Educational Philosophy: Our course goals can only be achieved through a joint "on-line" effort. I will work to stimulate your interest and learning. However, you will be expected to display initiative and a program of self study as well. As a result, a primary objective of the course is to provide you with an environment that will reward your own intellectual effort.

I will provide you with ongoing progress reports of your average grade throughout the term. Course grades will be based on a weighted composite of performance evaluations in the areas contained in the following table:
Course Grading Scale:
900 - 1000
800 - 899
700 - 799
600 - 699
The three most important grading criteria for your work will be breadth, depth, and application/synthesis of course concepts.
What this means is in all our discussions and assignments I expect you to reference the terms and concepts we cover each week and apply the concepts using real life examples and illustrations. This will not only deepen your understanding of the course concepts, but also allow you to see the concepts in action.
I will submit your grades via the gradebook each week. You will also be able to see my feedback on your submissions. You can use it to improve your work each week.
We use a variety of assignments in this class to help you learn the fundamentals of marketing management.
When I grade your assignment I expect you to use concepts from the texts and our discussion and use real life examples to illustrate your ideas.
You should apply the concepts covered during the week. You will want to demonstrate that you have learned the material and are able to apply it to your assignments. Case studies require in-depth analysis and detailed explanation of your conclusions.
If you have any questions about the assignments, please don’t hesitate to ask-I am happy to help!
