Attendance and Participation 15 %
Much of the learning in this course comes from class discussion. Your classroom participation grade will be primarily based on attendance, class preparation, familiarity with the reading materials, and the quality of your contribution. Please note that regular attendance at lectures is compulsory in this class. The lecture will make “cold call” in class. Students who miss the class for more than 3 times may not pass this class.
Group weekly presentation 30%
Dr. Fu will team up 5- 7 students each team to maximize the diversity. Each week (from the 3rd week September 25), the assigned team will prepare a PPT presentation for the assigned chapter. Each team needs to include at least five recent news article that fits the topic of the chapter you are presenting. For example, you might choose one news article about corporate-level strategies being undertaken by a company covered in a recent Fortune, Forbes, Business Week, The Economist, Financial Times, or Wall Street Journal article. To stimulate class participation, the rest of teams are required to ask around 3 to 5 questions per week to the presenting team in class. Moreover, each team (excluding the presenting team) need to turn in their questions in written in class.
Group case assignment 10%
There will be case assignments in the whole semester. In each group assignment, your group’s case assignment should explicitly address these questions. You are expected to hand in the hard copy of the group assignment in class. Case analysis should be no more than 3 pages. No late assignments will be accepted.
