Educational Philosophy: The Business Policy course is concerned with the entire company organization from the view of the general management. It is a different position than most students have experienced and can be difficult to master without careful attention to learning. It requires active learning, analysis, and application. It is not a position that allows coasting along to succeed. Top management must be knowledgeable in many aspects that relate to the organization and its industry membership. The manager (and now students) must develop an extraordinary ability to see the overall picture and learn what is not already known. It demands an intellectual effort of initiative and self-discipline. Interactivity in the course is paramount for successful learning. Students must study the lectures, assigned material, take quizzes/examinations, and participate in discussions. Ideas will be exchanged and counter perspectives will be considered. Students MUST again exercise self-discipline and must have all work turned in on time just as they will be required to be when they become CEOs.

The Proctored final exam for online courses must be passed with a grade of 60% or higher in order to pass the course regardless of the overall average. The grade for students who pass the proctored final will be based on the overall average of homework and tests taken during the course. The proctored final exam must address only material which the student has been taught in class.
