Any complaints for the Break even task? It was not specified whether they wanted the break even point in Euros or Units?
BE = Total fixed cost / contribution per unit
Do you think that‘s alright? My answer was in units then.
Hello everyone! Hope studying is going okay! For those interested: I have reorganised this document (and the missing chapters) into flashcards for open questions! The document is up under the name 'open question exam practice' and can be used on its own or as a supplement to this document. Good luck studying :) xx
Its uploaded! Not sure if you would have liked it to be a Word File so you can fill it in on your laptop, but I use a MacBook and I like to use Pages... Since Pages is not supported by non-apple laptops I uploaded it in PDF-form. You can still fill it in handwritten, but hope its okay for you! :)
Please note that I said ‘to the best of my knowledge’ and do not blindly trust me :)

Hey everyone! I'm planning to study Entrepreneurship and SME Management at Maastricht University. In the weekly program plan it says 8 hrs classes, 14 hrs group work and 18 hrs individual study. What exactly does 'individual study' mean? Thanks for your help! :)
please correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the pre-engagement, initial and advanced phases part of the uppsala model? I'm wondering since in the book they talk about these phases right after defining the uppsala model and never mention what it is part of? :)
I don't have the book with me right now so I cannot look it up for you, however I would say it is not part of the Uppsala model since that model only states that you should take a little step, learn from it, and use the acquired knowledge in your next step. It does not specifically refer to any phases. I think it is more in general that companies follow those three phases, not really related to either model. I just put it below the product life cycle theory because the three phases resemble the steps of the product life cycle theory (pre-engagement = sell in home market - initial = sell abroad - advanced = produce abroad). Hope that clarifies it for you!
^Thanks for your comment!
I actually copied it from the book on p. 121. Apart from that, I personally think that "may be" is correct if I am not mistaken.
However, I have to admit that there are some spelling mistakes and omitted words in my summaries.
I hope they're still useful apart from this issue. :)
I don't know what you have changed since last period, but now, each time I highlight something in your summaries it creates a copy of the document because we are not allowed to change the original. Can you allow changes or unlock your documents? As it is very annoying.
This question is worded wrong, as the scale / measurement in the book is "increasing competitive advantage. All of them have more competitive advantage than "occasional/Incremental" and therefore have to some extend competitive advantage.
The questions should be worded as following: “which of the following is expected to have the least competitive advantage ceteris paribus.”
something that I did not include but might be exam relevant is the % of employment (and perhaps of turnover as well) each of these types contribute to the total. You can find the numbers on p. 13 for this chapter and p. 37 for gazelles in chapter 2.
Zoe Z, im waiting for you. Studydrive page opened, printer tuned on, ink ready to spunk on the paper. Please do not give up on your summaries, we believe in you, we have faith and will always be there to download from you. HAIL Zoe <3
