the project potential will be done through the development of a written research paper. The final research paper should be a minimum of 6 to a maximum of 10 double-spaced pages (Times New Roman 12-pt font with one-inch margins) not including the title page, list of works cited, and appendices. This paper is intended to be an academic challenge. I am not looking for general encyclopedic research but a polished academic product. Each student must cite at least 4 different sources to support his or her opinion of which at least two sources must be from a book or scholarly journal. Use of the course textbook is acceptable as a source. Students must use proper in-text citations using APA or MLA format. Students will have received approval from the instructor on the country and industry they have chosen to research.
