Use one and half spacing with 12- point font and pages must be numbered. UseNew Times Roman.Table of contents and numberingA comprehensive table of contents is required, with section numbers, section headings, and pagenumbers. It will include the List of references, a List of appendices, a List of figures, and a Listof tables, all with page numbers indicated. All sections and pages should be fully numbered.Finance for Managers- FIN6013– GSB SEGi University |6IntroductionAn Introduction should be provided at the beginning to summarize the structure of the followingsections of the report/assignment. The introduction does not contain theory, nor does it containany conclusions or recommendations.Body of assignmentThis is an academic assignment, so it is essential that your statements be justified by relevantacademic theory. For example, don’t just use terms like ‘stakeholder’– explain why you selectedthose terms, and the academic theory to justify their use. A major failing of students is to simply‘describe’ the processes that have happened. At postgraduate level, you are expected to be ableto apply recognized theory to situations, and form opinions. You will often find conflictingopinions from so-called ‘experts’. You should be developing analytical and communicationskills. Students coming from other universities, and especially overseas students, find this needfor ‘analysis’ the most difficult transition to make to Australian university study. You areexpected to use your judgment to analyze problems, make value judgments as to whether it isgood or bad (or both), use existing academic theory from a range of sources to justify yourposition, and to argue whether something is valid or not. In the study of management, there is noright or wrong answers, only lots of opinions, many of which change over a period of time.Show that you can act as managers, and communicate your opinions. Major sections should starton a new page. You will be surprised just how much more readable it makes your assignment /report.ReferencingReferencing is NOT just inserting a list of publications at the end of the report and this is notacceptable. Referencing is NOT just inserting a citation at the end of each paragraph and is notacceptable.At postgraduate level, you are expected to cite at least 10 to 15 different sources of referencematerial, and to make multiple references to such material. References MUST be cited usingHarvard system (which is author/date). Please do not use footnotes, etc. Read yourCommunication skills handbook for information on how to cite reference materials. Referencesmust be listed alphabetically by author in a single List of References at the end of eachassignment. Do not put multiple lists of references at the end of each section or part.Figures and tablesThere are many instances where diagrams and tables would assist in the communication ofinformation, and the reduction of word length. For example, if a stakeholder analysis wererequired, it would be much more clearly understood if presented in a table. Figures and tablesmust be numbered in some logical way, so they can be listed on the Contents page, and referredto in the text. A recommendation is that you call it Figure/Table X.1, X.2 etc. where ‘X’represents the section number. Consecutive numbering through the whole document (rather thanby section) can mean lots of renumbering if there are changes. Tables should not run over ontofollowing pages. Start them on a new page to avoid this. If they are multi-page tables, then thinkabout making them into an appendix. Use a smaller font (10 point) and single line spacing toreduce the size of tables.Finance for Managers- FIN6013– GSB SEGi University |7AppendicesLarger amounts of relevant material (such as sample documents or supporting material) shouldbe put at the end of the assignment in an Appendix after the List of References. Smaller charts orsummaries could be located in the text, but anything over a page becomes a distraction.Appendices should be numbered sequentially (Appendix 1, Appendix 2, etc). Unnecessary andirrelevant information should not be attached. Size of assignments has no bearing on marksachieved.
