This preview shows page 4 - 6 out of 8 pages.

During the written test (closed book), it is permitted to use a normal calculator, not a graphical or programmable one. It is not permitted to use a dictionary. In order to be eligible for the total grade, the written test grade must be equal to or higher than 5.5/10. Recidivists from past years can keep the assignment grades obtained in the past course edition (counting 20%) and retake the written test without attending the course again. Assessment of Group Assignments The group assignment (counting 10% of the course grade) is scheduled as follows: - Assignment 1: Case Baier Building Products, Inc. , submission deadline Sunday, 13 October, 23:59. It is expected that students address and solve the assignments in an autonomous way. The lecturer may be addressed to clarify the interpretation of a question only in case major doubts arise on how to answer a requirement. No direct feedback on the contents of the assignments is therefore provided. In case alternative solutions are considered plausible, make explicit the assumptions underlying the recommendations made. Several situations require a choice among alternatives that might be plausible as ‘correct’ decisions. Students are required to write the assignments in a case Report following these instructions: - use the Word template available under Course information in Canvas. Do not alter the document layout. Fill out group number, student numbers and names on the cover page. - follow the max number of pages indicated in the case questions. In the Report, you have to present calculations that are necessary to address each question. Imagine you have to submit your report to a CFO who has limited time and needs to read an executive summary of your analysis. In case extra space is required, feel free to use a separate Appendix. - be certain that you are responsive to all questions assigned. Always motivate the choice taken in your analysis and base the recommendations by presenting in a synthetic way (a summary of) the solutions of your numerical computations. Make your ideas (and why you hold them) an integral part of the problem/case. Your willingness to ‘take a chance’ with an idea or analysis is a factor in evaluating the recommendations provided.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
