- Course Objectives :

- knowledge and understanding of marketing concepts and
terminology which form the foundation for advanced
coursework and practice in business

- Major Topics :
These are approximate dates.
- Term Consulting Project :
We will be doing an environmental analysis for a local business.
The exact details
of our assignment will be worked out during the
first three weeks of the semester, with a written document
outlining specifics of the assignment to be posted at the course
Web site around the fourth week.
Students will be working in teams of about four or five.
The final deliverable product of each team's consulting efforts
will be a written environmental assessment (probably around
fifteen or twenty pages) and a formal presentation.
- Attendance :
Students are expected to attend and participate in all class sessions.
Exams will be based in large part on issues discussed in class
(i.e., not everything will be out of the book).
Team meetings will be a formal part of our class meetings,
and students who are not present to complete graded assignments
associated with these meetings will be compensated with a
score of zero for that day of work; this will be used
in part to adjust the student's score on team efforts.
Excessive absence may result in a student being dropped from the course.
- Evaluation Methods :
Students will be evaluated on the basis of performance on
three in-class exams (75%, individual),
a written team consulting report (12.5%),
and a team consulting presentation (12.5%).
Individual student scores on team work will be weighted
by attendance at in-class team meetings and by ratings
that team members make of each team colleague.
- Grading System :
Final grades will be based on the following totals in points:
50=Team Report (weighted by contribution to team)
50=Team Presentation (weighted by contribution to team)
400 TOTAL POINTS POSSIBLE
