It is recommended that you include a one paragraph abstract at the beginning of your report.

A few weeks before you will be ready for final presentation of your master's project (generally, mid-July), set a date and time with your advisor for the presentation, and reserve Room 315S (the Finance Department seminar room) for the presentation with Kay Ross, Director, Graduate Programs. Also ensure that any equipment you need available for the presentation is reserved through her.

Please note that at least three Finance Faculty members must be present at the presentation to comply with UA Graduate College requirements and ensure completion of your degree.

The End-of-Program Evaluation and a Teaching Course Evaluation must also be submitted at the time of your final project presentation. The evaluation and TCE will be distributed by your Ph.D. project advisor and must be completed and submitted to Kay Ross with your project paper.
