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 chapter of the previous class. Each team needs to include at least three 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 presenting team is required to prepare 3 to 5 questions in advance to lead the class discussion. Moreover, each team (excluding the presenting team) need to turn in their questions in written in class.
Group case assignment 10%
There will be one case assignment in the whole semester. The case is: challenge the boss or step down (Harvard Business Review). In the 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.
Group Project – selected topics 25%
This group project offers you an opportunity to apply knowledge learned in class to real management
issues. In the group project, you are expected to choose one corporate event that is related to the topics we discussed in class. Each group is expected to write one report about this corporate event. Each group will prepare (a) a 10-page written report and (b) a group presentation. Each group will have 30 minutes for your presentation in two class sessions. More details will be provided in class.
