ASSIGNMENT:
Purpose The assignment is intended to provide the participant with the opportunity to
demonstrate understanding and integration of the various aspects of the programme
and this module. The aim should be to obtain, analyse and interpret financial data (in
the light of theoretical research where possible), and to assess non-financial objectives
and to integrate them into a balanced decision making framework.
Task Prepare an investigatory business report using financial information from the
participant’s work experience or simulation with a view to making suggestions for
future direction and improvement.
The report should include, among other things:
1. Introduction – brief organisational background, the participant’s role, objectives,
methodology, etc.
2. Numerical investigation.
3. Use of communications and information technologies.
4. Findings – analysis and interpretation of results.
5. Problems, obstacles or failures to meet organisational objectives (if applicable),
qualitative assessment.
6. Solutions, conclusions and/or recommendations.
7. Reflection and critique of your learning process during the module and the
assignment.
8. One -page summary – containing the key features and figures of the report. This
page must be placed at the beginning of the report, on coloured paper to make
it stand out.
You can choose to supply a preliminary one-page proposal to the tutor for approval,
giving a clear title, theme, objectives and methodology of the study.
Style The report should be coherent, complete, clear and concise (maximum 3,000 words
excluding reflection, tables, graphs and appendices) making good use of headings,
tables, graphs, diagrams, etc. and presented in suitable typed format using appropriate
IT methods with balanced use of appendices, contents listings, proper referencing,
bibliography, word count, etc. The introductory section should be brief and the
material in the appendices limited to essential information only. The report should be
predominately analytical rather than descriptive.
Timing Please referred to UWE assessment Regulations regarding submission of assignments.
The submission date 15/01/2015.

MF Assignment Advice
1. Assessment Criteria
? Style – clear, concise, direct, well-explained, easy to read, good use of English
? Presentation – professionally produced, sub-headed, clear sections
? Structure – logically ordered, well summarised
? Figurework – accurate, useful graphics, tables, numerical illustration, techniques used
? Completeness –all relevant information and requirements included
? Analysis – insight, vision, logical argumentation, originality, independent learning
? Research – application of theory, citation and referencing
2. General
? Please state which group you are in on emails
? Avoid potential assessment offences – see:
http://iskillzone.uwe.ac.uk/RenderPages/RenderRoom.aspx?Context=10&Area=8&Room=24
3. Report writing –basics
? Number pages and sections clearly
? Third person preferred
? Better to give alternative options names rather than numbers or letters
? Tables – supplementary statistics may enhance – e.g. totals, %
? Numbers – show units, commas for thousands, whole numbers (not pence), bracket negatives, Avoid decimals
where needed maximum two decimal places
? Graphs – title, label axes, units, source
? Use headings, subheadings and direct, concise style
? Completeness – contents/executive summary/reflection/word count/ bibliography/references
? Word count – 3,000 is the maximum. If necessary prune from front, not back
4. Extra attention
? Introduction – title/theme/role/objectives/method
? Report should be read from beginning to end without having to break off to refer to appendices (so extracts
may be necessary in the body of the report)
? Bring out numerical bottom line and blend quantitative results with qualitative argument
? Problems and obstacles provide interesting insight, but are not always present
? Evidence of use of communications and information technologies required
? Conclusions should summarise main findings then go on to suggest interpretation and significance of results
? Recommendations need to be fully explained and should follow logically from foregoing argument (they do
not emerge afresh)
? There needn’t be too much theoretical content with such a practical task, but
research and/or originality will be given credit
? Application, analysis and interpretation earn the most marks
? Distinction will be awarded for exceptional work demonstrating research above and beyond the lecture
material
5. Executive summary
? Written last, not first but presented at the start of the report
? One (full) page only, summarising whole report
? Include key bottom line figures and other points of detail, concisely summarised
? Coloured paper, placed at beginning
6. Reflection
? One page only – often adds value to report
? Perhaps half on module, half on assignment – include expectations, challenges, difficulties and achievements

Summary
To test Students’ ability to
present the information in a
“to the point”, concise and
clear manners in a business
style.
? One page only
? Must encompass important data and
discussion point

Data analysis /
numerical
investigation
To test students’ ability to
manipulate data and numbers
to extract information useful
for decision making by
applying the techniques
learned in the module.
? A must element to pass
? Detailed calculations are required either
within the body of the report or in
appendix. For example, if you use ratios
you must calculate the ratios by yourself
which is evident by the report
? Show workings/ calculations
? For Financial Analysis of a company by
applying ratios analysis and z-score, one
company is sufficient. However a good
student would refer to industry’s and
competitors’ data recurrently.
? For Business plans, investment
appraisals and budgeting related reports
it is recommended that this part is
mostly within the report rather than in
appendix.
