LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT For more than 20 years, the Manhattan institute of Management has transformed lives by challenging students to uncover their full potential and to apply what they learn in daily life. As a management institution that encompasses post-professional education, the Institute strives to instill a passion for learning, set standards for excellence, and promote a commitment to serving the community. With students born in more than 20 countries, the Institute draws on the richness of the Manhattan region’s international character. Students here come from all walks of life – the young and the not-so-young, those just out of college, and those busy with jobs and family. To help meet the needs of our students, MIM offers flexible class schedules that include weekend and evening sessions. Individual attention has always been a cornerstone of the Manhattan Institute of Management education. Because our classes are small – the average class has 15 students – students receive one-on-one attention from their professors. Although the web site can offer you a virtual glimpse of what MIM is like, I encourage you to visit our campus and experience this exciting and vibrant community firsthand. If you are a MIM alumna or alumnus, welcome home! We cherish our relationship with you and are proud of the many ways you enrich our community. Sincerely,

Joseph Ohayon

In the past 20 years, over 5,000 students from almost every country in the world have stepped through the gates of MIM's downtown Manhattan campus. The campus is located in the heart of Wall Street, where students encounter an academic atmosphere that encompasses the opportunities of the financial district and a challenging curriculum.

STATEMENT OF SHARED VALUES We, the members of the Manhattan Institute of Management Community, take pride in ourselves and in our Institution. To that end, we are committed to upholding the highest standards of ethics, integrity, and professionalism in all that we do. We recognize that excellence in teaching and learning flourishes in an environment where each of us is free to express our ideas in ways that recognize and respect our differences. We are committed to celebrating the rich diversity of all members of the campus community and the community at large. Therefore, in an effort to attract and retain exceptional students, faculty, staff, and administrators who will continue the wonderful tradition of the Institute, we actively support behavior that is consistent with the values shared by the Manhattan Institute of Management community. Honesty The Institute promotes an intellectually stimulating environment where all interactions are open, honest, and free of bias and where the responsibility for all individuals is to be straightforward and trustworthy. Respect • For Person The Institute embraces the high diversity and culture of its faculty, staff, students, and administrators, including but not limited to their race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, ability, and socioeconomic status. • For Property The Institute seeks to provide an environment that is safe, one in which individual and institutional property are respected and protected. The Institute also values the integrity of intellectual work that is creative, resourceful, and innovative and, therefore, enforces strict policies against plagiarism, cheating, and the misuse of traditionally published and/or Internet resources. 9

Commitment to Achieving Excellence The Institute encourages excellence in intellectual, personal, professional, and social development and an appreciation for spiritual wellness while fostering a commitment to excellence in teaching, learning, and all aspects of work.

EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY The Manhattan Institute of Management is dedicated to offering programs of instruction that resonate with 21st century business practices. The curriculum combines theory and practice. The programs focus on experiential learning that put students in a business environment, which is the core of practical learning. Experiential learning is further enhanced through the In-Company Training Program. This program involves a real, well-defined business problem or issue in a particular area of study. The topic of analysis may be a clean-tech company, a government, a not-for-profit organization, the clean energy industry, or another pertinent topic. The project enables student team members to apply what they have learned to a real business problem or opportunity. It enables students to gain practical business exposure and to hone their skills in teamwork, intelligence gathering and analysis, and presenting and selling their ideas. Since students are MIM’s priority, we endeavor to ensure that they achieve their full academic potential. MIM strives to create a friendly atmosphere with a high level of personal attention from faculty and staff.

FACULTY MIM has highly credentialed instructors ranging from PhDs, DBAs, JDs, MBAs, MAs and MSs. They have industry and/or professional experience that enhance their academic credentials. Our faculty is dedicated to the development of students so that they may achieve their full academic potential and are prepared to enter the business world. The faculty tailors their teaching styles to fit the needs of the students and offers individual attention to those in need.

instructor/lecturers and the Academic Director. They are the first contact to solve any academic question or issue.

Tutor (Business Plan, Action Plan or Research Project) The Tutor is the faculty member responsible for providing students with support and orientation to carry out the Research Project, the Business Plan, or the Action Plan required in MIM Management Programs. Tutors follow-up with students on their papers to guarantee coherence according to expected aims.

Student Representatives Students play an essential role concerning the appropriate development of courses. Their opinions contribute to the continuous improvement of MIM programs. The Institute recommends that all the groups choose a representative who will inform faculty and management about students’ opinions. The student representative is elected by students themselves and is entitled to attend several management meetings. Student representatives serve as a link between the group and the departments that make up the MIM academic organization.

UNIT OF ACADEMIC MEASUREMENT The Manhattan Institute of Management uses clock hours as its unit of academic measurement. A clock hour is defined as a minimum of 50 minutes of supervised or directed instruction and appropriate break(s).

DISTANCE EDUCATION/ONLINE COURSES Students enrolled in online courses are required to complete an orientation session that will acquaint the students with the online delivery system. Students will receive necessary passwords for course and online library access, be exposed to threaded discussions, chats, online technical help desk, online instructor support, and uploading and downloading procedures, to name several procedures. Online students can access the courses 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from any computer with an Internet connection. Deadlines for assignments, tests, etc., are in Eastern Time. Online courses adhere to the same quarter calendar as campus-based courses. 23

Online Course Expectations Assignments and course requirements are listed in the course syllabus and/or posted on the course website and must be completed and submitted as outlined. Late assignments or submissions too close to an exam date can jeopardize a student’s ability to complete the course successfully. Students should commit approximately 10 to 15 hours per week for study and online work per course. Full-time students may take up to three online courses if approved by Academic Director. Students are expected to participate in discussions and interact with instructor and classmates according to the course schedule, complete assignments and tests in a timely fashion, and make effective use of MIM resources to overcome academic challenges. As an online learner, students have access to services that are specific to MIM's distance, regional, and open learning (DROL) resources. Students can access materials on or off campus as well as connect to the library from home. DROL library services provide a wealth of information to help in researching, accessing information, and completing studies. MIM’s online faculty and staff are focused on helping students reach their goals. Students are encouraged to make use of their help. Online and campus-based students are held to the same academic standards. Online Technology Requirements Window users must have • Pentium IV or higher microprocessor, or equivalent • Minimum 1 GB of RAM (memory) • Windows 2000 or XP or Windows 7 • Connection to the Internet Macintosh users must have • G4 or higher • Minimum 512 MB of RAM (memory) • Mac OS X or higher 24

ATTENDANCE AND LATENESS POLICY Students are expected to attend all classes. If a student misses one or more classes without a written excuse from a doctor (or any record of emergency), he/she will face the consequence of failing the course or having his/her grade seriously reduced. A minimum of 80% attendance is required. Poor attendance affects visa status for international students. Immigration laws oblige MIM to cancel a visa if the student is absent more than 20% of the time

ABSENTEEISM An Attendance Sheet Form is completed for every class. For international students, an absenteeism rate that jeopardizes the student’s ability to follow the coursework of a quarter will be communicated to the student’s school of origin immediately. If a student misses one or more classes without a written excuse from a doctor or other unjustified absence, he/she will face the consequence of failing the course or having his/her grade seriously reduced. All work missed MUST be made up and submitted during the following CLASS meeting.

LATENESS Students who come late to class twice will be marked absent. A student is considered late if he/she arrives more than 15 minutes after the class start. Two latenesses equal one absence. For example, a student who comes to class more than 15 minutes late for the first time will be marked late, but the second lateness will be considered an absence. If a student is fifteen (15) minutes late to class during midterms and final exams, the student will be considered absent; the student will not be allowed in the class. No late student will be allowed to take midterm and final exams, in which case the student is likely to fail. Any unjustified absence at an exam will result in a grade of “F”.

MAKE-UP WORK If a student misses a class or classes, excused or unexcused, he/she is fully responsible for completing all the reading, homework, and assignments announced in that class.

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY FOR ALL STUDENTS Since students come to build academic skills, it is mandated that all students abide by the highest standards of academic honesty and prerequisites for, and presentation of, examinations, term papers, and research projects. Plagiarism is defined as using another’s ideas and words without clearly acknowledging the source of that information. Incorporating another’s ideas into one’s own writing without indicating the proper citation exemplifies plagiarism (Writing Tutorial Services, Indiana University, and Bloomington, IN). Plagiarism is considered a form of academic dishonesty and, as such, all students have to abide by the highest standards set forth by M.I.M. Any student who is found to have plagiarized his or her assignments, research project, or term papers receive NO credit for the plagiarized work, and could be subjected to disciplinary procedures imposed by MIM.

TRANSFER OF CREDIT The Manhattan Institute of Management does not provide assurance of transferability of credits earned. The receiving institution has the discretion to accept transfer credits.

IN-COMPANY TRAINING PROGRAM The In-Company Training Program involves analyzing a company, government, notfor-profit organization, or an industry. The project enables student team members to apply what they have learned through the program to a real business problem or opportunity. It will enable students to gain practical business exposure and to hone their skills in teamwork, intelligence gathering, and analysis, presenting and selling their ideas. 29

The student may help to choose a company that participates in the MIM In-Company Training Program to study the company or a particular function/department of the company as a project and/or case study, although the ICTP Coordinator for the most part identifies a company of interest for students. ICTP does not require reimbursement of expenses and/or compensation from the firm.

CREDIT FOR PREVIOUS EDUCATION MIM does not grant credit for previous coursework taken at other institutions. However, such previous coursework may be considered for admission purposes, such as an Associate or Bachelor Degree for specified programs.

DROP/ADD PERIOD International students in F1/M-1 Status are required to maintain full-time enrollment during the school year. If a student does not meet this requirement, the student must complete a drop class request. The Academic Director will deliver a final decision in 24 hours. Please note that Federal regulations severely limit a student’s ability to parttime enrollment. If a student drops below full time without authorization, the International Student Advisor is required to report this to immigration via the SEVIS system, and the student will be out of status. International students can ADD a full program period to their studies provided all admission requirements are fulfilled. The drop course policy follows the refund policy. The courses can be dropped within 7 days of signing the enrollment agreement. The effective drop date is the business day the drop request is received. It is the student’s responsibility to verify that the drop or withdrawal has been processed properly. Non-attendance does not constitute a drop. Online non-credit courses follow the open entry deadlines.

WITHDRAWAL POLICY To officially withdraw, students must • •

Complete the Withdrawal Permission form. (Available from MIM office.) Upon completion of the form, return to it to the MIM Office.

When a student officially withdraws from all courses (Fall or Spring), any refund of tuition will be governed by the refund policy described in the enrollment agreement. 30

ACADEMIC WARNING, PROBATION AND DISMISSAL Academic Warning Any student who fails any exam in one quarter or who fails any course receives the statement "academic warning" on the respective quarter academic record. Academic Probation Any student who fails to maintain a cumulative GPA of 1.5 is placed on academic probation. The statement, "academic probation," is placed on the student's academic record. A student on academic probation is required to consult with a faculty advisor or counselor and may be required to take less than the normal academic load in the next quarter of attendance. Students are placed on probation only after they have attempted two quarters or 210 hours. Academic Suspension Any student on academic probation who fails to attain a GPA of 1.5 for the next quarter in attendance is subject to academic suspension. Academic suspension normally lasts one quarter unless the student reapplies and is accepted for readmission to another curriculum of the Institute. The statement "academic suspension" is placed on the student's academic record. A student who has been informed of the academic suspension may submit an appeal in writing to the Academic Director for reconsideration. Suspended students may be readmitted after the suspension period by submitting a written request for readmission. Students are placed on suspension only after they have attempted 300 hours. A student who is reinstated to the Institute after having been academically suspended must achieve a quarter GPA of 2.0 or better for the quarter of reinstatement or be academically dismissed. Academic Dismissal A student on academic suspension who does not maintain at least a 2.0 GPA for the quarter of reinstatement will be academically dismissed. A student on academic suspension who achieves a 2.0 GPA for the quarter of reinstatement must maintain at least a 1.5 GPA in each subsequent quarter of attendance. Academic dismissal 31

normally is permanent unless, with good cause, the student reapplies and is accepted under special consideration by the Admissions and Academic Directors. The statement "academic dismissal" is placed on the student's academic record.

LEAVE OF ABSENCE All leaves of absence must be requested in writing and are approved or disapproved in writing. A leave of absence is to be granted only in extenuating circumstances, such as an accident, prolonged illness, maternity leave, or the death of a relative. MIM is expected to explain the implications of a leave to the student. If the student fails to return on the agreed upon date, the student will be dismissed and a refund calculation performed. Experience has shown that most students do not return from a leave of absence. Some programs are too short to make a leave of absence practical. A retention evaluation upon return is to be performed when the leave extends beyond thirty (30) days. The School Director is expected to review the student’s request, preferably in person, with the student requesting the leave. Not all leave requests are granted. All leaves of absence must be requested in writing and are approved or disapproved in writing.

APPEAL OF ACADEMIC DISMISSAL OR A GRADE Students wishing to appeal a grade or academic dismissal must make the appeal in writing. It must be submitted to the Director within 10 calendar days of receiving notification of his/her grade or dismissal. The student must explain what led to the academic dismissal or grade and what plans the student has to eliminate or rectify the situation. The decision of the Director is final and may not be further appealed.

REINSTATEMENT POLICY Students who have been academically dismissed from the institute must provide a written petition for reinstatement which describes the expenditure of their time since leaving the institute and outlines reasons for believing that their previous record will be improved if they are reinstated. Such students are not eligible for reinstatement until after they have been away for at least one fall or spring quarter. Students reinstated after being dismissed for poor scholarship are reinstated on final academic probation 32

and must establish a cumulative GPA of at least 2.00 for all hours taken at this institute by the end of the quarter.

NOTIFICATION RIGHTS UNDER FERPA WITH RESPECT TO STUDENT RECORDS The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their educational records. 1. Students enrolled at the Manhattan Institute of Management shall have the right to inspect and review the contents of their education records, within 45 days of the day the institution receives the request for access. Students may request to review their education records by submitting a written request indentifying the record(s) the student wishes to review to the Registrar. The institution will arrange for access and notify the student of the time and place where the records may be inspected. 2. Parental access to a student’s record will be allowed by the Manhattan Institute of Management without prior consent if: (1) the student has violated a law or the institution’s rules or policies governing alcohol or substance abuse, if the student is under 21 years old; or (2) the information is needed to protect the health or safety of the student or other individuals in an emergency. 3. A student’s education records are defined as files, materials, or documents, including those in electronic format, that contain information directly related to the student and are maintained by the institution, except as provided by law. Access to a student’s education records is afforded to school officials who have a legitimate educational interest in the records. A school official is defined as a person employed or engaged by the institution in an administrative, supervisory, academic or support staff position (including law enforcement unit and health staff); a person or company (including its employees) with whom the school has contracted (such as an attorney, auditor, consultant or collection agent); a trustee serving on a governing board; or a person assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks. A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record to fulfill his or her professional responsibility or commitment to the school. 4. Students may request that the institution amend any of their education records, if they believe the record contains information that is inaccurate, misleading or in violation of their privacy rights. The request for change must be made in writing and delivered to the Director, and must identify the part of the record the student wants changed and the reason for the requested change stated fully. 33

5. Directory information is student information that the institution may release to third parties without the consent of the student. The Manhattan Institute of Management has defined directory information as the student’s name, address(es), telephone number(s), e-mail address, birth date and place, program undertaken, dates of attendance, honors and awards, photographs and credential awarded. If a student does not want his or her directory information to be released to third parties without the student’s consent, the student must present such a request in writing to the Registrar within 45 days of the student’s enrollment or by such later date as the institution may specify. Under no circumstance may the student use the right to opt out to prevent the institution from disclosing that student’s name, electronic identifier, or institutional e-mail address in a class in which the student is enrolled. 6. The written consent of the student is required before personally identifiable information from education records of that student may be released to a third party, unless the disclosure is otherwise allowed under an express FERPA exception to disclosure or is required by law. 7. A student who believes that the Manhattan Institute of Management has violated his or her rights concerning the release of or access to his or her records has the right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education. The name and address of the office that administers FERPA is: Family Policy Compliance Office U.S. Department of Education 400 Maryland Avenue, SW Washington, DC 20202-5901

CAMPUS SECURITY The Manhattan Institute of Management makes every effort to provide a safe environment for its students. Because our facility is located in a business environment, entrants to the building are screened. However, if a crime is committed in the facility, MIM’s personnel are available to assist students. As required by the U.S. Department of Education, MIM publishes all known occurrences of crimes committed on campus. These statistics are available in the Director’s office and are also part of the orientation materials. If a crime is committed, a police report must be completed and filed. Students are required to report any and all occurrences of a crime to MIM’s personnel. If a sexual 34

assault occurs on campus, the victim and witnesses to the crime must report the incident to the MIM administration. The police will be contacted.

SEXUAL HARASSMENT Sexual harassment is defined as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature that tends to create a hostile or offensive work environment. Any student or employee of the Manhattan Institute of Management who is a victim of a sexual offense in the facility or an MIMrelated activity must report the incidence at once to the Director. An investigation will take place.

STUDENT SERVICES STUDENT ORIENTATION The Academic Coordinator and Academic Director provide a general orientation for both undergraduate and graduate students. Orientation seminars are offered at the beginning of both the Fall and Spring quarters. In all cases, these orientation times are organized to provide assistance with the adjustment process both academically and socially for new students on campus. A structure is provided by which new students can meet other students on campus, which, we believe, will aid in their transition. Also included in the orientation are social events designed to encourage students to feel connected to the MIM community.

LIBRARY Students will use Brooklyn College Library located at 25 Broadway, 7th floor, and also all the educational materials distributed by all instructors. Distance learning students have access to the Distance Regional Online Library (DROL) resources.

JOB PLACEMENT MIM does not provide formal placement assistance to students. Institute staff will, however, be happy to help individual students with a job search. Students have networking opportunities throughout the program with industry professionals and with each other.

TUITION REIMBURSEMENT FUND The Tuition Reimbursement Fund is designed to protect the financial interest of students attending schools licensed by the State Education Department. If a school closes while students are in attendance prior to the completion of their education program, then students may be eligible for a refund of all tuition expenses paid. If a student drops out of school prior to completion of the program and files a complaint against the school with the State Education Department, the student may be able to receive a refund if the State Education Department is able to provide factual support that the complaint is valid and determine that there was a violation of Education Law or Commissioner’s Regulations as specified in section 126.17 of the Commissioner’s Regulations. To file a claim to the Tuition Reimbursement Fund, a student must first file a complaint with the State Education Department at the address included in this catalog. The staff of the State Education Department will assist the student in the preparation of a tuition reimbursement form (a sample of this form is provided to you upon enrollment).

STUDENT ATTITUDE The Institute expects students to have a polite and respectful behavior towards other students, teaching staff, and non-teaching staff of the Institute as MIM believes in creating an environment of respect. Disrespectful attitudes will be evaluated and included in the student record according to the following classification: •

Minor offence: Any offence which is not considered significant or serious—for example, disturbing class, disrespectful attitude in class and in school.

Significant offence: Repeated minor offence will be considered a significant offence. This type of offence has an important consideration, especially when it is because of a forged signature.

Serious offence: The Institute will consider that a student has committed a serious offence if he/she does not respect MIM’s staff, regardless of being lecturers, other students, or staff at MIM; if he/she damages material or resources of MIM; or if he/she commits repeated minor offences. Serious offences include fraud and plagiarism regarding course work, exams, or internships. Repeated minor offences will be considered as a serious offence.

Under normal conditions and according to the criteria and the seriousness of the offence, the Academic Committee will decide proper measures to take upon any student who commits disciplinary offences. As a result, disciplinary measures range from a written warning that will be included in the student’s academic record to the expulsion of the student from the institute. The Academic Committee is authorized to consider a student’s behavior as serious whether the incident is reported by students/faculty/staff who have been involved in one of the situations mentioned above or at the request of any member of MIM faculty or staff. 41

DISRUPTING A CLASS Students disrupting the class will be asked to leave and will be considered absent. If a student is asked to leave a class because of disruptive behavior, such a dismissal will be considered as an unexcused absence. For international students, the Academic Director will contact the student’s home school or take an equally appropriate disciplinary measure.

DISMISSAL POLICY A student may be dismissed for any of the following reasons: • Failure to comply with the MIM conduct policy • Failure to comply with the MIM attendance/lateness policy • Failure to maintain satisfactory progress • Failure to meet all financial obligations to MIM • Violation of any of the conditions set forth in the enrollment agreement.

STUDENT IDs A Student ID is mandatory to access the campus. At the beginning of each program, students must present themselves at the administration office with a digital photo headshot and appropriate identification. International students may send a digital headshot to MIM. At the beginning of the program, they must present themselves at the administration office with a valid passport, a valid visa, and the I-20 form. The student ID is free. However, if it is lost, a $25.00 replacement fee will apply. NOTE: Access to campus will be denied without ID and will cause lateness to class, which will, in turn, jeopardize students’ attendance records and their ability to remain in the program.

NO SMOKING POLICY Smoking in the institution’s facility is strictly FORBIDDEN. Smoking in front of the building (25 Broadway), is strictly PROHIBITED. MIM reserves the right to charge a $25 for the first incident, $50 for the second, and $75 for the third, culminating in termination from the program.

STUDENT IMMUNIZATIONS New York State’s Immunization Policy, effective May 8, 2007, is as follows: Failure to show proof of compliance with these regulations may prevent a student from attending classes. By law, attending colleges and universities within New York requires students born on or after January 1, 1957, who wish to register and attend classes, must provide adequate evidence of two immunizations against measles, mumps and rubella. The College provides to each registering student information and literature related to New York State immunization requirements and deadlines for completing them. Students who have no proof will be granted 30 days from the 1st day of class to show proof of the 1st shot. Students who can demonstrate that they attended a primary or secondary school in the United States after 1980 will be credited for one set of measles only (mumps and rubella immunizations not included). Such students will be considered “in the process of receiving” the required immunizations and be allowed the extensions noted. Note: Students who fulfill their first measles dose with this method must still show proof of the mumps and rubella within the first 30 days of school. Students who have one (1) MMR will be considered “in the process of receiving” the required immunizations and will be given 10 weeks from the 1st day of class to provide proof of the second shot. Students who do not show proof of the first shot within the first 30 days of school will not be permitted to attend classes and will be administratively withdrawn. Students who later show proof of all immunizations may approach the Director for readmittance. 43

Students who do not show proof of the second shot within the first 10 weeks of school will not be permitted to attend classes and will be administratively withdrawn. Students who later show proof of all immunizations may approach the Dean for readmittance. According to Public Health Law Section 2164, you will not be allowed to attend school after this date: October 15, 2008, unless you provide documents showing that you have received the necessary immunizations. • • • • •

MMR MEASLES RUBELLA MUMPS MENINGOCOCCAL VACCINE OR DECLINATION STATEMENT (IF BORN AFTER 1990).

Please provide written documentation of the above checked vaccines on or before two weeks of the date of this letter. Failure to provide requested documentation will result in exclusion from school. If you have any questions, feel free to call ROBIN S. GROSS, Public Health Representative for the New York State Department of Health and Immigration Program at 212-417-4897. Students under a certain age attending college and universities are required by law within New York State to provide adequate evidence of two immunizations against measles/ mumps/and rubella. Exception to the state law requirement may be granted by a physician’s certificate or when religious beliefs prohibit immunization.

MIM CMGT100 Change Management 30 Clock Hours Organizations today operate in a world of accelerated change. The social, political, economic, and global environments are now more fast-paced, information-driven, and dynamic. This calls for organizations to demonstrate greater capacity for being both “proactive”, and responsive to their environments. Change is NOT extraordinary. It is now the norm. Change is not one “destination”, but is instead a process, a series of destinations that lead to new destinations. Change can be a positive force, promoting creativity, diversity, learning, and growth. Managing change effectively can be an important factor in ensuring the vitality of an organization. Conversely, change can be an upsetting and threatening force within an organization which is disruptive to its functioning. Even positive change often has negative effects that must be anticipated and addressed if the new strategies are to be effective. Change is a dangerous mix of opportunity and risk. The goal of this course is to help students increase the opportunity and minimize the risk and unintended consequences of change. Course Objectives Upon the successful completion of this course, students should be able to • Assess holistically organizational context and readiness for change. • Apply key strategies to plan, implement, and evaluate organizational change, such as leadership, assessing and increasing readiness, dealing with resistance, and collaborative planning.
