This case study is about an institution of higher learning that is considering the option of expanding its curriculum to include a new emphasis in its academic program, and which will be offered, alongside other general course requirements, for its Bachelor degree.

Although educational institutions are expected to be non-profit, the administration desires to balance its accounts, and possibly to earn a residual. This is a strategic managerial decision that necessitates the application of principles in corporate finance. It consists of undertaking a feasibility study for the viability of an investment proposal. The case is directed to senior students in business, economics, and eventually other social specialties and fields, or to those with an advanced scholastic status. It is necessary and advisable for applicants to have a background in the mathematics of finance.
