GRADING POLICY FOR MS ECONOMICS PROGRAM

Guidelines for Grading and Academic Standing

  1. The Krannert Faculty follows the +/- grading policy established by the University and strongly recommends that teachers in the master’s programs assign grades using pluses and minuses.

  2. Grading will be determined by the instructor in each designated course. No set curve will be established. Grading expectations should be clearly laid out in the course syllabus.

  3. Students that earn an “F” grade in a course are dismissed from the program. Dismissed students have the opportunity to submit a petition (asking for readmission to the program) addressed to the Academic Director.

  4. In order to be able to graduate, a student must obtain at least a 3.0 Cumulative GPA at the time of graduation. Students who fall below a 3.0 have the opportunity to submit a petition to the MS Economics Academic Director asking for graduation approval.

 

Academic Honors

  • Students who are in the top 5% of their graduating class will be designated Krannert Scholars.

  • Students who are in the top 20% of their graduating class will be invited to join Beta Gamma Sigma, the national business honor society.
