BUSA 4980 • STRATEGICMANAGEMENTCOURSESYLLABUS• SPRING20171. Class Participation - Students are expected to competently prepare for and participate in case analyses and class discussion.The success of this class is heavily dependent on every student being fully prepared and present each day. Your success as a student (both in learning and in grade) and mine as an instructor are dependent on this preparation. Attendance at all classes is expected but full credit for participation will not be awarded for attendance alone, or even for frequent participation if it does not advance the learning of the class. Consider the following evaluation criteria as you prepare for cases and participate in class discussions:Are your comments relevant to the case and do they include analyses that go beyond recitation of case facts?
