Grade Philosophy

  • The attainment of a high grade is not one of the objectives of the course. However, if you learn, you will likely wind up with a good grade as well.

  • To achieve good grades, you need to: apply concepts, collaborate with teammates, follow instructions, think critically and communicate your sound thinking in a clear, logical way.

MGT 500 St Joseph's College - Dr. Coty Keller


Teamwork = One third

ExamOne third

Project (Managerial Development plan/SMAC) One third

75% of teamwork score = management team's performance on class activities. 25% peer evaluation

Final = open book, short answers

Grades come from application of concepts to real world
