Make an assumption regarding the company’s specialization (for example, an electrical car manufacturer looking for building an assembly plant in Mexico, etc.). Choose one you’re comfortable researching. You are welcome to double-check with me.
Review Chapters 8 and 9 of the course text paying particular attention to various theories and managerial aspects of FDI, governmental policies, and regional trade integration agreements. It is a good idea to conduct additional research on foreign direct investment in Mexico. As an example, Bank Santander is a great source.
Consider what you’ve learned and whether you’re in favor of or opposed to investing in Mexico. This will be the position you defend in your paper.
Get familiar with the Position Paper format (HINT: Position papers are sometimes referred to as five-part argumentative essays. You can learn more about the requirements and conventions used in position papers by visiting online writing centers such as BSU, Purdue, CSU).
Prepare a 4–5-page position paper (approximately 1,500 words) in which you present supporting statements for your position, then counterarguments, and finally supporting details to validate or oppose counterarguments. When designing supporting statements, you should focus on FDI theories that you can use to support your position, management issues involved in the FDI decisions, and government policies in both countries.
