One
of the abilities that any   graduate of a
business programme must have is to be able to evaluate, fully understand the
current status and financial health of a company in comparison to other firms
within its industry, and to be able to value the company. The graduate should
also have a clear understanding of the international/national economic climate,
how it has changed over the last several years, what expected changes are in
store for the future, and how all of this can impact the value of an industry
and the firms within the industry. Finally, all graduates should be familiar
with those resources that are available to help them understand the relative
position and financial condition of firms in today’s world. To help you develop
this ability, each team will be responsible for performing a financial analysis
and evaluation of a company that is part of BISX and presenting the results of
their analysis in a pitch presentation.  Some of the details of the presentation may include:
