Write a column for a business magazine
You will be a freelance column writer for a business magazine. Write a column with less than 500 words to (1) comment on the past performance of the selected firm (Procter and Gamble) and (2) provide readers insights into the future of this firm.
It is important for you to demonstrate that you are able to skillfully combine the information from Stage 1 & 2 to form your opinions. You are advised to avoid using unnecessary accounting jargons when writing this column for general readers without strong financial analytics training. The firm I chose is Procter and Gamble.
You will collect other information from a variety of sources:
