A 2000 word max on the Cpam model and the recent development that happened to the model. What’s Cpam, its assumptions and critiques and problems. What’s the recent development that happened to the cpam model and comparison of the cpam model with other similar model.
Basic Rules for completing the course work:
Please stick to the rules below when you draft the course work.
The course work should be a maximum of 2,000 words. Make sure you are within the word limit
The coursework should be type-written.
Font Size: MINIMUM 12PT. You can use larger font for headings but not for the document.
Paragraphs should be DOUBLE SPACED!
Use references from published work, i.e. books and more importantly academic journals (especially if you want a 2.1 or 1st class mark). Using only books may give you a passing mark. Using only websites may not even give you the passing mark.
Be careful when you use sources (i.e. journals/books/websites) to refer to them in the document. Best way is through the use of footnotes where you write the name of the first author, the year of publication and the relevant pages you borrowed the saying or paragraph from. You need to do that even if you only used a word from someone’s work. You cannot present other peoples’ work as your own. Doing that, will be plagiarism, which is a serious offence, taken very seriously by the College and may lead to failing the course or even your degree!
There is nothing wrong in using other people’s work as long as you refer to it. The more ideas you use, the better for you (regarding your mark) since it shows you are aware of the main literature/ideas out there! However, make sure that you also write your own thoughts! I know what other people say…what I am interested to read is what you think (and why) about this! So…blend information from other sources with your own work.
The essay part should have the following elements:
a. Introduction: here you briefly explain what the essay is about and how you intend to approach the issue – what follows in the essay.
b. Main concepts behind the problem and discussion: Here you have the opportunity to present the main theory behind the question, the main ideas, or the whole debate. Then you should express your own views, linking them with the other researchers’ and debate views/elements. In this part you can get very creative, but make sure the above are definitely included!
c. Conclusions: here you say what the essay’s purpose was and sum up all your arguments (made in section B above) in order to highlight the fact that you have addressed the main issues concerned with the essay question.
d. References: Here you should list in Ascending alphabetical order ALL the references you have used or referred to in the document. Please see published papers on the style of presenting references (they are always included at the end of journal papers) and stick with a style. I would suggest the style used in the papers published in the Journal of Finance.
