Assignment 1 Requirements For your first assignment you need to summarize a recent article. Your article summary should relate to the material covered in your textbook. In the back of your book, there is a glossary of key terms that appear in the text. Your article summary should correspond to key concepts discussed in chapters 1 through 9.
Here is what you need to do for this activity:
* Find an article in one of the resources listed on the syllabus (Wall Street Journal, Business Week, Economist, Financial Times) or other similar periodicals that discusses one of these key terms. It needs to be a recent article (no older than November 2018).
* Summarize the article and list its association to specific chapter material or concepts in your textbook. State the reason(s) for your selection.
* Provide a definition for the specific concept discussed in your selected article. For example, if the article discusses factoring you should include its definition: factoring is the act of selling a company’s receivables at a discount to a factor.
* List some important points or lessons learned from this article.
* Provide a full copy of the article (links are not acceptable).
