The proposal topic must be previously approved by the instructor before going ahead on the research. Students will explore the topic in reference to assigned countries. The Term Paper will be developed through a process of drafts that build on provided analysis and feedback.

TOPICS: Exporting, Importing, Outsourcing, Off-Shoring, Licensing, Franchising, Foreign Direct Investment FDI, Strategic Alliances, Joint Ventures, Greenfield Investments, Wholly Owned Subsidiaries, Acquisitions.
All good papers, presentations, or arguments have the following format: introduction that builds to a supposed thesis, reasons why the thesis is true, and a conclusion restating the thesis.
In your paper, underline the thesis and put the main arguments in italics. Do keep in mind that in your paper as opposed to this example you do NOT say, “I think” or use any other personal pronoun (I or me)! The reader knows it is your opinion.
