Yea I have the same case.. I am from 10ON18 group..I haven't read the case yet but I have started to read the required readings for it..I am planning to have a thorough understanding of the case before our orientation.

Sweet! I read the case, but im finiding it difficult to write in a memo format. 750 words isn't much at all !!

plus, alot of qualitative analysis is required... which is the scary part. Just being able to pick out information from a 5 page case and justify it with accounting calculations (hardcore)

ugh!!!!

Hi,

Has anyone actually looking at the cma website (cma-cpp.com). This is for the fall intake of Yr1 SLP (module 1 assignement 1). I was looking at the case, do you guys have the same case (coast4life Cruises)?

Just wondering if SLP cases (assignments) are the same across canada!

Same in Manitoba.

Does anyone have any idea whether or not assignment #1 for Mod 1 will be discussed in any sort of detail during the orientation session?

I was hoping to have a good start on it as I leave for vacation the day after orientation... but for not having learned anything yet getting smacked with a case is a little overwhelming. I don't even know where to start lol!

Hoping they give a little direction during the orientation session!! Any thoughts??

Not necessarily, although you may ask... many others would like to find out.

Does anybody have any clue if there will be any discussion or direction given during the orientation session on the 1st assignment (Cruise4Life)??

I think readig the required material for the assignments before the orientation will definitely help in asking the right question at the orientation. It is stated on the 2nd page of the assignment file that they will introduce the case wriing approach in the orientation session.

I am not sure where to start with the 1st case either… Maybe we all should share some ideas, while working on the case, I think it will help everyone.

Working on assignment one and honestly dont know where to start. At first it thought it was pretty straight forward assignment based on the step required for business report, that was until i skimmed to the back where the criteria for the assignment was actually going to be based on. We have to figure out ratios, forecasts, profitability etc.. Ive worked on some figures but it just doesnt look right, maybe i dont have enough facts and my assumptions are wrong.

or maybe im just thinking to hard into this and take it easy. And this is just the first assignment.

Anyone else have any luck?

Have you looked into the GR Hotels case (on DVD)? It may be helpful to do that first.

currently working on the Coast4Life assignment....I am a bit intimidated after reading the rubric and what is expected.

I'm not exactly sure what ratios are expected and which ones are even relevant depending on the suggestion!??!

Personally, i would have liked to see a bit more direction considering it's the first assignment

I have done the ratios but how much analysis is required for the 4 options? A study group would be good....does anyone have msn?
I really wish they had discussed the first case more in the orientation!
