Learning Outcomes

LO1 Analyze the opportunities and threats for firms exposed to an increasingly globalized environment.

LO2 Illustrate the advantages of trading blocs for firms.

LO3 Determine the importing and exporting process and the practicalities involved LO4 Evaluate ways SMEs can tap into international markets

The House of Dorchester is a premium chocolatier that produces a range of high-quality British-made chocolates, crafted at the company’s factory on the Duchy of Cornwall’s Poundbury estate in Dorset. Proudly British, the artisan chocolate company has been creating award-winning chocolates for 50 years. You are required to:

  1. Assess the opportunities and threats the House of Dorchester faces in an increasingly competitive global environment. You can use PESTLE analysis to identify such opportunities and threats.
  2. Make a case for the organisation expanding its operations in a foreign market of your choice. Your case for the organisation’s foreign expansion should be based on a theory of international trade such as Porter’s diamond, product life-cycle theory, country similarity theory, etc.
  3. Present any tariff and non-tariff barriers the House of Dorchester would have to face when expanding in the foreign market. Discuss the role of trade blocs and point out any trade blocs relevant to the international expansion of the House of Dorchester.
  4. Advise the House of Dorchester to determine whether it is beneficial to import or export merchandise and/or services. Explain the key differences between the merchandise (goods) and services import and export and their advantages and disadvantages.
  5. Compare and contrast the available modes for expansion for the House of Dorchester. These can be exporting, wholly owned subsidiary, joint venture, licensing and franchising. Specify which one you recommend to the House of Dorchester and the reasons why.
  6. Explain the process of the company’s expansion, i.e. if your recommendation is for the House of

Dorchester to export to the foreign market, explain the process of exporting; if on the other hand your recommendation is for the House of Dorchester to expand through a joint venture, franchising or any other mode, you would need to explain the restrictions and requirements of the foreign market.

Academic Integrity (Note to avoid Plagiarism)

Academic integrity is a fundamental expectation for all college/university students and while it is acknowledged that mitigating circumstances might be raised as factors in student behaviour, cheating cannot be disregarded. GBS definition of plagiarism, as contained in GBS Academic Good Practice and Academic Misconduct Policy and Procedure, has been expanded to make explicit that copying from texts or web sources and copying work from other students constitutes plagiarism. Assess the opportunities and threats the House of Dorchester faces in an increasingly competitive global environment. You can use PESTLE analysis to identify such opportunities and threats.

“Plagiarism is the act of taking or copying someone else’s work, including another student’s, and presenting it as if it were your own. Plagiarism is said to occur when ideas, texts, theories, data, created artistic artefacts or other material are presented without acknowledgement so that the person considering this work is given the impression that what they have before them is the student’s own original work when it is not. Plagiarism also occurs where a student’s own work is re-presented without being properly referenced. Plagiarism is a form of cheating and is a disciplinary offence.” Unit 43: Tapping into New and International Markets

Plagiarism is easy to avoid by making sure you reference all of the sources of material that you use in the completion of your work. Pearson has developed Guidelines on Harvard Referencing which are available in Academic Support Area for Students on Moodle (VLE) as well as on respective unit pages.

If you are concerned about referencing techniques, please draw the matter to your Unit Lecturer or Academic Support Team on academicsupport@globalbanking.ac.uk so that you may receive extra advice.

Group coursework may be designed so that the contribution of each student is identifiable but inclusion of plagiarised material is still the responsibility of the whole group. All members of the group should exercise vigilance to ensure that work is properly referenced; in group-work, students have a shared responsibility for the assignment.
