The use of space will be at your discretion and is to be written for the Board of Directors of UCW. You may, for example, determine that the best use of space is a café, tutoring classes, or cross-fit franchise, among others. You are to put together a limited business case, and assemble figures (ie., revenues, costs, # of customers, etc) based on your market assessment. You may use the assignments completed in this course as a guide, and bring concepts from your other courses and work experiences into the analysis (eg., SWOT analysis). Particular emphasis on the business case should be on cost-volume-profit analysis and as assessment of the various capital budgeting techniques introduced in this course. Marks will be allocated for originality, depth of analysis and formatting/ presentation of your work. The course rubric will also be a guide for grading. Please include an executive summary, calculations of your work, assumptions made, sources for your estimates (if any), relevant pro-forma income statements and cashflows, and conclusion.
The analysis should be submitted in word form and ideally no more than 10 – 15 pages in length. Please be mindful of plagiarism.
