3 The course is graded on a curve. Due to Wisconsin School of Business grading policy, we expect that the average of final grade is around 3. However, keep in mind that students’ performances may vary from one year to the next and that we retain complete discretion in altering the final grade distribution. The weights placed on the requirements are not negotiable and will not be changed. Thus explicit requests to reapportion the weighting scheme or implicit requests due to retesting or supplementary work will be denied.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
