Requirements, Policies and Standards 5.1. Attendance and Participation Attendance is mandatory and roll will be taken. In accordance with departmental policy, any student missing more than 2 classes will be considered to have withdrawn. Students arriving late may be considered to have missed the class. Attendance is clearly necessary, but does not constitute participation. 5.2. Timely Presentation of Materials Due All assignments have due dates. These are the LAST DATES that stated material is due. I maintain the right to downgrade any materials presented after due dates. This is not a subject for discussion. Student should organize their time and work so as to turn in the assignment before the due date. To be absolutely clear, this means that the work will be accepted anytime up to that date but not after. Students should develop a schedule so that the work is built around their personal needs and obligations. Students should allow for contingencies and plan to hand in their work well before the last minute. That way, should some unforeseen problem arise, the timely presentation of work is not in jeopardy. 5.3. Discussion Expectations Please remember that your class participation is essential. You should read the assigned material from the previous week before coming to class and be ready to ask questions or answer your classmate questions. Each student should be prepared to discuss the assigned material in class. Before coming to class, you should submit a one-page case write up for a case of your choice pertaining to the class, i.e. if there are more than one cases to be discussed in class, you are required to write a one-page summary on one of the cases that you choose. If there are no cases to be discussed in class, you are not required to submit a write up on a case. 5.4. Student Preparation Minimal preparation is reading the material, and being able to summarize what it is about, what the major issues are, and some recommendations. [Revised 01.18.2018] P AGE 12
Superior preparation involves being able to (i) summarize the situation or problem presented; (ii) recommend a solution to the discussed problem; (iii) support your recommendation with relevant details, and analyses; and (iv) discuss innovative solutions 5.5. Project Requirements You are to complete the current event research paper on your own. You will be preparing and presenting the historical financial scam as a team. The teams will be assigned by the instructor. 5.6. Grading Policy Grade inflation is not in the best interests of BU students or the reputation of the institution. I have a responsibility to differentiate the performance of my students, and to reward with high grades only those who do exceptionally well. A Grade of ‘A’ or ‘A minus’ will be limited only to those students truly distinguishing themselves in the course.
