2. In this DB assignment I want you to think about Unit VII and the importance of understanding the cost of capital to a business.
Comment on why understanding this is important, explain why as debt increases (in capital structure), eventually the WACC will increase (despite the fact debt is usually the lower cost component cost of capital). How does your current or past company, or one you know of, decide on its cost of capital? Finally, What assignments/assessments from this course aligned with your profession? How can the lessons you have learned positively affect your career success (now or in the future)?
