Tools and Techniques for Business Analysis

  • Answer all five questions. Each question is worth 10% each.

The final exam for this course covers material from all lectures. Please note the following:

  • Answers to questions will vary in length but are likely to be between 200 and 500 words in length.
  • Students should consider the case facts when answering the exam questions. (NB. The case was made available on Blackboard for analysis on 5 November 2020: 0800 (8 am) to allow students to prepare for this exam.)
  • You must answer every question in full and use complete sentences with accurate grammar, spelling, punctuation etc. Sentence fragments or unintelligible writing will be awarded no marks.
  • It is highly advisable that students use diagrams, frameworks, models etc. to demonstrate the analytical processes that were undertaken to support the answers to the questions. All diagrams and the like must be referred to in your answer to be awarded full marks. There is no need to repeat what is obvious in a diagram, but rather you must explain the meaning of the diagram (how it was used, what do the headings mean, provide a few examples, etc.).
  • Students should save this document with the coversheet and the exam questions and submit it with their answers. If diagrams are used, students should embed them into the saved version of this document as part of their exam submission.

Students should keep a record of their answers.
