General Learning Goals:
These general learning goals are among those established by the Dillard College of Business Administration. General learning goals represent the skills that graduates will carry with them into their careers. While assessing student performance in obtaining these general learning goals, the Dillard College is assessing its programs. The assessments will assist us as we improve our curriculum and curriculum delivery.
Course Specific Learning Goals: After completing this course, students should be able to:
Grading and Evaluation: Student's performance will be assessed using the following elements.
Points will be allocated using the following scheme.
Grades will be assigned using the following scheme.
Attendance & Participation
WebCT access to Course Content, My Grades, Assignment, Announcement, etc. I will use WebCT as the major communication channel for the class.
Assignments:Assignments are due in class at the beginning of class on the specified due date. There is NO PROVISION for late work on any assignment. Plan and schedule to complete work early. Having your work completed on schedule is a key to early success in your business career.
Missed Examination, Quiz, and In-class Exercises Policy: Only students with authorized absences (see University Class Attendance Policy) may make up missed examinations, quizzes (announced and unannounced), and in-class exercises. Arrangements must be made in advance if at all possible. In all cases, the instructor must be contacted no later than the day of the scheduled exam or no make up will be allowed. At the instructor’s discretion, a deduction may be assessed for a late exam.
Attendance Policy: Regular attendance is expected and roll will be taken. Upon a student’s fifth unauthorized absence, that student will be dropped for nonattendance and receive a grade of WF for the course. Participation in class discussion is mandatory and a significant part of the overall class grade. Students must read the assigned material and complete assignments and be prepared to discuss and ask questions relating to assigned material. See the MSU Student Handbook for University Class Attendance Policy.
