petition for an early final exam (ideally before accepting the internship offer). The Booth Registrar's Office will work with eligible students to arrange for early final exams. Case Write-Ups You are encouraged (but not required) to do the case assignments in groups of up to four people . If the case assignment is completed by a group, the group only needs to hand in a single version of the assignment. The assignment must be submitted electronically via Canvas before the start of the class for which it is due . Groups may contain members from different sections. However, the case write-up must be submitted before the start of the first class attended by any member of the group. The names of all group members who worked on the assignment must be on the front of the assignment. Bring a hard copy of the case write-up to class for discussion. When preparing cases, it is prohibited to get information, assistance, or materials from people who have prepared this case previously, either for this course or for any other course at any university. Doing so is a violation of the honor code. A case write-up should be a concise document that uses both text and tables to answer the case questions. The write-up should not exceed three pages of text plus three pages of tables. You should refer to the numbers in the case or in your tables to indicate how you arrived at your conclusions. Of the seven case write-ups, four will be graded on a credit/no-credit basis, and three will be graded on a point scale from zero to nine. It will not be disclosed in advance which write-ups will be graded on a credit/no-credit basis and which will be graded on the point scale. Write-ups that are not turned in on time will get a mark of no-credit or zero, without exception. Cases graded on the point scale will contribute more to the case grade. For case write-ups, each group member is required to sign the Chicago Booth Honor Code: “I pledge my honor that I have not violated the Honor Code in preparation of this case assignment.” Groups may type the honor code on a page and have each group member electronically sign below. Signing your name to an assignment that was completed by your group members but not by you constitutes representing others’ work as your own and is a violation of the honor code. Note that we will discuss each case in detail during the lectures, but “answers” to the cases will not be posted or distributed. Cases are learning tools for which there are many valid answers and the analytical approach is more important than the actual numbers.
