The graded course elements and the assigned weights are listed below (100 percent total):
  • 20 percent - Individual contribution to case discussion ("participation")
  • 30 percent - Case study report
  • 50 percent - Final Examination
Each component of a student's grade in this course will be assigned as a percentage grade (ranging from 0% to 100%). The final grade for the course will be calculated by multiplying each grade by the weight in the grading system described above.

Course letter grades will be assigned using the plus/minus system. As a guideline, students should target at least a performance level of 90 percent to earn an A- or above, 80 percent to earn a B- or above, and 70 percent to earn a C. The assignment of plus/minus within these general grade categories will be determine based on breaks in the overall distribution of grades and the instructor's discretion.

The more you put into the course, the more you get out of it.
