Program course load is measured in credit hours. Each credit hour represents one weekly class hour. Thus a three-credit class equals three hours of classroom time per week. Preparation time of between one to one-and-a-half hours for each credit hour is assumed.
Students must attend all courses for which they are registered. If illness prevents them from attending class, they should notify the academic department and make arrangements to complete missed assignments.
A medical certificate must be presented to the academic dean for absences longer than three days. Anyone who stops attending a course without notifying the university or officially withdrawing will receive a failing grade.
Two or more unexcused absences may lead to a course grade reduction.
In order to receive their bachelor’s degree, students must complete the program with a minimum 2.0 grade point average. In addition, students at EU Business School must present and defend a dissertation as well as two final case studies (one marketing case and one related to the student’s major).
In order to receive their MBA or master's degree, students must complete each term, and the overall program, with a minimum 3.0 grade point average. In addition, students at EU Business School must present and defend a final dissertation project related to their specialization.
EU awards the following academic honors:
cum laude for a cumulative GPA of 3.20-3.49;
magna cum laude for a cumulative GPA of 3.50-3.79;
summa cum laude for a cumulative GPA of 3.8 or above.
Graduation with academic honors represents outstanding work within the requirements of a given major or specialization and significant effort in addition to those minimum requirements. Excellence in these areas is measured by overall GPA, performance in designated gateway courses within a major and completion of a dissertation.
Academic honesty is a fundamental value in education. EU Business School enforces a strict academic ethics code to which all students must adhere. Academic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to: plagiarism, attempted theft of academic records or examinations and alteration of grades. Any of these offenses will result in automatic failure of the course and/or expulsion from EU.
