Corporate Finance Assignment

1. Submitting Preparation Assignments (Days 1-3, 5 and 6)

You are required to turn in preparation assignments for Days 1-6, except for Day 4. Preparation assignments should be approximately one to two pages in length. Study and review all of the exercises even when they do not need to be submitted as a preparation assignment. The deadlines for preparation assignments are as follows: Full-time class-by the class starting time, Part-time class-up to one hour after the class starting time.

Preparation assignments will only be accepted from students who have attended class and uploaded the assignment in the designated way. If students are absent, the assignment will be marked as "Not Submitted." Note that an assignment may not be accepted if it is judged to be incomplete.

How to Complete a Preparation Assignment:

(1) Write your opinions and come to your own conclusion

The most important point in completing assignments is to develop and explain your own opinions which should be thought through thoroughly and lead you to make your own conclusion. Merely summarizing cases, methods or frameworks is not sufficient.

(2) Explain your thoughts clearly and concisely

Take note of the following points to make your assignment more persuasive:

A) Analyze the case and explain the facts that support your conclusion.

B) Use methods and frameworks for analysis and strategy planning.

C) Convey your thoughts logically and clearly.

D) Consider who your audience is and try to make your explanation easy to understand.

2. Submitting a Report (Day 4)

A report is required for Day 4. The deadlines are as follows: Full-time class-by the class starting time, Part-time class-up to one hour after the class starting time.

Note that when attending a substitute class in the same term for Day 4, you are required to submit the report by the specified deadline of whichever class comes first, either the registered class or the substitute class.

Be sure to submit your report on time. Late submissions will not be accepted and your report evaluation will be marked as "Not submitted." In such a case, you will be neither evaluated nor given feedback from the lecturer, and your grade will be marked as "Ineligible for grading."
