The second group is topped by IE Business School, which scored 60 points more than Nanyang Business School, leader of the third group. The fourth group, which includes schools ranked from 84th to 100th, is headed by McGill University: Desautels. Footnotes 1.

Granger Paper Co. Case

...Acc 327 Case No. 2 Spring 2012 It is January 20, 2012, and you are the senior auditor in charge of auditing the 2011 year-end financial statements for Granger Paper Company (GPC). GPC is a profitable company that has been in business for many years. It is primarily a manufacturing company that buys wood from timber growers and converts the wood into a variety of paper products. It is a publicly traded company with a reputation as a good corporate citizen. Although GPC has been audited many times in the past by external CPA firms, this is the first year your firm has conducted the audit. GPC’s total revenue for 2011 is $80 million. In examining the revenue for the year, you notice that $3 million of the revenue does not come from GPC’s primary operations (i.e., revenue from sales of paper goods). This $3 million in revenue is labeled as timber revenue in GPC’s books. This strikes you as odd because, generally, GPC buys timber. That is, timber is part of the cost of goods sold for GPC and, as such, is an expense. You ask GPC’s controller, Pat Smith, why GPC is recognizing timber revenue? Pat informs you that GPC began diversifying its operations a few years ago. A natural extension of its business seemed to be growing and selling timber. So, five years ago, GPC bought 10,000 acres of land in Alabama and Mississippi for purposes of growing timber. The land was purchased from a previous timber grower that had recently harvested its timber. Immediately after......

There are various methods researchers use to perform case studies and each method serves its own purpose. There are advantages and disadvantages of conducting a case study, and various ways to collect the data needed. What is a Case Study A case study is an in-depth analysis of someone’s complete life history where the researcher seeks causes and patterns for behavior. Case studies can be both qualitative and quantitative, depending on the method used to gather information. A case study could also be done on a group, community, or an event. The goal of a case study is to find how one’s case can be a generalization for others, to find common ground per se, and to advance research previously conducted. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to generalize these subjective studies to a large population of people. (Case study as a research method, 1997) Case studies can be both qualitative and quantitative, depending on the method used to gather information. The most known case studies came from Sigmund Freud. He conducted detailed investigations into the lives of his patients, attempting to provide insight to their illnesses and help them overcome the challenges their illnesses brought....

Case Study - International Paper

...Case Study – International Paper Company I. Company Profile and Analyses of Industry International Paper Company (IP) is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of paper and paper products. Their products include a wide variety of paper products, consumer packaging materials, industrial packaging materials, and pulp products. In addition, IP collects and recycles recovered paper. History IP began in 1898 as a merger of 17 pulp and paper mills from Massachusetts to New York. IP led the newsprint industry until 1913, when trade regulations revised to promote Canadian imports and later, in 1921, labor conflicts within IP contributed to a decline in IP’s market share. However, IP rallied by creating a Canadian subsidiary, expanding into the South by acquiring and building new mills, consolidating its northern operations, and diversifying its product line from primarily newsprint, to book and bond products, and later, corrugated containers. This diversification aided IP in surviving the Great Depression, and continued through the 1930’s. IP continued to reap profits and expand the company through the 50’s and 60’s, into North American and overseas, eventually expanding into places such as French West Indies, Mexico, and France. The 1970’s found IP divesting itself of several plants and mills, and in 1976, J. Stanford Smith, facilitated a major company reorganization revised the geographic area divisions into business units dedicated to a specific function or product. Over......

About 145 New York providers which includes the hospitals, physicians, group practices and individual practice have paid back an estimating amount of $19.9 million dollars back to the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit. Some health care leaders have brought up an important message regarding mistake with billing should be considered a fraud or not.

5 Forces Analysis

...5 Forces Analysis on the Paper Industry Looking at the position of the paper industry relative to the five forces model I had to determine exactly what constituted the paper industry. I had to decide between the Paper Mills Industry and Pulp Mills Industry and ultimately decided to analyze the Paper Mills Industry specifically when it came to paper industry as a whole. The NAICS Code that corresponds to the Paper Mills Industry is NAICS: 322121 or SIC Code 2621. Porter’s Five Forces Model of Competition includes the firm’s, or in this case the paper mill industry’s, position relative to current competitors, suppliers, customers, potential new entrants and potential substitutes. Over the next few pages I will conduct a five forces analysis of the Paper Mills Industry. Current Competitors: The degree of rivalry in the paper industry is the center of the five forces and the other four forces branch off of this. The first aspect to look at is the number and position of companies within the paper industry. There were 445 companies in 2009 and as of 2013 there are now 119 companies in the industry. This industry still has many competitors within the industry and therefor, there shouldn’t be any impact of any particular company. This industry is large enough where these firms can prosper without having to steal market share from each other and this is a positive for the paper industry. The second key factor is the industry growth rate and if there is room to increase......
