Section Expectation

Please note that you are required to have a computer that can work with RESPONDUS in order to take exams. Please be sure that you have a camera and that your computer meets the minimum requirements for the business school. Note that Chromebooks DO NOT work with RESPINDUS. This is especially true if you are not on campus. I also recommend having more than one monitor, so you can work and view at the same time. Since this is a Mixed Mode class, some of your classes periods will be remote.


There will be 3 exams and a final. The exams correspond to the course modules. At the end of each module, there will also be a project and a quiz, which are designed to help you prepare for the exam and to solidify your knowledge. There will also be frequent homework assignments. Exams 70% Projects 10% Quizzes -10% Homework - 10%
