2016/17 Scholarship Questions
1. A recent report from Amnesty International revealed that child labour is currently taking place in the production of cobalt in Congo, and used in mobile devices by global companies such as Apple and Samsung. How can international companies tackle child labour in their international supply chain, especially when it involves raw materials from developing countries?
2. 2015 saw an increasing amount of international businesses placing greater emphasis on strategic customer relationships. Discuss how these relationships are created and maintained through the use of modern day marketing techniques.
3. You have probably seen this at an international airport: HSBC’s poster that shows a grasshopper with different messages “USA—Pest. China—Pet. Northern Thailand—Appetizer.” Discuss the increasing importance of cultural intelligence in the face of new global challenges and cultural adaptation issues for managers and organisations. Comment on the opportunities and challenges to develop the competencies of cultural intelligence in an organisation.
4. Following the 2014 FIFA World Cup Finals, Brazil will once again be the focus of the sporting world in 2016 in hosting the Summer Olympic Games. Discuss how such mega events are used by international destinations as a catalyst for change. Do these events offer high levels of return on investment to their stakeholders?
5. Encouraging an enterprising spirit is at the root of many of the EBS London modules and programmes, including international business and events management. Many of our graduates start their own businesses and have become successful entrepreneurs. Your task is to produce a business proposal for any new venture, indicating clearly how the new business venture will be funded and how it will attract customers.
