I read in info pack that reference list should be preferably in alphabetic order. I read in this forum some students saying its time consuming to make it in alphabetic order. Cant, we do that with ms office sort option?
Thank you so much for your help.November 8, 2017 at 10:35 am
Unfortunately I am unaware of any quick method of achieving this. Someone has suggested one answer on the Referencing forum topic thread. What might work if it was done from the beginning is to copy each entry into Excel and use sort but could still be a bit time consuming and I would still be inclined to just cut and paste the Word doc.
(I would ask that questions are posted on the relevant thread by everyone -as this one relates to all topics not just Topic 8 this current thread is not the best place for it)March 4, 2018 at 9:31 am
I am having difficulties choosing the companies for comparator. Can you advise me if it would be a good comparison if I compare a company with for example revenue of $100 million with a company of revenue $40 million?

This shouldn’t be a problem if you state this fact in your limitations and any implications affecting the comparisonsMarch 7, 2018 at 10:28 pm
Hi, i need help!! can i choose Kelogg’s Company or Almarai Company for topic 8 for period 36?March 13, 2018 at 1:55 pm
@trephena i am due to appear for the OBU BSc, i am facing a small problem. The company i have chosen under the food products category, is a private entity for which i can get the required data for topic 8. This company only exports.
The problem is that its competitor is a listed entity with operations in local market as well as exports. Now i do not believe them to be on the same level. The listed competitor is huge in every aspect.
Can i use that competitor to compare my chosen private entity with? Furthermore, there are no other competitors in the market that are listed so i cant get their data. The competitor chosen is the only listed entity that has published financials and its export process has a similar business model as the private entity which i will use. Moreover, it does hold a significant marketshare.March 16, 2018 at 9:18 am
This will depend mainly on whether your company’s financial statements are available and in English. If the answer to either of these is no then you will need to choose a different company. You can account for the differences in their size, legal status and markets by referring to these in the limitations. (By the way you say you can get the financials but there will need to be some independent evidence that the company exists i.e. the accounts are publically available AND/OR there is a professional company website).
