Attendance Policy

Regular attendance in all MBA courses is mandatory, unless absence is unavoidably caused by illness or compassionate reasons. If this is the case, the student is expected to contact both the instructor and the MBA office in advance where possible; documentation may be required.

If a student misses more than 15% of a course, the student may not be allowed to write/submit the final examination for that course.

Participation in and exposure to class discussion is critical for mastery of the subject matter, to achieve the learning outcomes and maximize the learning environment.  As well, the Edwards MBA Program emphasizes the development of high standards of professional conduct. 


Punctual attendance is expected at all lectures, seminars, professional development sessions and scheduled activities of the MBA program.  It is recognized that a student may be unavoidably delayed on occasion; however, arriving late can be very disruptive to colleagues and faculty members.  It is at the faculty member's discretion how poor punctuality will be handled.
