Trends of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI)

research your selected topic in the university’s electronic library

from only academic (refereed) journals. You will need at least three

journal references and the textbook. Start your research with the

textbook so it always grounds your topic. When your research is complete

post it in the discussion forum below.

  1. Structure your paper as follows:
    1. Cover page
    2. Overview describing the importance of the research topic to current business and professional practice in your own words.
    3. Purpose of Research should
      reflect the potential benefit of the topic to the current business and
      professional practice and the larger body of research.
    4. Review of the Literature summarized
      in your own words. Note that this should not be a “copy and paste” of
      literature content, nor should this section be substantially filled with
      direct quotes from the article. A literature review is a summary of the
      major points and findings of each of the selected articles (with
      appropriate citations). Direct quotations should be used sparingly.
      Normally, this will be the largest section of your paper (this is not a
      requirement; just a general observation).
    5. Practical Application of
      the literature. Describe how your findings from the relevant research
      literature can shape, inform, and improve current business and
      professional practice related to your chosen topic.
    6. Conclusion in your own words
    7. References formatted according to APA style requirements
