BUS 140 Chapters for first two weeks of semester (PDFs):


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

Together the students and instructor in each course create a learning community.  All members of this community are responsible for ensuring that learning takes place.  Thus, preparation and contribution to discussion are very important.  Students are expected to complete the assigned reading and preparatory assignments, contribute meaningfully and substantively.  The preponderance of learning takes place in the classroom - from each other.  I therefore require you to come to class and come on time.

The nature of in-class learning activities includes lecture, discussion, simulations, group and short writing assignments - although, not usually all in the same class.
