However, as you will be working on the same industry as other members in your student group, you may choose toengage in some exchange of research and brainstorming with other students(but this is not a requirement). Although exchange of research and discussionmay take place, as this is an individual assessment, submissions must featureoriginal wording and students must ensure they do not plagiarise each other.Instances of students handing in the same text will be taken very seriously,and referred to AUT Academic Integrity Committee. You have access to the same information that is available to a professional consultant, e.g., market intelligence databases, company reports, mediareports, industry trade publications, etc. You are producing a high-valuereport that will highlight future opportunities and threats that investors willneed to consider. Information based on the past and present is of much lessvalue than well-supported credible data about future trends. A large portion of the marking of this assessment is based on your ability to source and analyse quality data. Analysis drawn from blogs, miscellaneouswebsites, and other analysis will be heavily penalised. You must, therefore,demonstrate your ability to gather information from sources, and decide foryourself what this means for the company – students who demonstrate thisability will score much higher than those who are simply summarising others’analyses or findings.
