Educational Philosophy: My educational philosophy is one of interaction based on lectures, current events, homework assignments, class discussions, student presentations, Mid-term and Final examinations. The emphasis is on the exploration of ideas and issues confronting the modern operations and supply management.
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.
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment: This course is conducted primarily in English, which will require the student to be proficient in reading and writing the English language at the college level.
Grades will be based on the following:
- Students will be required to read all assigned material prior to class and be prepared for class discussions. Homework and Exams will be based on assigned reading material and any other material presented in class.
- Each student will be required to complete all homework
- The Final Exam will serve as the core assessment for this course and will be administered during Week #8. The core assessment will be worth 30%.

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 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.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Students walking out of class without prior notification to the instructor will receive an unexcused absence "U" for that day of class. Students are expected to attend all class meetings and be on time, being habitually late or leaving early is not acceptable. Attendance is recorded at each class meeting; if students are going to be absent, notification to the instructor is required; otherwise the absence will be recorded as unexcused. Absences will result in participation point deductions. Late homework will not be accepted. Academic dishonesty can result in immediate release from the course and a failing grade.
