UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA Marshall School of Business INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT/FBE 436 Professor Aris Protopapadakis LONG VIEW RISK ASSESSMENT PROJECT INSTRUCTIONS A large part of this course focuses on valuation, and one of the key ingredients of valuation is identifying opportunities and assessing risk.

The report has to start with an “Executive Summary” paragraph that summarized your conclusions. The report should be short, no more than 6 pages, not including any tables or charts you may wish to have. By the stated date in the schedule, each team should submit (by e-mail) THREE topics of its choice, in order of preference. I will let each team know its topic soon after.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
