Record of Submission (to be completed by Student)
If there are any exceptional circumstances that may have affected your ability to undertake or submit this assignment, make sure you contact the Advice Centre on your campus prior to your submission deadline.
Fit to sit policy:
The University operates a fit to sit policy whereby you, in submitting or presenting yourself for an assessment, are declaring that you are fit to sit the assessment. You cannot subsequently claim that your performance in this assessment was affected by extenuating factors.
Intellectual Property and Retention of Student Work:
You understand that the University will retain a copy of any assessments submitted electronically for evidence and quality assurance purposes; requests for the removal of assessments will only be considered if the work contains information that is either politically and/or commercially sensitive (as determined by the University) and where requests are made by the relevant module leader or dissertation supervisor.
Details of Submission: The assessment must be submitted electronically via its respective submission link on the VLE site on the due date (end of Week 5) by 11.00 p.m (23:00 hours) VLE (UTC) time at the latest.
Note that all work handed in after the submission date and within 5 working days will be capped at 40%[ Information on exclusions to this rule is available from the Advice Centre at each Campus]. No marks will be awarded if the assessment is submitted after the late submission date unless extenuating circumstances are applied for and accepted (Advice Centre to be consulted).
Introduction: setting the context, addressing the question, the approach to answering the question
Main body of the assignment: in respect of the live case you select, critically analyse: the ethical challenges involved with reference to ethical theory; the related stakeholder expectations and the engagement of stakeholders by the organisation with reference to stakeholder theory. Demonstrate clear relevant theoretical underpinning and make reference
To relevant and reliable academic sources. You should make use of academic referencing using Harvard style
Conclusion: bring together your main points, make sure you have addressed the question and the key points raised in your introduction.
This is an individual assessment, not a group task.
A ‘live’ case is one which is current, i.e. ‘Current’ in this context means a company situation that has arisen since 10.07.2017 (that is, University of South Wales Week 1 in the current academic year).
Literature should be sourced from a range of journal articles and textbooks.
Referencing will be the Harvard system as per University regulations.
The maximum word count for the assessment is 3,000 words, +/- 10%. This word count includes any appendices (which you should not need to any extent) but excludes the words in the reference list. This word count must be adhered to.
The University's late submission policy will be adhered to, so you may submit up to 5 working days after the due date; however, the grade will be capped at 40 (submissions after this time will be awarded zero). If there are circumstances preventing you from submitting your assignment you should contact the FBS Advice Shop and they will advise you of the extenuating circumstances procedure. You may make multiple submissions to Turnitin, but please be aware it takes 24 hours to overwrite the previous submission; you must therefore ensure you leave enough time to submit the final version of your work.
