Why did I choose this as evidence of my understanding of these topics in the management of a business enterprise?
My accounting and finance classes began an unexpected spark of interest in the world of numbers. Unfortunately only one class really provided an assignment that I could share. The others classes had tests, or more importantly, great discussions that made the material sink into real world events- like the topics of stock and housing markets.
Luckily creating a Master Budget was an interesting assignment that required me to understand several concepts in relation to budgeting- most of which are the corrrect use of mathematical procedures- and how an accurate assesment can help or hurt management decisions.
