Each part of this assignment is an individual assignment. All submissions are required
to be your own words and calculations. While it is recognized that students may discuss
concepts and ideas each student is required to construct their own response. In the event
that the responses prepared by individual students appear to be the same or highly similar
the instructor will consider referring the students to the Faculty of Management
Academic Integrity Committee for consideration.
- Plagiarism refers to the practice of presenting the words of another author (it may
be a text writer or another student) as your own. This is not permitted. At times
you will be asked to learn about and discuss the views or theories of others. This
should be done with appropriate acknowledgement of source materials. In other
words, you must reference your work. Acknowledge your sources – both direct
and indirect quotes – with in-text citations. Refer to the Referencing section
contained below for further information.
