    Hey guys, I want to do my extended essay in the business and management area, but I have no idea where to start. The only thing I've heard about the business subject...is to avoid it... :eek:

    So has anyone done their EE on business, or is planning to this year?

    Any info would help, thanks!

    hi!

    well I did mine in Business and Management and I'm really happy with the way it turned out but we will have to see if the external IB people who mark it agree! For me, the reason why I chose to do my EE is Business and Management was because it was the subject which I felt I could write 4000 words on without boring myself to death since I chose a topic which interested me.

    But remember that you need to choose a topic which allows for you to collect primary research as well as secondary research so the company/school/charity etc that you choose to do you EE on, you have to know someone in that company etc so that you will be able to collect this primary research.

    In my school around 7 did their EE in business and management with quite a few opting to do theirs in Psych, History and English.

    Thanks for replying!

    You sound pretty confident about your B&M EE, you have no idea how comforting that is! I'm really interested in the Business and Management stuff too, I don't think I would be able conjure up 4000 words with another area like biology.

    Choosing the topic is my biggest concern right now. I've gone through the B&M EE guide at least twenty times, but I still can't figure out what they want me to investigate. From what I read, it sounded like I need to analyze fairly intense company info, like annual sales and growth rate.

    I was wondering, would perhaps a small, independent store work as the subject of the topic, or does the IBO want a bigger establishment with more concrete financial reports?

    Hey guys, I am also thinking about my EE in B&M topics such as: internet advertising or eye tracking technology in advertisement.
    What are your topics on a B&M EE ?
    And could anyone send me his old EE on email, just that I have a better overview of EE B&M.

    Most of the students find writing a business and management stuffs mainly due to lack of ideas on how to write such papers. If you have to find the basics to write such papers, you have clearly succeeded in your efforts as knowing the pattern is very important in this kind of writings. In my experience too, I'm struggled to write down my business management essays mainly because of the above mentioned fact. But, i went over the issue easily when i get in touch with the professionals in writing field. They helped me with good writing tips to my management essays and that clearly worked for my efforts. Hope you have to find it useful too to make contributions in your works.

    I have heard that it is a bad idea to do it in this area. Although it may be quite an easy subject to complete the EE in, Universities don't like this subject. This means that not only would they not like you to have chosen the subject initially, they would definitely hope you chose not to do your EE in this subject. I understand that it differs from case to case, and some universities wouldn't bat an eyelid over it, but I know that some universities, especially higher establishments, would prefer you to have completed a different subject or a different EE.

    Have you read through the EE guide? Both the general and B&M-specific bits? They offer great guidance.

    Layout should be broadly similar to any extended essay. Look up real research papers and take it from there.

    Key difference between B&M EE and IA is that EE focuses on secondary sources, with primary sources only needed where applicable. IA, at least at HL, is very much primary-source-focused.

    Greetings from Hong Kong (:

    I'm doing my ee in business and management too and I can't seem to able to find an appropriate title. I want to do on based on marketing but every title I've had so far has been turned down as being "too much of economics".

    Can someone give me some ideas? I'm thinking of maybe comparing the marketing strategies of 2 online companies ebay and taobao. Taobao is the china version of ebay... does anyone have any thoughts and ideas to help me please?

    Also, would anyone mind sending me a copy of their EE? Send me a PM for my email please?

    Thank you!

    Hi Guys,

    I'm really keen to do my EE for bus in HR. But if I do that how exactly can I find research for it? I'm thinking it's gonna be a bit hard to find info on it. Do you have any ideas or has anyone done their EE on HR before?
