Assignment

End of Semester Project

The final project represents a culmination of what you have learned in this class. It is worth 100 possible points. Your project will be about a publicly traded company that you admire. It does not have to be currently operating. You must gain approval from the instructor for your choice.

Your final project will be a paper about that company. The paper should be a minimum of five (5) and pages and no more than seven (7) pages in length, typed, and double spaced. One of the pages should be a cover page, which states the title of your project, your name, and the time and day that the class meets. You may insert pictures, clip art, graphics, or charts into your paper, but only if they further illustrate what you’re writing about.  The final page will be the list of references that you have cited for the research conducted while writing the paper.

Here are the sections you will need to cover in your paper, in the following order:

  1. What is the name and mission statement of the company?
  2. Write a brief history of the company highlights up through the present day? (Summarize major events and tell how those major events affected the company. A timeline may be a great way to show major events).
  3. Write about at least 1 example that shows what you consider to be a good ethical decision this company has made in the past or is in the process of making/considering today. Make sure to tell why they made this decision (What prompted them to make it? What do they hope to achieve by making it? Etc). Also, make sure to tell why you consider this a good ethical decision.
  4. Write about at least 1 example that shows what you consider to be a poor ethical decision this company made in the past or is in the process of making/considering today. Make sure to tell why they made this decision (What prompted them to make it? What do they hope to achieve by making it? Etc). Also, make sure to tell why you consider this a poor ethical decision.
  5. Include at least one of the following financial statements: Income Statement, Balance Sheet, Cashflow Statement (or budget). Make sure these statements are no older than 5 years.
  6. Write a summary paragraph for your paper to wrap it up at the end. The summary will offer an opinion as to whether YOU would invest in this company…and why or why not.
  7. Provide a bibliography in APA format listing all the references you used (websites included) in this paper.
