Method of Delivery:


The course will depend heavily on cases addressing real-life-situations. Because this is a case-based class, each student is required to be an active participant in case discussions. Your participation grade will reflect my assessment of your total contribution to the learning environment. This includes the frequency of your contributions in class and the quality of the contribution. Quality, includes, among other things: (1) sound, rigorous, and insightful diagnosis (e.g. sharpening of key issues, depth and relevance of analysis); (2) ability to draw on course materials and your own experience productively; (3) ability to advance or sharpen in-class discussion and debate, willingness to take risky or unpopular points of view, use of logic, precision, and evidence in making arguments; (4) professionalism of your conduct (attendance, punctuality, preparedness, and showing respect to all section members and their class contributions). Unexcused absences and lack of preparation will be counted heavily against your grade.

Grading: Grades for assignments, tests, class participation and case studies will be expressed as percentages. Each percentage will be multiplied by their corresponding weights and summed to calculate a final percentage. The final percentage will be mapped to an appropriate grade within a four-point system. The weights of the assessment components of the course will be:

Assignment  1

Assignment 2


Final Exam

Class Participation

Online Activities










To pass the course, the student is expected to obtain at least an overall grade of 50% AND a grade above 50% on the combined grades of the final and the midterm examinations. A student who achieves an overall grade above 50% but a combined exam grade below 50% will be awarded an overall grade of “F”.

Attendance: Attendance is compulsory for all examinations. An absence will be considered only in extreme well recorded cases like illness with a physician’s note.

Cheating: You are expected to learn and obtain information from others and convert them to your own knowledge. However, the work of others you use to construct your knowledge should be properly acknowledged. Any use of the material owned by others without proper authorization, especially copying the answers of a colleague during exams, is considered cheating whose consequence is a punitive action that might result in expulsion.
