  1. Hi guys, I would like to have some suggestion/feedback on my BM SL IA. My focus is on franchise and my research question is: Should Starbucks cancel its franchise with Maxim’s due to the unfavourable conditions faced by the franchisor in Hong Kong? Currently, I did a SWOT analysis, a liquidity ratio and profitability ratio about Maxim’s. But, the arguments seem doesn't balance, I have too much positive content about Maxim’s (implying that Starbucks should not cancel the franchise). Anyone can tell me what can I write more about (implying that Starbucks should cancel the franchise). Many thanks! Cheers!
  2. Hello, what subject choices would be more acceptable for a business major in a competitive/elite university in the US(Ivy's) or the UK My current subjects: HL: English Literature, Business Management, Biology SL: Math Standard, Language Acquisition B Indonesian, Economics Should I change it to: HL: English Literature, Business Management, Math SL: Environmental Societies and Systems (ESS), Language Acquisition B Indonesian, Economics *my school doesn't offer economics HL, and math HL isn't really mandatory for business, but biology HL isn't either, and both are rigorous subjects. Should I stay in biology even though I don't need it (does it make me more competitive?) or take up Math HL and ESS?
  3. This is my first community post so... Hello to all you beautiful IB lads/ladies. As the title suggests the clock for my business management HL IA is already ticking and, therefore, I should be getting done with my primary resources quite soon. However, there is one problem... Most of you have probably heard about Angry Birds and the company which produced them: Rovio. My research focuses on Rovio's decision about producing the sequel to the relatively well-known "The Angry Birds Movie". While I managed to get the first primary source from Rovio themselves, getting the second one which is supposed to originate from targeted audience turned out to be much harder. You see, these movies (or cartoons) are targeted on a relatively young audience. And getting responses from kids in a kind of country I live in (Finland) can lead to some... Very unfavorable accusations from their parents and people overall. That's why I'm appealing for help on this forum. If you happen to have a younger brother/sister or a friend who could answer this survey please ask them to do so, if it doesn't cause you too much problem. And even if not: please still answer this survey yourself since any piece of primary data matters to me :). Huge thanks in advance to anyone who answers this survey, and double-huge thanks to anyone who gets a younger person to answer it). The survey link: https://goo.gl/forms/gv3I8HQCfxj72tWi2 P.S. This problem lead to a funny story on one of my bm lessons. When I was discussing the primary data gathering with my proactive BM teacher, she basically conducted the survey in front of the entire class and then went on to suggest that I should just go and start surveying kids at the HopLops (Finnish kids' playground area) face-to-face. The class lost it and kept laughing for another 5 minutes. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

  5.

  8. Heyy I'm a BM HL student and currently got assigned to do a concept essay on Amazon's culture. However, my teacher would not give us good exemplars to know how the essay is supposed to be written out...

  9. I am currently doing Psychology HL and I guess I'm struggling quite a bit, not getting the marks I would want to be getting. I assume it's because psychology is a subject that requires a lot of writing and I'm not that good at it. Recently a friend of mine said business & management is an easy subject to get a 7 as long as you try hard. This intrigued me heavily as I am also interested in business as well. I have talked to the business teacher and he said I could easily catch up the things I missed out on since I only missed a term and a bit of content. Which subject should I go with? Everyone around me is telling me to go with what interests me more, but i am interested in both. So I came to the conclusion that the easier subject to get a 7 will be what I will go for. Any helpful suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!:) (HL: Biology, Maths, Business or Psychology SL: Chemistry, English, Japanese ab inito) Oh an p.s. if i continue with psychology I am considering moving down to SL and bumping English up to HL. Any help regarding this would be great as well.

  13. Hi, So after a long search I've finally found a business willing to participate in my IA. However, the business is a very local one and don't have proper documentations eg. business plan nor digital records of past sales and such. They've only just established a computerised system 2 weeks ago. I was wondering if I could still do my IA on them despite the lack of official docs and insight on past trends. Also there are no secondary research that I would be able to collect on them ( which is a section in the research proposal structure i was given by my teacher) as they do not have anything online at all, no website or page. Thanks
