    Paper Structure

    The paper is based on case analysis and is intended to increase your understanding of finance principles studied in FINC 206 and FINC 202. For the most part, cases are based on a situation that an actual firm has faced in the past, and your task is to analyse the situation and recommend a value-creating course of action that could be taken by the managers of the firm under consideration. Assigned tasks consist of both group and individual work and provide the opportunity to improve your written and oral communications skills.
