Midterm and Final Exams (30%) – Major examinations will be administered during the regular
examination weeks.

Research Paper (30%) – The class will be divided into groups with three to five (3-5) members each
(depending on the number of students enrolled in the class). Each group will prepare a research paper
which can be published in a journal and/or can be presented in a research conference. Research topic can be
derived from any of the topics in this syllabus. Our goal is to prepare you how to write a research paper
which is very important in the completion of your master’s thesis. A publishable research paper must not
exceed six (6 pages) including abstract, tables, and references. Text must be single-spaced. Other
guidelines in how to prepare your manuscript will be discussed during consultations. If given an
opportunity, you are encouraged to present your paper in a local, national, or international conference. A
paper that has been accepted for presentation will earn you 100% grade for Research Paper which is
equivalent to 30% of your grade. The paper should be submitted in hard copy and submit the same
electronically to

reading. It is expected that the reporter will discuss comprehensively the assigned reading.

Class Participation (20%) – As an MBA student, you are expected to demonstrate your knowledge in
organizational behavior (from theories you are learning to applications in your respective workplace).
Likewise, this goal will not be fully utilized if your attendance is erratic. Being present in our class sessions
means having the opportunity to share your knowledge with your classmates.

Other reminders:

Please do not forget to sign. If you cannot attend the class, you have to inform me in advance.

2. Cellphone Usage – Avoid using cellphones and other gadgets (including laptops) during class
discussions to avoid distractions.

3. Use of Audio-Visual Presentations – During reports, it is expected that you prepare PowerPoint
presentations (not Microsoft Word). Your PPTs must contain the summarized points and presented in
bullet type. Minimize the use of paragraphs. You may play some videos to supplement your report.

4. Consultations – Please do not hesitate to approach me for questions and clarifications regarding course
requirements and other class matters.

5. Syllabus – This syllabus is subject to change. Dates are tentative but we shall strive to finish all course
topics covered, discuss the assigned readings, and accomplish all requirements within the semester.
