The assignment involves the application of this analytical framework to an existing, publicly-owned company. This final project is designed to facilitate the synthesis of the topics examined in this course into a comprehensive and applied analysis and evaluation of a company.
A detailed outline of the four assignments that comprise this class-long project follows:
Part 1 Accounting Analysis (Week 3):
The instructor will assign a company to each student that is publicly traded on the NASDAQ or NYSE Euronext stock exchange. The company must have significant international operations.Each student must be assigned a different company.
