I am needing assistance. I am practicing a dissertation process and want to be clear about my knowledge of each component of the process. I am trying to create an overview of a proposal for a finance dissertation based upon using statistical tools for financial research and risk assessment / portfolio theory. At a minimum, the overview should include an introductory paragraph and a discussion of the following elements, which will appear as headings:
Background - This section needs to address only the background of the organization used for analysis; however, additional suitable material may be added.
Significance of the study to leadership
Nature of the study
Summary - This is a summary of the key points made in the overview.
