There are 3 hours of face-to-face teaching per week consisting of one 1.5 hour lecture and one 1.5 hour tutorial. It is a requirement that students attend weekly tutorials.
The timetable for classes can be found on the University web site at: http://www.timetables.mq.edu.au/
Changes to tutorial times are managed by e-student. It is not necessary to contact members of staff about tutorial changes. On-line enrolment changes to tutorials will be closed at the end of Week 2 so all changes must be made by then.

What is required to complete the unit satisfactorily
Each weekly lecture and the accompanying lecture notes provide a broad outline of the unit material for that week. Students are encouraged to attend lectures or watch iLecture.
Students are required to attempt homework questions in advance of each week’s tutorial. The tutorials are forums for small-group learning, in which material and concepts from the lectures, textbook and readings are discussed.
Students are required to apply theories and techniques to the valuation of a listed company on ASX in the assignment. Students are required to work on the assignment throughout the session in groups, and undertake the valuation process independently. A unique feature of the unit is that much of the delivery (from lectures, textbook, case studies and tutorials) is directed at the assignment, in addition to the final examination.
