You are encouraged to bring in relevant current event updates and articles to share with the class. In class activities students will analyze corporate actions, successes and failures, strategy effectiveness, profit results, in view of corporate objectives. We will use the Moodle learning platform to distribute course material.
The assessment will be through participation and a final assignment. Assigned readings will be the responsibility of the student and may not be part of the classroom lectures. Students are expected to have read the class text assignments and be prepared to make quality comments during class discussions.
