COURSE CONTENTS

As a general policy, no make-up work or exams will be granted unless required for medical reasons, in which case a note from a physician is required.

An important part of the course is the effectiveness of your individual participation in the class discussions. Although we expect participation by every member of the class, we will place primary emphasis on the quality of the classroom contributions. In grading class performance, we will give very little emphasis to redundant or extraneous contribution.

Contributions that add new insights into the case issues or class discussions will be rewarded.
