The project is team-based. Students will be organised in small groups of no more than five students each. Each group is required to do online research of some selected public listed companies in Hong Kong. Students, expected to work closely together as a team, need to gather the background information and the most recent annual reports of the selected companies. Based on information contained in the annual reports, students are required to develop a critical analysis of the financial health of the selected companies.
Instructions to Students
The project report should be clear, concise and coherent. In writing the report, you should refer to the annual reports of the companies, quoting references from the annual reports with page numbers where appropriate. Using references from other sources without clear quotation violates the academic honesty code and is subject to University policy and regulations (www.cuhk.edu.hk/policy/academichonesty)
The report should be printed on A4 papers. The report should be no more than 12 pages (one side A4 paper, 12 pt Times Roman or equivalent) plus any exhibits and reference, if any. There is no correlation between length of the report and points earned. It is important to answer all questions and please identify the question number in your report.
Deadline of the project is at 5:00 p.m. on December 11, 2011.
