The School of Business Administration is accredited by AACSB International, The Assocation to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. AACSB International accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. Institutions that earn accreditation confirm their commitment to quality and continuous improvement through a rigorous and comprehensive peer review. AACSB International accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in management education and, as such, adds value to your degree. The AACSB International accreditation standards require you to:
Teaching and learning is a partnership between faculty and students. Faculty will fulfill their partnership obligations by serving as advisor, consultant, mentor and purveyor of general comments and clarifications of difficult or confusing concepts. You will fulfill your partnership obligations by being a fully participative, responsive, helping, and working team member of the class.
Homework, take-home exams, papers, projects, case assignments and class participation all play an important role in your education in your courses. They are an essential part of the learning process in that they require the synthesis and extension of concepts. They also help both the student and the instructor to evaluate the student's progress in mastering the material. Past experience indicates that generally the course material cannot be adequately mastered without active involvement on your part.
Discussion of homework assignments with others who are also struggling with them can be highly beneficial and is encouraged. Most real-life problems are solved through team efforts, and it is important to learn how to solve problems cooperatively. The interaction with others working on the same problem often reveals different approaches to common difficulties.
You will also satisfy your obligations as a student to the extent that you communicate with your faculty and with your academic advisor in a timely fashion. Should you have problems with the material in a course, or situations in your professional or personal life which interfere with your ability to perform up to the School of Business Administration's expectations, you should contact your faculty and your advisor immediately to make them aware of your situation. Do not wait until your grade in a course has already suffered before apprising the faculty and staff of your circumstances.
Each student is responsible for maintaining high standards of academic honesty and ethical behavior. In order that each student understands what is (or is not) acceptable behavior, the following guidelines are offered.
Discussions of assignments with other students and members of the faculty is both permitted and encouraged as a constructive educational practice. Students are expected to write their exams, quizzes and papers on their own, based on their individual level of progress with the material. Copying of anotherís work and representing it as oneís own work is a serious academic offense, and will be treated as such. (See Student Handbook for a detailed description of the UHV Academic Honesty Policy).
