Grades will be based on the above scale. There will be no plus/minus.

Your final grades will be turned in according to the University’s schedule and will be available to you shortly afterward.

Exams:
The particular style and content of each exam will be announced in class. (Exams are typically multiple choice and short answer.) I will post a review on the course website prior to each exam. All material covered in class, including readings, lectures, discussions, cases, videos, speakers, and student presentations will be covered on the exam.

If you are in an emergency situation, please call and leave me a message on my office phone. The final exam period for this course is W 4/24 at 8am.
