Exams 1, 2, and 3 will cover the material presented before that respective exam. Exam 4 will be a cumulative and optionalfinal exam. If you take all exams, your lowest exam score will be dropped, so that your course grade is based on your three highest exam scores. If you are satisfied with your first 3 exams you DO NOT have to take the final exam. Make-up exams will ONLY be given for university required activities. No make-up exams will be given for any other reason. If you are unable to take an exam during its scheduled time, then that exam will count as the one that you drop and you must take the final exam to replace it. Each exam is the property of the professor and should not be removed from my office.

TEAM PROJECT: Organizational Behavior and the Movies

The organizational behavior concepts and principles that we will cover during this session are present in many situations, including the movies. I will randomly assign small groups. Each group will select a movie to analyze using OB concepts and theories that will be discussed in this course. Since there will be no overlap of movies, team choices will be approved on a first come first served basis. This team project includes a 20 minute group presentation and an individual team analysis (4 pages).
