Educational Philosophy: Education is a life-long process and may mean something different to each of us. This class may be directly related to some students major's or their current job and for others there may be no direct relation to either. However, between the course material and the classroom sharing of personal experiences, I hope all of us will learn something that can be used either in our personal lives or to improve our work experiences.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Class Assessment: Two Exams (a mid-term and a comprehensive final), two quizzes, Presentation- a one to two page typewritten (double spaced) OUTLINE of your presentation on any course subject, a five minute presentation, and assigned homework (based on material covered).

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.

Classroom Rules of Conduct: Students whose behavior is detrimental to good order in a classroom will be dismissed from class. Such behavior includes, but not limited to, use of abusive or obscene language, attending class under the influence of drugs or alcohol, etc. Students who are dismissed from class may be given a failing grade, suspension, or expulsion from Park University.
