  1. Which subject according to the overall experience is better? Both of business SL and ess fit my other choice of subjects (engineering is my track btw) I just need to hear other people's opinions about each. When it comes to the IAs, content, etc. so that I'll be aware of all of the aspects before finalizing any decision. YOUR REPLY WOULD BE APPRECIATED!
  2. Hi guys, I need some help. I had to switch from Physics to Business for my extended essay and I didn't have time to read the whole Guide before deciding on a subject. I settled on the question of To what extent is Football Boot (soccer cleat) Marketing Ethical? My teacher thought it would be good and I have found many sources and written a lot so far. However, I'm starting to become unsettled by some of the descriptions in the Business section of the 2018 Extended essay guide. They state that: 1) "The EE title must be stated in the form of a question that promotes the application of the higher order skills of analysis, evaluation and synthesis, rather than encouraging a descriptive essay." I feel I am analysing, however at times it's hard to use business devices to do so... 2) "Students should remember that a business management essay must be written in an objective style without personal bias. Conclusions should be derived from the evidence and not based on any preconceptions of the student." I am using different examples of unethical marketing being sanctions to argue that football boot marketing should be punished, however, at the end of the day, it's a personal opinion or bias as to whether or not it's ethical or not... My teacher is a very experienced IB Business Teacher, so I trust her and her judgment, but I do wanna be extra careful as this is a very important part of the IB. All help appreciated. Many thanks!!
  3. I NEED HELP AND VERY GOOD IDEAS Every year, the DP students are encouraged to participate in business week, which is a week where we sell products. Before this year, students were able to sell food but this year they have changed the rules a bit. Now we have to sell actual products that we have ti make ourselves and before we sell, we have to pitch to the investors (legitimately) and try and get investment (debt). The product that will be invested on must last one week, and it has to be only one product, through out 5 days. Down side Our school has a diminutive amount of students The market is small and restricted (only teachers and students) We cant sell food Up side Pitching prepares us for the future Real life experience of business Ideas Our group came up with the idea of car wash but i think that the market is very limited if we do the car wash. Selling bracelets with tags which you can buy, write a note and we can deliver it to e.g. crush/ best friend/ fr-enemy If you have any ideas, please help me!!! The pitching is this week Thursday....
  4. So I would really like it if I finished my extended essay over the summer or at least finish a big chunk of it. I came to the conclusion that I want to write my extended essay about cyber security of something similar to that. I've done some research and I think I want my essay to be about how cyber attacks have affected millions of people and businesses and stuff such as the past cyber attacks on Google, VISA, Mastercard and so on. I'm not quite sure what my question should be though. The essay will probably be using the IB subjects CS/Business or CS alone. I would really appreciate you guys helping me! Thanks! Update: Thanks for the reply Nomenclature I actually didn't realise that my EE can't be interdisciplinary so I appreciate you letting me know. After reading more about my topic I have come to choose this as my question: " To What Extent Can Hackers Exploit The Weakness of SSL Encryption To Slide By Standard Perimeter Defences? I'm still not sure...what do you guys think? Feedback much appreciated.
  5. Hi all, I'm currently in my first year of IB and I'm hoping to go to the US for university (mainly ivy leagues). I know that US weights a lot on extracurriculars but unfortunately I don't do much besides studying..:( In college, I would like to study in the business fields, so are there any extracurriculars recommended for this? (it would be great if it counts as CAS as well!) Thanks a lot!!!
  6. Hi, Does anyone know if you can do the business IA on investigating wherever a company that closed down should reopen its branch but in a different location? I will investigate wherever it is beneficial to restart this business in a different country and look at different factors like costs, taxes, market etc. Would this be a good IA idea? Thanks!
  7. subject

    Hello, I have finished Grade 10 and will embark upon my IBDP journey starting this August. Quite a few people seemed to be concerned with the difficulty of my course selection. I have chosen the subjects below: Mathematics HL Physics HL English Language and Literature (A2) HL Chemistry SL Business and Management SL Chinese B SL I want to pursue Computer Science in university, hence is why I think Math HL is a must, and I also think that Physics HL would be useful. I am very fluent in Chinese and B SL would not be a problem. What concerns me is Math HL and Physics HL; I enjoy Math and Physics a lot, but I am not necessarily 'good' at Physics. Could anyone give advice on my choices? Help would be appreciated
  8. Could anyone give good examples/ideas on which business to choose for Paper 2 Section C? Thanks!

  12. The first draft of my EE is due in 4 days and I have come to a complete stand-still. My RQ is: To what extent and how has the increased awareness of climate change among consumers had an impact on the strategies of the aviation industry? I have a general plan with what I want to find out and how I intend my essay to be. However, I'm finding it difficult to apply specific business tools to it. I was thinking about comparing stakeholder maps from 1995 and 2016 but I am really struggling to find information about stakeholders and especially in the 1990s. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  13. Hi, I'm writing my IA for Business & Management SL (yeah, I know - late) My topic is about relocation of airline headquarters. I've done SWOT analysis and I'm not sure what to do next, in order to analyze it, especially in terms of calculations. What would you recommend? Will current ratios be good? What's more? Help, I'm really desperate and I don't have much time
  14. 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... So is it possible if any of you are willing to show or found an example that can benefit future BM essay? Thanks a lot!
  15. Guys what happens if you miss out on single citation of a figure(Graph from the internet) in your extended essay and it has been submitted.
  16. My question is: What external factors influence the strategic choices in terms of marketing of Starbucks- Do you think it's narrow enough?- How can I make it more narrow?- Do you think it's appropriate for EE? Thanks in advance
  17. Hello everyone, I have this biased business and management teacher that only gives good marks to internals whose owners are her favorite (her favorites are the students that don't take private lessons). This is quite problematic because its easy to figure out the ones that do take private lessons than the ones who don't. So problem is my internal is with her and I'm pretty sure it won't get the mark it deserves (Ex. this one kid once got a 3 from her, but chosen as a sample so got raised to a 7). She always tries to justify herself by saying she's the "ol' mean examiner" that is only "harsh to make students work on themselves more", which is why she got out of trouble w/the school, so telling anyone responsible isn't gonna help. I heard once that in a similar situation, one can send an email to the ib explaining briefly what's going on. That if the IB got an email, they'd request ALL of her internals, not just a couple of samples. Last year they took all of her internals, so question is does sending an email work? and if it does work how do i send one? (Address, what do I include, etc..) Thank you in advance !!
  18. Can anyone please help me with this For my Extended Essay, I plan to do research on the business/economic aspect of football. As football is becoming more of a business in the modern day, and many decisions are business motivated it is what i plan to research. However, the issue is that along with checking in with my supervisor we realized that the Business Management EE is more an analysis of an organization making a decision or activities of the firm and that business tools would need to be used. Also, we could not find how we would apply this topic to the Economics IB syllabus. Examples of what I would wish to study are analyzing China’s recent activity in the football market and their 50 point development plan for football in China or the expansion of the world cup to 48 teams. There is nothing specific under this topic I wish to do my EE in and any thing that I can find suitable to do my EE related to this topic will be great.

  21. Hey there I need to confirm what Group 3 subject I'm choosing ASAP. Currently, I'm doing: English Lang & Lit HL Spanish Lit HL Mathematics HL Computer Science HL Physics SL I plan on studying engineering. When it comes to my Group 3 subject, I'm stuck between B&M, which seems useful in promoting entrepreneurship in the future, but Pre-IB classes have proved to be extremely boring to me, and ITGS, which seems interesting, fun and a solid, easy subject, to make my already pretty hard IB a little more survivable. So, which of them is harder? Can Business prove itself actually helpful for young entrepreneurs? What other option would you recommend? My school also offers: ESS Economics Geography History Philosophy Thanks!
  22. So I have been struggling very much with my Business Internal Assessment, it's been absolute hell. I didn't hand in the first draft so I never got it marked and I've missed the internal deadline for the final and I haven't even completed it. I never thought it would be so hard, after all I also did an extended essay on business too. I've been pulling all nighters for almost a week now and I just can't get it right so I'm thinking of just handing it terrible like that. How much would a bad IA affect my results? I'm a predicted 6 but with how my IA is going... Im afraid I wont be able to get my IB Diploma. If I were to score a 3 on my IA for example and a 7 on the exams, what result would my final be? a rough idea? I am in need of a bit of consolation. This task have given me so much anxiety, I've lost my appetite and the will to do anything.
  23. Guys, I am in a hurry. I was doing my application for IE University in Segovia to take a dual bachelor of Law and Business Administration, when I "stumbled" in the admission tests. They require either the IE Admission test or other as SAT, LNAT, CAS or ACT. The Cambridge Assessment Test (CAS) includes those Language tests like the First (FCE), the Advanced and the Proficiency, right? Because I have done my First (FCE) Exam and if it does count, then I must use it as I haven't done any of these. Could anyone who knows or has been confronted with these admission tests explain help me? If I am not able to upload my FCE result, then can you explain to me how can I do one of the other exams and am I still on time? Really I need fast answers! Thanks in advance, Richard
  24. Hello! I'm studying Business and Management HL right now and it seems pretty hard to me, even though I do ALL the homework, read ALL the assigned pages! I am so afraid right now that I won't be able to pass the exam, cuz I couldn't memorize the therminology and all the aspects of this subject. I'm thinking of switching to History HL, but I'm not sure if it will make my life easier. And I'm studying on IB diploma 1 for 4 months already. So I would need to catch up a lot if I switch. Has anyone experienced it? Any advices? Which subject is easier to pass at the end?
  25. Hey guys, I am on my 2nd year and its about time to send my application to universities with the degree chosen. I am kinda hesitant, because I am facing a conflict of passion vs money. I mean kinda because the options I am considering for "money" I also enjoy them. So within the "passion" group there is studying Literature and Creative Writing. Since I was 14 years old that I like writing poetry, short stories and forth. I can consider myself a creative and eccentric person and I like writing any kind of text whatsoever, it seems that I perceive writing and the importance of grammar and clauses and all of that as art. I know this sounds kinda weird, but I feel like I look at it some other way; everybody has their passion and the thing that interests them the most and it seems we look at it in a more abstract way, or that we grasp it easier. All of my teachers are impelling me to pursue Literature, but there are two factors that are making me "rethink". 1- it does not grant much career options. I mean it is basically writing in freelance, which I would honestly love to, but I guess I have grown and realized I need to have a stable life and we do not live in an oneiric world where artists and mathematicians and philosophers are always happy and if they strive to get projects and jobs their work will be noticed and valued. I have been becoming skeptic about this and I don't want to spend my whole life like my frustrated Literature teacher... (oh and being a teacher for me is not an option, I would hate it). 2- I would be studying into the UK because in my country Literature really means unemployment... but going to the Uk and learning eng lit, which is more less universal and might give me a better chance of getting a future, also implies studying another language and lit which will obviously be harder for me than for other native students. On the other hand, there is the option of Business or Law. UK universities even have ambivalent degrees which include both Business and Law, which would be an explosive mix ahah. I don't really like business and finance stuff, but I like Economics in theory cause its a social science and has very important implications for us. I have Math Studies, thou I informed myself and the UK and a few good univ. in Spain allow for Math Studies, with a min. mark of 6. Law I guess I would also love to take. Before writing, I really wanted to be a lawyer as I have always had the concern that there would be no exogenous factors like lobby, culture, background — interfering in a person from "telling his story". I guess I do have argumentative and research skills, but more than that, my imagination would really help me out. I know this doesn't sound right but arguing is virtually creating scenarios and realities which we are prompt to defend or get arguments in favor. If I want to defend something, I really get a way of proving it and I guess in court those rhetoric techniques would work. So, Law is a mix between passion and money, but my real passion is writing and imagining and not taking a Law degree. I am currently with 33/34 points. Could you give me some advice? I was planning on having decided by this week "more less" at least because we can only apply to 5 univs. in the UK and so if I did know what degree I would like to take I would be applying to more univs of that degree... I am sorry for the extension, but this is very hard to sum up. Thanks, Richard
