SuperGroup / SuperDry Update for Edexcel 4a

Friday, July 06, 2012
Print Tweet This!Save to Favorites

The pre-released case study for Edexcel Unit 4a (Making Business Decisions) is now available and the subject of the evidence is SuperGroup - owner of the SuperDry fashion label and retail empire.

The case study evidence is largely drawn from 2010 up to the summer of 2011 and paints a broadly positive picture of the fast-growing SuperGroup business. However, as keen followers of the business news (and this blog) will be aware, much has happened to SuperGroup recently which has cast a shadow over the performance of the business. SuperGroup shareholders have certainly had to experience a roller-coaster rise recently!

We’ve added a series of news links below which will help students (and their teachers) update their understanding of SuperGroup strategy and performance. We’ll update this list over the coming months as students get to grips with the case study.

I’m delighted that Mark Tottman has once again agreed to provide his superb, comprehensive analysis of the SuperGroup Edexcel Unit 4a case study - and this can now be pre-ordered here. Mark normally completes his analysis by early September - so we’ll aim to ship pre-orders then.
