Did anyone else notice a lack of global business questions in the exam? All i found was a multiple choice question or two, a 2-3 mark question and a small part of question 26. It just irritates me because it was my most studied topic.

Anyone else notice this or did i not study it enough to not recognise it?

A small part of 26? The business was proposing a global expansion into Japan.
The marketing, finance aspects needed to be related to that fact.

I would say it played a balanced role in the exam.

in question 26, you had to talk about:

-foreign direct investment as a method of expansion;
-the use of equity to fund expansion; and
-differentiating its product offering in japan

The first part relates to global business, the second part relates to financial planning and management and the third part relates to marketing.

I would say that the 3rd part relates to marketing, but in the global syllabus.

I think it was just marketing, we werent expected to know about the Japanese fish market or anything, so i reckon its just marketing.

We were asked to:

Describe the strategic role of financial management, discuss the three strategies to be comsidered by the committee, and evaluate the strategies in relation to the achievement of the stated marketing and financial objectives.


From the actual question, you can see that deep down, the question seemed to lend itself more to financial planning and management than anything, and global business was just a side factor.

I think last year they had a huge chunk of global business, so they need a slightly different slant on it this year. So this yr it's more on ER, but there's still spinkles of global business in the report, excellent to elaborate on.
