The class will be taught using a combination of reading, lecture, demonstration and discussion of sample management problems, case studies, reports, quizzes, videos and writing. One of the best way to demonstrate and improve your understanding is to explain (teach) the material to a classmate; therefore, students are encouraged to work together on all parts of the course except quizzes and the final exam. In addition students will be required to lecture/report on the application of material from the course to a firm or organization that they are familiar with.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
All Park University courses must include a core assessment that measures the course's Core Learning Outcomes. The purpose of this assessment is to determine if expectations have been met concerning mastery of learning outcomes across all instructional modalities.
For this course, the core assessment is a Comprehensive Final Examination to be administered in all sections of MG 375. This exam is worth at least 30 percent of the student's final grade and will test students' mastery of the Core Learning Outcomes (as listed on this syllabus) through definitions, essay, and/or multiple choice questions.
This core assessment is a CLOSED BOOK, CLOSED NOTES comprehensive examination that must be administered and proctored in the classroom and may not be given as a take-home examination. Students should not have access to the exam or its questions before it is administered. The duration of the exam can be no longer than two hours.
No computers, or materials other than a writing instrument and a calculator without text functions, and communication may be used for the exam; this applies to all students, regardless of whether the exam is for on-line or face-to-face students. Completion of the exam is strictly individual; students may not work in groups to complete the exam.

Students are required to read the text, complete assigned cases, course reports, chapter quizzes, chapter application reports, and the final exam. In adddition participation and attendance will be included in course grade. Cases, chapter applications, and course reports include both a written paper and an oral presentation both due on the scheduled date.
The course will be graded based on the following allocation;
(Points listed are equal to the percentage alloted.) Attendance 5 points, Quizzes 10 points, Case study 15 points, Chapter Application reports 10 points (1st) 10 points 2nd, Course Report 20 points, core assessment final exam 30 points (The comprehensive final is not a take home exam. The core assessment final is not open book or open note. Total scores of 90 to 100 points will be considered an A. 80 to 89 will receive a B, 70 to 79 will receive a C, 60 to 69 will receive a D. Any score below 60 points will be failing.
The course grade for students will be based on the overall average of homework and tests taken during the course in accordance with the weighting of the various requirements as stated in the syllabus.
All final exams in all School of Business and Management courses will be comprehensive and will be closed book and closed notes. They will constitute 30% of the total course grade and will not be a take-home exam. They will be completed during the test week in the period designated by the registrar or by the Proctor in the case online courses. If calculators are allowed, they will not be multifunctional electronic devices that include features such as: phones, cameras, instant messaging, pagers, and so forth. Electronic Computers will not be allowed on final exams unless an exception is made by the Dean of the School of Business and Management.
Late work will be automatically deducted 10% or one letter grade for each class period that it is late. Except for TDY's, even if you explain the problem to the instructor and reschedule your turn in or presentation, this deduction will still apply.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Students are expected to accept each other's abilities as well as their inabilities. The only dumb question is the one you do not ask. If a student misses a class period where a quiz is given, the quiz will be made up taking a different quiz immediately before or immediately after the next class period. If a student knows in advance of an absence, they should discuss the absence and quiz schedule ahead of time. Students are expected to have read the assigned material, including classmates cases, before class. If you do not understand the assigned reading or case or are unable to complete the assignment, you must check with the instructor before class.
Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life. Park University 2008-2009 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87All work submitted is expected to be the work of the student and the student alone. They may have their work reviewed by a classmate or a friend and are expected to be spell and grammar checked. If you consult an "expert" in a given field, you must annotate this in your report.
Plagiarism:Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. Park University 2008-2009 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87You are not an expert in operations and production management and most of your work will come from other sources. Always cite your source and give credit where credit is due. If in doubt, give the source. As an extreme example, if all of your report is a series of quotations from list of sources and you assemble the material intelligently and cite each source, then you will be given a good grade. If you fail to cite the source for work that is obviously not your own, you may receive a failing grade for the assignment and in gross cases a failing grade for the course.
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
Park University 2008-2009 Undergraduate Catalog Page 89-907. Assignments missed because of absence are due on the next date that you are in class.
Disability Guidelines:Park University is committed to meeting the needs of all students that meet the criteria for special assistance. These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities. In the case of any inconsistency between these guidelines and federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply.
