6 We may deviate slightly from this schedule and I will keep you updated as the course progresses. I will post the assigned readings and cases before class meetings, and you are expected to read the material before coming to class. The cases are generally quite involved and challenging and you won’t be able to keep up with case discussions if you come to class unprepared. Class Etiquette In order to maintain a class environment that is conducive to learning, I suggest the following code of class etiquette: 1. Arrive at class on time and avoid leaving early. 2. Turn off cellphones and other audible electronics. 3. Do not use laptops other than to facilitate course learning. 4. If you feel that another member of class is distracting you, let me know, and where appropriate, I will anonymously communicate your feedback to them. Keys to Success in this course: x Take organized and detailed notes in class, read your notes and go over the questions again after each class x Work on class exercises and concept questions assigned for each chapter x Start the homework and projects on time. This will give you time to work on the problems, ask questions, and also get the most of bonus points.

    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.
