The course will involve a lecture format with extensive interaction between students and the instructor. The teaching style will mix theory and academic concepts with practical applications.
All the classes will have a large support of multimedia resources.
Students will be challenged to develop a concept or idea, and then apply it in real-world entrepreneurial contexts.
Please treat this class as you would a job, understanding that due dates must be met, and attendance is expected and noted. Attendance is required. It is not an option. The course involves regular attendance at classes and completion of all proposed activities. Excused absences consist of illness (with doctor’s note). Interviews are NOT considered excused absences. Students who anticipate scheduling conflicts should not enrol in the course. The instructor will take attendance at all class sessions. Virtual participation in class would be considered, talk with the professor before enrolment.
An attendance of less than 7 classes (excused or not) involve the completion of a final exam to pass the course.
The final score is calculated according to the following table:
Class attendance and contribution/participation: 30% (score proportional to attendance and participation)
Homework activities (deliveries): 70% (all homework activities must be completed)
All activities have to be delivered the day fixed by teacher. Every day of delay substracts a point from the final score. More than seven days of delay will be considered “not delivered”.
