Extensions:

Requests for extension must be made BEFORE the due date. Extensions may only be granted for serious circumstances, such as illness, and extensions will not extend beyond the date at which marked work is returned to students (usually within a week of submission).

Note that pressure of work is not considered an exceptional circumstance, as all our students must manage these.


Penalty for Late Submission of Assignments:

Projects must be submitted by the due date and time given by your instructor. Failure to do so will result in a deduction of 10% of your final grade for each day over the deadline.

It is the student’s responsibility to keep appropriate copies/backups of the project submitted.


The final project is a major piece of work that runs throughout the course. If you ever felt you had an international business idea (or dream) in you, this is your chance to pursue it! Even if it is unlikely that you will actively carry it through in real life, here is the opportunity to test your theories, and see if your learning can translate into a real overseas venture.

A business plan or strategic plan is a careful analysis of both the external and internal environments. The success depends on accurate forecasting of the external environment and a realistic appraisal of internal company strengths and weaknesses.

Students will be formed into groups of 4 (maximum) each. This group is responsible for putting together an international business plan for a UAE-based company.

The business plan will cover all aspects of a real business plan for doing business offshore. The business that you choose may be a new venture or an existing one. If you choose to establish a new venture, you must offer local product/s only and if you choose to select an existing company, it must be a local company. The completed business plan must be very professional in style and presentation.
