: My goal is to provide students with the information about and experience with management needed to effectively use management tools in their chosen profession or other endeavors. The class will be taught using a combination of lecture, demonstration, and discussion concerning the material contained in the text. In addition a large part of the course will be dedicated to the application of the material learned to case studies and to the organizations where the students are involved. Students are encouraged to work together and critique each other in the preparation of their cases and reports. In order to encourage improved writing and oral skills in all students, all case studies and reports will be presented both orally and written. Applying these new skills to “real life” is important to remembering and using these new skills; therefore, a management study report, also written and oral, will be prepared concerning an organization the student is familiar with. The key to this report is to determine what management processes and steps the organization is employing, and to critique that effort based on the material from the course.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Students are required to complete one “Course Report,” of the application of this course’s material to their chosen organization., plus two case studies, all quizzes, the core assessment casse, and the final exam. The final exam (The comprehensive final is not a take-home tests. The comprehensive final is a closed book and closed notes exam.). The core assessment case is also closed book and closed notes. Other Requirements: Students must check their Pirate Mail and insure that Pirate Mail is forwarded to their regular email account.
The course will be graded based on the following allocation; Attendance & participation 5 points - 5%, , 2 to 4 quizzes 10 points total, 15%, Case Studies 40 points, 40% (10 for the each case & 20 for the core assessment case), Course Application report 15 points, 15%, Final Exam 30 points, 30%. Total of 100 points. 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, and 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 week that it is late. Getting permission from the instructor after you have failed to complete an assignment on time does not preclude this deduction.
