An accounting class is assigned the Harvard Business School case re New Century Financial Corporation.
As we know, this must be purchased from The Harvard Business School cases, and the link is: http://hbr.org/product/new-century-financial-corporation/an/109034-PDF-ENG?Ntt=%2520new%2520century%2520financial. (Some students mistakenly think the library has the case.)
Students are also asked to read the final report by Missal. This 294-page report can be found at http://pdfserver.amlaw.com/ca/newcentury01_0327.pdf.
If students ask what other resources have information about this company’s failure, ABI Inform Global, Business Source Complete, Lexis-Nexis, Factiva, and SSRN can be recommended for news stories as well as coverage in professional and academic publications. It received a great deal of coverage.
If a student needs more assistance, he/she can contact me for a research consultation. However, I think the above information should be enough for the students. They need not contact me directly to learn that the Harvard Business School case needs to be purchased.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
