Educational Philosophy: My educational philosophy is treat all students as adult learners. Readings, examinations, and the like contribute to the educational process, however, classroom participation and discussion of real world experiences is very important. There will be total academic freedom in the classroom.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
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.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: No talking when I am speaking or when another student is speaking. Please be on time and remain for the entire class. Please turn of all cell phones and beepers. Do not even think of looking at your text messages. You will have ample time to do this during class breaks. If you have an unexcused absence (one that I have not apporved in advance) your final grade will be reduced by one grade for each absence. Everyone is expected to participate in class discussions.
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.

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. Additional information concerning Park University's policies and procedures related to disability can be found on the Park University web page: http://www.park.edu/disability .
Additional Information:No research paper is required for this course, as the examinations are quite challenging. However, an oral presentation of no more than 10 minutes is required. You may use your notes, but do not read your report. The notes do not have to be turned in. Topics must be approved by me in advance. Your presentation must be professionasl and relevant and contribute to student learning. The examinations will be given in class, not on ecompanion. There will be discussion questions on ecompanion which you must answer on line and complete prior to the end of the course.
