Identify the mission and vision of the company.

In this module, you will complete an Assignment that is divided across and submitted over the course of 3 weeks. This week, you will complete and submit Part 1 of the Company Profile. You will complete and submit Part 2 of the Profile in Week 2 and will complete and submit Part 3 of the Company Profile, as well as your recommendations to the mutual fund’s managers, in Week 3.
You have been hired by a mutual fund as a management consultant to evaluate a publicly held company that the fund is considering adding to its holdings. Specifically, you will appraise the company’s work environment/organizational culture, financial stability, domestic and international financial growth opportunities, ethical practices, diversity/composition of its board of directors, corporate social responsibility practices, and evidence-based decision-making practices. Based on your evaluation, you will develop an 8- to 10-page report (in total throughout Weeks 1–3) for the managers of the mutual fund that will include your recommendations as to whether this company aligns with the mutual fund’s investment philosophy, which emphasizes companies that are recognized for their practices related to ethics, social responsibility, and global expansion.
In your report, be sure to include relevant citations from the Learning Resources, the Walden Library, and/or other appropriate academic sources to support your work.
