Summary

The course structure will consist of a total of 12 Modules organized into four separate Installments (A, B, C and D) of three Modules each. In general, it is expected that the student will complete each module weekly, beginning with Week 4 or soon thereafter, although there is no requirement to do so on a weekly schedule. However, in order to proceed to a subsequent Installment, the student should complete reading the materials in the three Modules in the preceding Installment. For example, before moving to Installment B (Modules 4, 5 and 6), the student should complete Installment A (Modules 1, 2 and 3). Case analyses for the cases associated with each module are due no later than the Tuesday of the following week, e.g., the Case analysis for Week 4 is doe no later than Tuesday of Week 5.
