Edexcel A Level Business Theme 4 - 4.2.4 Reasons for global mergers or joint ven
This lesson introduces learners the difference between mergers and takeovers, we start by looking at the reasons why businesses may want to merge or acquire a firm in another country,
e.g. to gain access to a trade bloc like the ASEAN. We then read a concise case study on the cement industry and how acquisitions have played a big role for these firms, a 10 mark question
with structure guidance given and a model answer for students to peer assess with to build exam technique.
Another concise case study and exam style question, but this time on a merger rather than a takeover, guidance and model points included to again help with important exam skills.
Finally, a research and homework task to conclude.
Colourful, concise and engaging slides!
