BUS 120 Pt1 Pt2 Pt3

IMPORTANT NOTE on CLOSED Classes: All the online classes and many of the on-campus classes close quickly. You should register ASAP if you are interested in any class. If you change your mind, please drop the class immediately so others can enroll. If the class is closed, consider the Wait List procedures; be aware of the rules and the limitations. Otherwise, consider these options: 1) register for another section if available; 2) register for another class; 3) consider registering in a future semester; 4) show up for the first day of an on-campus class and discuss with the instructor; or 5) forget about it and move on. The instructor will not intervene with the wait list procedure.

Please be aware that, once a class reaches maximum enrollment and “closes,” on or after the first day of the semester, even if “available” spaces appear on SURF due to drops, it is within the instructor's complete discretion on whether to add more students at that time. Drops after the first day are normal attrition and are factored in when setting the maximum enrollment. The class has started and important assignments and subject matter have already been covered. Please do not email the instructor. Thank you for your understanding.

Teaching Philosophy/Style and Class Management/Activities

My classes will be a combination of lectures, group discussions and guest speakers. My goal is to create a fun environment to promote idea sharing and learning. At the beginning of each class I will give very clear expectations of what students need to do. My communication style is direct.

I am a part time instructor and work full time, I will bring into the classroom real business challenges that are being faced in today’s environment. My hope is that my class offers you information and knowledge that you can use in various parts of your life.

What I expect of students: I expect students to attend class on time, come prepared to participate and be respectful of each other. I expect students to read the assigned reading and prepare for exams.
