This research based capstone course allows students to develop business research skills through the analysis of accounting, finance and industry information. This will be achieved through the delivery of a series of topics allowing students ample time to practice their research skills through the preparation of an investment portfolio. This course will require application of attained knowledge in previous accounting and finance courses in order to provide a portfolio fitting for the assumed investor. As such students will be provided with sufficient opportunities to develop appropriate communication skills to ensure the investor is fully aware of all necessary information. The pedagogy adopted for this course is deliberately designed to allow students to develop their own research style through the opportunity to source and synthesise a diverse range of material as part of the development of a business research report.
