The subject of the case study is a country risk assessment. Candidates should imagine that they are considering the viability of making a direct investment in projects located in the Rwandan Special Economic Zone. Groups should identify a company currently invested in this zone and analyse the viability of making a direct investment in this company’s project.
Treat the report as if it is a professional report you have been asked to prepare by the board of the company making the FDI decision. You have been asked to prepare a report evaluating the decision that the company made to enter a foreign country. This should look at all the relevant factors both internal and external, and the mode of entry and make a recommendation as to whether the company’s decision to enter that foreign market was a good one or if it might have been better off either not entering that market or by doing something differently (this could be in terms of their structure, strategy, preparedness of nature of entry).
You want your boss/client to read the report (and they are very busy) so the point of the executive summary si to highlight noteworthy points that are going to create interest in reading further (otherwise the report might just end up in the bin unread).
