Using the 8 factors of entrepreneurial profile advocated by Cubico, Bortolani, Favretto and Sartori (2010) and/or the results from your Entrepreneurial Aptitude Test, who would you say you most resemble if you were an entrepreneur? You may use more than one entrepreneur to argue your case.
Your assignment must
• be your own original work (please speak with me if you have any doubts about what this means).
• have all relevant information on the cover (name, student number, module name and number, assignment title, due date, word count).
• be not longer than 3500 words (within 10%).
• have proper references using the Harvard system of referencing.
• be written in formal English – although there are no specific marks allocated for grammar, punctuation and spelling, overall impression is important and can affect marks awarded. Concise and cogent arguments are encouraged.
The assignment will be marked according to the following criteria and considerations:
• the degree of critical evaluation and analysis in the arguments made (descriptive submissions are likely to receive low marks).
• scope of reading and research demonstrated in the answer by appropriate referencing.
• the degree to which your arguments are underpinned by theory and research evidence.
• clarity and structure of the arguments (formal essay format with appropriate introduction and conclusions should be used).
• use of appropriate examples.
• overall presentation, including spelling, grammar and punctuation.
