2. If you miss a class, it is your responsibility to determine what you have missed (ask your classmates) including any administrative announcements that may have been made. 3. You are expected to be present at the indicated time and date for the exams. Please let me know if you expect to arrive late, leave early, or miss a class. 4. Please show respect for your fellow classmates by limiting extraneous discussions to outside of the classroom and turning off cell phones and other electronic devices (or muting their ring-tones). General notes: This is a case based class. Case studies are designed to prepare students for real life business situations. Many cases are complex and sometimes you will be frustrated with the lack of information, data, and the lack of your understating of a particular topic. Some cases may not have right or wrong solution and this ambiguity will add more to your frustration. Sometimes you will be frustrated with the behavior of your group-mates. These are all problems that you are likely to encounter in real life situations. But remember, even the best consultants have to do a lot of research and go through a lot of frustration when confronted with unfamiliar situations. Identify the problem first, then decide how the knowledge and analytical tools that you possess can be used to solve the problem. Next design a plan of action and develop a solution. Sometimes you have to choose among many alternative solutions, sometimes you have to make many assumptions. As long as your assumptions and solutions are reasonable and make sense and you can defend your position and persuade others that you are correct then you will be all set! The Early Alert Project: This class participates in Suffolk’s Early Alert Project. Around week 6, I will notify the Center for Learning and Academic Success (CLAS), if you have struggled with writing or language skills, excessive absences, incomplete work, or difficulty with the course content. This warning is not an official grade, yet it indicates concerns about your progress that need to be addressed immediately. If you receive an Early Alert, please visit me during my office hours so we may talk about strategies for how you can be successful in this class. The Center for Learning and Academic Success (CLAS): CLAS offers academic coaching and tutoring in math, writing and English, and many other CAS and SBS courses. Students may join study groups, participate in drop-in services, or make appointments with tutors and academic coaches to reinforce course content, develop writing, and strengthen effective study habits. For a complete review of free services, workshops and online resources go to , call 617.573.8235, email [email protected] or visit CLAS on the 9 th floor of 73 Tremont Street building.
