V. STUDENT ASESSMENT & ACADEMIC PROGRESS Article 12 Required presence The EMBA students are required to attend all EMBA modules. All planned absences must be announced to the EMBA Office at latest 48 hours in advance by or oral communication. Emergency absences must be reported in due time to the EMBA Program Manager. Students may not be absent for more than five days (5) throughout of the program. In case of justified absence for more than five days, he/she will be normally required to take substitute course(s) in the EMBA program in the following year and will not be entitled to receive the degree until all course requirements are met. The EMBA student is required to keep an acceptable overall record of on-time arrival for class sessions (as determined by the EMBA Program Director). Students can check their current absence status with the Program Manager at any time during the study and will receive a formal warning after being absent for four days in total. Students who miss more than 50% of any course (or part of a course taught by a particular Professor) may complete the course only with the permission of the Professor(s) teaching the course and the EMBA Office. Otherwise, students are required to take substitute courses (see above). 6
7 Under exceptional circumstances only, the EMBA Program Director may decide to assign remedial work to compensate for absences in excess of the normal limits stated above. In such cases, the student would still need to submit satisfactory remedial work, on time, as a condition to receive the degree. Article 13 Academic evaluation of courses with individual exams Academic evaluation of students in a number of courses includes individual exams. Exams may take the form of either in-class exams (open or closed notes) or essay exams. Specific exam timing and schedules will be provided to students. In-class exams are scheduled to be written on specific dates and are governed by the following rules: (i) (ii) (iii) (iv) Students can only enter the examination room five (5) minutes in advance of the start time. Only one student may leave the examination room at a time. Each student must complete individual exams independently and without collusion with other students (see section regarding Academic Integrity Standards). Students who are unable to attend the exam due to illness or an emergency must inform the EMBA Office as soon as possible prior to the scheduled exam time. Alternative examination arrangements will be discussed in these cases. In those courses that do not include examinations, the course professor will explain the required submissions for academic evaluation. This normally includes a project or reflection paper. Article 14 Submission deadlines for reflection papers and other graded papers There are specific deadlines for submission of reflection papers and other graded papers. The EMBA Program Director has the right to apply a grade penalty to papers that are submitted late, particularly if a student has developed a pattern of late submission of papers for assessment. In addition, repeated failure to meet deadlines for submission of reflection and other graded papers can constitute evidence of unprofessional behavior to be referred to the Faculty Council for resolution (see Article 34). Article 15 Grading Scheme for Coursework and Examinations International Scale IEDC Grading scale Definition A Excellent (outstanding achievement) B Very Good (well above the average standard) C Good (generally sound work, exceeds minimal requirements, typically includes class average grade) 7
8 D Sufficient (performance meets the minimum requirements) E Less than 2.0 Fail (does not meet minimum standards) Each course in the Program includes a syllabus that outlines the coverage of topics, schedule, and evaluation scheme. Students in the program receive a grade at the end of each course based on the specific requirements set out in the course syllabus. Some courses are evaluated on a PASS/FAIL basis rather than the scale shown in the table above. It is important for students to fully understand the expectations for academic evaluation as prescribed in each course syllabus. Students are encouraged to speak with professors regarding course evaluation expectations and processes to ensure these expectations are fully understood in advance. All submissions should be the original work of the individual or team making the submission. In particular, students must not commit either plagiarism or collusion. More about this issue is specified in Section VI: Academic Integrity Regulations. Re-takes Article 16 If a student fails an exam, he/she will be required to retake it, and the maximum re-take grade will normally reflect meeting minimum course requirements. In exceptional circumstances, the EMBA Program Director may recommend that the Faculty Council awards a higher exam re-take grade. Students who have to re-take an exam will be advised of the re-take exam date at least one week in advance. Only one re-take is permitted. If a student fails for the second time, the IEDC Faculty Council will recommend a suitable course of action, which may range from remedial work and a second exam re-take to withdrawal from the Program. Individual courses without exams Article 17 After attending a course with no formal examination, the student is required to write a reflection paper. The purpose of such assignments is to encourage students to reflect on the key lessons learned during the course. While graded, reflection papers are also designed as a means of personal development. The reflection paper is graded as pass/not pass. End of Module Integrative Exams Article 18 Students are also assessed through two Integrative End-of-Module (EOM) Exams. These are team exams based on integrative and complex case studies. Teams perform an in- 8
9 depth analysis of an integrative case study under time pressure and present and defend their analysis and recommendations to a faculty member. All members of a team receive a common grade for the integrative exam. If a team fails an Integrative Exam, it will be asked to re-take this exam on a date set by the EMBA Program Director in consultation with the team members. Successful Integrative Exam re-takes will result in a maximum team and individual grade that reflects meeting minimum course requirements. Failing an EOM exam re-take will be referred to the Faculty Council for resolution. If a student misses the Integrative Exam, he/she normally has to take the exam in the next year. Exceptionally, the EMBA Program Director may ask the Faculty Council to determine whether he/she can do the exam individually. Article 19 Executive MBA Integrated Consultancy Project The Integrative Consultancy Project forms a critical portion of the Program curriculum. Students are formed into teams to complete the Project. All members of each student team receive the same final grade for the Project. The Project has each student team working with a client organization on a specific management challenge. The Project consists of three stages with the ultimate goal of providing the client organization with insightful analysis and recommendations to address the specific challenge. Presentations are required at each stage of the Project and teams receive oral feedback from their Faculty Project Mentor after each of the three client presentations. Participation and Contribution Article 20 Students are expected to be present at all classes and to contribute actively to class discussions, teamwork assignments, field visits and the Integrative Consultancy Project. Student participation is subject to evaluation at multiple levels. Courses in the Program typically include a component of the evaluation for class participation and contribution. At the course level, this evaluation may include an assessment by the professor as well as a peer assessment by classmates. At the end of the program, based on the participation and contribution across all courses and the Project, the EMBA Program Director assigns a grade for participation to each student. If a student receives an overall failing grade for class participation from an individual Professor, this development will be referred to the Faculty Council for resolution. Academic Status Reports Article 21 The Academic Status Report is a document where all final grades of the courses listed in Article 11 of the students are recorded. The Students have access to their individual records on the Members Area throughout the program. The Academic Status Report is classified as information of a personal nature and therefore treated according to the legal regulation of personal data in Slovene legislation. 9
10 In case of any concerns about a student s performance and progress, the Faculty Council addresses the issues on a case-by-case basis. Article 22 Students Responsibility for Academic Progress It is a student s responsibility to inform the Program Director(s) at the earliest possible date of any medical, learning disability, or other challenge that may impede his or her ability to meet the academic progress standards of the Program. Leave of Absence Article 23 In the case of a serious personal or professional challenge, a student may submit a request to the Faculty Council asking for a leave of absence from the Program. The Faculty Council will make the final decision regarding such a request. If approved, a leave of absence may be granted with certain conditions. Normally, one of these conditions is that a student must re-enroll in the Program within a maximum of 3 years. All conditions listed in the approved leave of absence must be met in order to re-enroll in the Program. Every effort will be made to reinsert the student into the same place in the Program where he or she was granted a leave of absence, notwithstanding changes to the curriculum. The Faculty Council will decide all details regarding a student returning from a leave of absence and reintegrating with the Program. Article 24 Academic requirements to receive the IEDC EMBA diploma and master in management diploma Each student in the EMBA program must successfully complete all of the required courses and prescribed number of elective courses in the Program. Credit is granted for each course successfully completed towards this academic requirement. A total of 120 ECTS are required for the MBA. Note that 1 ECTS is considered equivalent to 25 study hours. Study hours refer to the time students devote to a course whether inside the classroom or outside of the classroom in team meetings as well as individual preparation, including time during modules at IEDC and time at home between modules. To receive the IEDC MBA degree and master in management diploma, students must meet the following requirements: - Satisfactory completion of all individual exams and assignments. - Satisfactory completion of the End-of-Module Exams. - Satisfactory completion of all three stages of the Integrated Consultancy Project. - Satisfactory contribution to class discussions end of program participation grade. The IEDC Faculty Council can ask a student to withdraw from the EMBA Program if any of the above conditions is not met. 10
11 Article 25 Composition & Calculating of the Weighted Grade Students average grade in the program is calculated as a weighted average based on the grade achieved and the ECTS weight of the course. Note that courses evaluated on a PASS/FAIL basis will not be included in the calculation of the weighted average. All courses and the final grades, regardless of the grading system used, will be reported on students Academic Status Reports. At the end of the Program, students receive a Composite Weighted Grade report. The Composite Weighted Grade is calculated as follows: (i) (ii) (iii) 40% weight based on the grade in the Integrated Consultancy Project 40% weight based on the average grade of all exams 20% weight based on the average grade of individual participation. At graduation from the Program, Honors may be awarded to some class participants based on exceptional individual performance throughout the Program, on performance in the Integrative Consulting Project, and on proven leadership and motivation of other students throughout the year. The EMBA Program Director recommends the Honor s list which requires approval from the Faculty Council. Conferral of the Master Diploma Article 26 The Dean of the Faculty confers the master diploma, diploma supplement and MBA diploma. The conferral is made within the IEDC Graduation Ceremony each December. Article 27 The master diploma bears the name of the IEDC - Bled School of Management, Postgraduate studies. The diploma includes the full name of the recipient of the master and her/his date and place of birth and the date of conferral. It bears the seal of the IEDC - Bled School of Management, Postgraduate studies. The IEDC diploma supplement includes all academic details of the program in accordance with Slovene legislation and is in both Slovenian and English language. VI. ACADEMIC INTEGRITY REGULATIONS Article 28 The IEDC has strict standards governing the academic integrity of all coursework and examinations. All submissions for academic evaluation must be the original work of the individual or team making the submission. In particular, students must not commit either plagiarism or collusion. If students have any questions about what constitutes plagiarism or collusion, they should clarify their questions with the EMBA Program Director. All students in the Program are subject to the academic integrity standards and regulations explained below. In the case where a student violates any one of these 11
12 regulations, the normal consequence is the student s dismissal from the Program. The specific decision regarding the consequences for violating academic integrity regulations rests with the Faculty Council and is determined on a case-by-case basis. Program Managers, Faculty and Staff present during an in-class exam have a responsibility to assess the appropriateness of individuals behavior during the exam according to IEDC standards and to report possible deviations to the EMBA Program Director. Faculty grading in-class exams or reflection papers have a similar responsibility. Article 29 Plagiarism Plagiarism is the offence of attributing someone else s work as your own. One form of plagiarism is the copying of other people s work or ideas (with or without their knowledge) and submitting it under your own name. Plagiarism is an offence whether committed with intent or not. Easy access to a very large source of electronic information through the Internet has made the academic integrity issue of plagiarism a major concern within academic institutions. IEDC students should note that their individual and team submissions are subject to electronic analysis to identify any content or portion of a submission found on the Internet but not referenced in the submission. Meeting the academic requirements of the Program will frequently require students to research a topic. Researching any topic requires reading the works of others. It is perfectly acceptable for students to refer to or quote the works of others in their submissions as long as correct standards for such references are followed. The aim of such standards is to ensure that the works of others is not misrepresented as a student s original work. An explanation of acceptable forms of academic referencing and citing is provided in the Citing Rules contained in the EMBA Handbook. Article 30 Collusion Collusion is the offence of submitting work as your own when it has been completed jointly with another person or persons (whether or not these others are students). Please note that also any student who knowingly aids or allows another student to copy his or her work will be regarded as guilty of collusion. Article 31 Responsibility for Academic Integrity It is the responsibility of students in the Program to understand and uphold these academic integrity standards and apply them correctly in order to avoid plagiarism or collusion in the work submitted for evaluation. If a student is unsure whether an action is a violation of academic integrity standards then he or she should ask the EMBA Program Director or course Professor in advance. This applies to uncertainty of whether the format of the inclusion of the work of others in any submission constitutes plagiarism. As some of the academic requirements of the Program are satisfied through the work created by teams, special consideration should be given to maintaining the academic standards when submissions are being prepared collaboratively. Every member of a student team preparing and submitting work for academic evaluation as part of a student team is equally responsible for the academic integrity of the submitted work. A 12
13 violation of the academic integrity regulations in a team submission will be considered as individual violations of the academic integrity regulations by each member of the team. Students must read and understand the required standards and formats for references, citations, and quotations to be used in the preparation of work for submission for academic credit; IEDC Citing Rules It is strongly recommended that any student who has concerns that his or her individual work or the work of the team of which he or she is a member may not meet the academic standards of the Program seek advice. The EMBA Program Director(s) and course Professors are available to offer such advice. VII. ACADEMIC DECISIONS Article 32 Course Grades As previously noted, it is important for students to fully understand the expectations for academic evaluation in each course. Students are encouraged to speak with professors regarding course evaluation expectations and processes to ensure these expectations are fully understood in advance. It is the right of all students to receive feedback from the course professor that explains the basis of an academic evaluation or grade. Once a student receives an academic evaluation or grade by the course professor, the primary line of inquiry for a student to understand the grade achieved is to discuss that matter with the course professor. Such discussions can result in the professor maintaining or changing his/her initial grade. In very exceptional cases where there may be strong evidence of irregularities in the grading process, the EMBA Program Director may ask the Faculty Council to arbitrate and resolve individual course grading disputes. To provide minimum consistency across faculty evaluations, the EMBA Program Director may ask individual faculty to provide average grade evaluations in a range that is consistent with good overall class evaluations and approved by the Faculty Council. Article 33 Processes for Resolving Issues Related to Academic Progression, Academic Integrity, and Professional Behavior (i) Second Failure of an Exam: If a student fails an exam for the second time, this issue will automatically be referred to the Faculty Council for resolution and the student will be advised of this development orally or in or registered mail. Normally, a second failed exam will result in asking the student to withdraw from the program. The student may request to have the Faculty Council consider extenuating circumstances before reaching its final decision. This could be achieved through written and/or oral presentation from the student directly to Faculty Council members. Within 3 days of being advised of a second exam failure, the student is required to advise the Chairperson of the Faculty Council whether he/she wants to provide additional evidence or argumentation to the Faculty Council for consideration. In case of an oral student presentation, Faculty Council members may address other questions to the student 13
14 which could help the Faculty Council to reach a decision. The Faculty Council may decide to conduct interviews with other parties before reaching a decision. Normally, the process for reaching a final decision by the Faculty Council would not extend beyond 10 days. (ii) Likely or Observed Breach of the Academic Regulations: Concerns of suspected or observed violation of the Academic Regulations related to plagiarism or collusion can be brought to the attention of an EMBA Program Director by IEDC staff, professors, EMBA students, other broadly defined members of the IEDC community, or initiated by the EMBA Program Director. If the EMBA Program Director concludes that there is likely or observed evidence of breach of the Academic Regulations, he/she will share these concerns initially in a meeting or correspondence with the student(s) who may be in breach of the Academic Regulations. At this time, the student(s) will have an opportunity to reveal extenuating circumstances and/or to challenge the evidence on breach of Academic Regulations. If the EMBA Program Director concludes that there is still strong evidence of likely breach of the Academic Regulations, he/she will advise the student(s) of this development and refer the issue to the Faculty Council for resolution. The EMBA Program Director will provide written documentation of findings and concerns to both the student(s) and the Faculty Council. Normally, severe breaches of the Academic Integrity regulations will result in asking the involved student(s) to withdraw from the Program. The student(s) may request to have the Faculty Council consider extenuating circumstances before reaching its final decision. This could be achieved through written and/or oral presentation from the student(s) directly to Faculty Council members. Within 3 days of being advised that the issue will be referred to the Faculty Council, the student(s) is/are required to advise the Chairperson of the Faculty Council whether he/she/they want(s) to provide additional evidence or argumentation to the Faculty Council for consideration. In case of an oral student presentation, Faculty Council members may address other questions to the student which could help the Faculty Council to reach a decision. The Faculty Council may decide to conduct interviews with other parties before reaching a decision. Normally, the process for reaching a final decision by the Faculty Council would not extend beyond 10 days. (iii) Standards of Professional and Ethical Behavior IEDC expects that all EMBA students will maintain high standards of professional and ethical behavior. Specifically, but not exhaustively, Program participants should not engage in conduct which is harming the image of the profession, is harming his/her student fellows progress and expectations, or is intentionally damaging the school s property. Excessive lack of timely arrival for class sessions or lack of effort to prepare for and contribute to study and project group discussions can constitute unprofessional behavior. The processes for resolving cases of unprofessional behavior are identical to those described in section (ii) above and can result in asking a student to withdraw from the Program. 14
15 Article 34 Removal from the program The EMBA student is excluded from further studies in the following cases: If an EMBA students fails twice to complete a required or elective course either because of unjustified absence or because of not passing the exam. Exceptionally, an EMBA student may be allowed to complete the exam based on remedial work and Faculty motion decision; If the Faculty Council decides that a student has severely breached the Academic Regulations and the Faculty Council is not willing to propose another resolution to resolve this issue If an EMBA students does not complete the Program within five years after being enrolled into the study program; If an EMBA student engages in conduct which is harming the image of the profession, is harming his/her student fellows, intentionally damages the school 's property, or has otherwise displayed unprofessional or non-ethical behavior; If an EMBA students does not meet financial obligations or other mandatory stipulations defined by the study contract. If any of the above conditions becomes evident, the EMBA Program Director will request the Faculty Council to remove such a student from the program. Article 35 Faculty Council The Faculty Council has the responsibility of ensuring compliance with the Program s academic standards and regulations. The Faculty Council meets on a case-by-case basis and is comprised of: - Chair, member of IEDC faculty - Three other IEDC faculty members - Head of Postgraduate Studies Office (ex-officio) Mandate of the Faculty Council: - to deal with cases which could result in asking a student to withdraw from the EMBA Program, - to deal with exceptional cases of grade appeal, - to approve final selection of the EMBA honor s list, - to decide the conditions for an approved student leave of absence from the program, - to review and propose changes to the EMBA curriculum, - other matters of insuring standards of this regulations as defined by this regulations. The Chair and members of the Faculty Council are appointed by the Dean of IEDC for a three-year term and are eligible for re-appointment. The quorum for a Faculty Council decision is three voting members. In case of absence or potential conflict of interest, the Chairperson will appoint another member of the Faculty Council to chair the meetings on a specific issue. If the Faculty Council does not agree unanimously, decisions are made on the basis of majority of the votes cast by all present members. In case of split votes, the Faculty Council Chair vote decides. If there is a voting, a faculty member who is bringing the issue to the Faculty Council does not have a voting right in that particular case. 15
16 In its deliberations, the Faculty Council may seek input from various sources. This includes other members of IEDC administration, members of the faculty, staff, and current EMBA students. Members of the Faculty Council may make decisions and give opinions also through correspondence meetings in writing in the event that it is not possible to ensure joint decision-making at a Faculty Council meeting or in the event that the convening of a meeting involves disproportionate costs. In the event of decision-making conducted in writing, the Chair is obliged to ensure that all members of the Faculty Council have been sufficiently informed in advance on the issue in question. Appeals of Academic Decisions Article 36 In case of all Faculty Council decisions, the Faculty Council will notify the student about the decision and the reasons for it in written form either by registered mail or by an e- mail with confirmation from the student that the was received. The student has the right to appeal a Faculty Council decision to the Postgraduate Studies and Quality Commission within 7 days of receiving the mail with the Faculty Council decision and confirming it during the call from an IEDC official. Appeals to the Postgraduate and Studies Commission are restricted to considerations related to improper processes in Faculty Council deliberations and/or the emergence of additional relevant information that the Faculty Council was not aware of when making its decision. The Postgraduate Studies Commission must review the appeal and accept or reject it within 15 days after it is filed. All Faculty Council decisions come into force 8 days after the decision of the Faculty Council in case of no appeal, or on the day of the Postgraduate Studies Commission decision, in case that the appeal was rejected. Rulings by the Postgraduate Studies Commission in the matter of appeals of the decisions of the Faculty Council are final and not subject to further appeal. All parties will be informed in writing on the decision of the Postgraduate Studies Commission. VIII. Privacy in Academic Matters Article 37 IEDC holds that matters of a student s academic evaluation and academic standing must be treated as a private matter between IEDC and the student. (i) (ii) In the normal course of IEDC operations, a student s academic evaluation and academic standing may be discussed and reviewed internally by members of the administration, faculty, staff of IEDC, and Faculty Council without the student present. No representative of IEDC (administration, faculty, and staff) will discuss a student s academic evaluation and academic standing with any external party (e.g., employers, family members) including other students. 16
17 (iii) If a student wishes to discuss his or her academic evaluation and academic standing with a representative of IEDC then he or she is free to bring counsel to that meeting. The presence of counsel at such a meeting is limited to face-to-face meetings only. A representative of IEDC will send no discussion of a student s academic evaluation and academic standing in electronic format to counsel or third parties unless required by law. These regulations shall enter into force on the date of adoption Adopted by the IEDC Senate on September 16,
Pursuant to the Higher Education Act (Official Gazette of the RS, no. 67/1993 and amendments) and the Statute of the IEDC Bled School of Management, Postgraduate Studies, (Official Gazette of the RS, no.
