Block A: 1 February 30 March Block B: 1 April 27 May Block C: 28 May 24 June Block D: 25 June 30 July Online electives are split into two ten-week blocks: Online Electives Block 1 will run from 6 February to 14 April Online electives Block 2 will run from 29 May to 4 August Format Face-to-face electives run over four days (a total of 24 contact hours) and are offered in two formats: weekday and weekend format. We aim to create the schedule so it does not create clashes between weekend and weekday electives permitting you to take both formats and maximise your time on campus. Weekday Electives Typically attendance is on a Monday, Tuesday (week 1), then the following Thursday, and Friday (week 2). Weekend Electives

4 Attendance is on Thursday afternoon, all day Friday, all day Saturday and Sunday morning. Online Electives You have the opportunity to take Global MBA electives, delivered completely online. The online electives run in two ten-week blocks. Ten Sessions Over Ten Weeks Each elective is delivered over ten weeks, and consists of ten separate sessions, each comprising of a number of different learning activities, all within the Hub. We would recommend that students undertake one session per week for each elective during the ten week block in order to manage their time effectively. Learning Environment The online electives use a variety of interactive learning activities including video content, open discussions, polls, word clouds, quizzes, image shares, and other individual and group activity submissions and exercises. You are expected to contribute to all the learning activities (you will note that some of these make up part of the assessment of the elective). The more you engage and contribute, the richer the learning experience will be for you and your classmates - as with any oncampus class, your different backgrounds and experiences add depth to the discussions and exercises. The elective activities contain rich media content so we would recommend that you use a good broadband internet connection. Reading Materials Essential reading materials including case studies, journal and newspaper articles, and book chapters are provided on the Hub. Some elective teachers suggest you purchase an essential textbook alongside this. The reading materials and video content are all downloadable so you can view them offline. Online Lectures Alongside the materials and activities on the Hub, each elective will have a number of live sessions (delivered using Adobe Connect software) with the module leader, and support sessions with the Teaching Assistant. The live classes are designed to give students the opportunity to discuss the module material and exchange ideas. In some live sessions, students may be asked to present as part of the learning activities or assessment. Each live session is delivered twice (for those in different time zones) and recordings are made available afterwards. Time Commitment You should expect to devote a minimum of 5 hours of study per week, per elective. This time is expected to cover all essential activities and materials, and is an average - you may find you need to spend longer on some activities than others, depending on your confidence with the material, your learning style, and how quickly you grasp the concepts. Choosing Electives In addition to the elective module outlines on this platform you will find video introductions and lecture captures from a number of elective faculty describing their electives and the topics covered. It is important that students review the elective learning objectives when selecting the appropriate module. The main resources available to you are; Elective Module Outlines via the Elective Platform Elective video introductions from faculty via the Elective Platform Connect with past cohorts for informal feedback. Speak to the Career Services or Programme teams for guidance. Pre-Requisites

5 To be eligible for the Finance electives, Executive MBA and Weekend MBA students will be required to take the Finance Workshop by Gilles Chemla running 17 & 18 February This workshop is only running once, so you are required to take this if intending to take any finance electives and particular Advanced Corporate Finance. Additional workshops are available for Excel (22 February 2017) and Valuation (8 March 2017). These are optional practical workshops designed to prepare you for finance electives. Workshop Attendance Date Cohorts Finance Mandatory 17 & 18 February 2017 Weekend MBA and Executive MBA Excel Optional 22 February 2017 Weekend MBA and Executive MBA Valuation Optional 8 March 2017 All MBA programmes Elective Assessment Electives are assessed through 100% coursework only. The assessment for coursework can be individual or group or both and can be made up of a number of assessment components such as quizzes, assignments, presentations and class participation. At least 50% of the assessment will be made up of individual work. Usually there will be a three week deadline for submission of coursework after the elective has finished. Class Participation Class participation can be measured in a number of ways; recorded by a TA, peer assessment etc. Where class participation is required, a description of how it will be assessed will be available in the module outline. Fixed Seating Some electives will have fixed seating arrangements which may be used as an aid to award class participation marks. Students should inform their programme coordinator if they require special arrangements for fixed seating. Submission All assignments should be submitted via the Hub. Cancelled Electives A minimum of 15 students need to be enrolled on an elective in order for it to run. If fewer than 15 students choose a particular elective, it is at the discretion of the MBA Suite Programme Directors if it will go ahead or not. If you choose an elective that does not have enough subscribers, you will be asked to choose an alternative elective. Class Composition During the elective cycle, you will take electives with the Executive MBA, Weekend MBA, Full Time MBA and Global Online MBA Cohorts. This will give you the opportunity to network with even more high calibre MBA students outside your own cohort. A class list will be available via the hub for each elective, to help facilitate your networking. Another advantage of doing your electives with the other MBA programmes is that the more niche electives are more likely to run as there is a greater pool of students potentially selecting them. MBA alumni are invited to attend electives as part of their lifelong learning offering, so you may also take classes with former students, providing another networking opportunity.

6 In addition, there may be exchange students from other Universities, or prospective MBA candidates who are sampling the teaching and learning environment on offer at Imperial College Business School. Hub Layout The Hub page is set up in the following way across all electives: Newsfeed An initial welcome message will be posted by the electives team followed by any messages from faculty, teaching assistants or the team. Check this regularly. Overview This is where we post the key information about the elective such as learning outcomes, structure, pre-reading etc. We will also publish the module outline on this page. Materials This is broken down by days for each elective, please see below. Each day will be further broken down by session and we will post related readings/materials on these pages for each session/day. Assessment Information about the elective assessment will be held here. Assessment submissions are also on this page. Lectures Recordings of your lecture can be viewed here. Classlist- You can view and download a classlist for the elective here. Help This is where students can post questions/topics they would like to discuss with the class. Elective Committee The Elective Committee is comprised of Programme Coordinators and Managers who look after the MBA cohorts. They build the elective portfolio, manage the sign up process, and are decision makers for elective changes at late notice. The Elective Committee meet on a weekly basis. The MBA Electives team are responsible for the planning and delivery of the elective portfolio for all MBA students. They work with many stakeholders across the Business School to design and develop the portfolio. Part of the delivery of the portfolio involves managing the elective platform that hosts elective information, briefing the students about electives as well as managing individual Hub pages across all the electives. The team also manages grading for all electives.

8 Policies Elective Credits The number of elective credits that you can take depends on your programme: Programme Number of ECTS Format Electives FTMBA 6 Online & Face to Face WMBA 6 28 (includes GEW) Online & Face to Face GMBA 5 20 Online & Face to Face EMBA 6 28 (includes GIW) Online & Face to Face Attendance For all electives, you must complete all assessments to be awarded credit for the module. For oncampus electives, you must attend at least three days of an elective to meet the requirements for completing an elective. Pre-Requisites You are required to complete and pass the pre-requisite module before taking the electives they are a pre-requisite to. Grading We aim to return grades and feedback to you within six weeks of the final marked component. You will be able to contact the faculty or TA directly to obtain additional feedback on their grade. For grade appeals, please refer to your Academic Handbook. Late Submissions If you do not submit a piece of assessment in time (without mitigating circumstance), you will receive the following penalties: Within 1 week - will be penalised 5% of marks for that assessment. Beyond 1 week - Assessment submission over a week will receive 50% penalty. Late work which is submitted after all other coursework has been marked and returned to fellow students will receive a zero. Failing an Elective You may receive a failing grade on an elective on academic grounds (poor quality assignments), or failing to attend the minimum 75% of the elective. For the latter, you will be able to sign up for an alternative elective but your overall module grade will be capped at C. The Elective Committee can consider grounds for mitigating circumstances for fails based on nonattendance to revoke the fail from your transcript and permit attendance at an alternative elective. Please follow the mitigating circumstances procedure below. Add/Drop Policy There is some flexibility to change your electives after the main elective sign up. Add/drop periods are as listed in the key deadlines section and also below: Block A: you can make a request to change your electives from 12pm on 4th January to 12pm on 11th January 2017 Block B: you can make a request to change your electives from 12pm on 27th January to 12pm on 3rd February 2017

9 Block C: you can make a request to change your electives from 12pm on 22nd March to 12pm on 29th March 2017 Block D: you can make a request to change your electives from 12pm on 10th May to 12pm on 17th May 2017 Requests to change electives that start less than four weeks before the elective will be considered by the Elective Committee. Requests for drops within 10 working days of an elective starting, i.e. at late notice, will be based on Mitigating Circumstances only, for example you cannot drop at late notice because the elective is no longer what they were expecting. It is your responsibility to inform study group members (as required) of your elective changes. Sit In Policy You can apply to take additional electives as a sit-in / not for credit. All students who would like to apply for sit-ins should sign the sit-in agreement. For pedagogic reasons, sit-in students can only make up a maximum of 25% of the class. If you are successful in your sit-in application, you will still have to do all the required reading, contribute fully to class discussions and attend all the lectures. However, you are not expected to do the coursework. Sit-ins are completely at the discretion of the elective lecturers and their decision is final. They do turn people away. It is not possible to appeal this decision, however students may view the elective on the Hub when access is granted. Any sit in students that do not conform to this expectation will be reported to the Programme Director. It is not possible, except for exceptional circumstances, to change a credited module to a sit-in after the module has started. Hub Access Students will get access to all electives on the Hub when the last elective has finished, usually 31 July.

10 Procedures Electives Mitigating Circumstances Procedure 1. Speak to your programme coordinator as the first point of contact to explain your situation. 2. If relevant, your programme coordinator will provide you a Mitigating Circumstances form to complete. 3. The Elective Committee will review your mitigating circumstances as a group and make a decision based on precedent and fairness across the programmes. The elective committee meets on a weekly basis, except during school closure. 4. Your programme coordinator will inform you of the outcome. Add/Drop Procedure If you would like to change your elective more than four weeks before the elective starts, you may do so on the Elective Platform within the set add/drop deadlines (with the exception of the online electives. To change an elective after the add/drop deadline has passed, please contact one of the Elective Committee members and explain your reason for switching. Once the elective change has been approved, please inform your study group that you are no longer taking part in the elective. Sit In Procedure 1. Apply for sit ins through the Elective Platform. Your application should explain why you would like to join the elective and what contributions the lecturer can expect from you during the module. 2. Submit your application along with your signed sit-in agreement. 3. Sit ins will be reviewed in four rounds corresponding to each Elective block. Reviews are made by the Elective team in conjunction with the lecturer. 4. You will be informed of your sit in result by approximately one week after the add/drop deadline.
