The groups will be provided a scenario and background information from which each will be required to develop a formal written and oral presentation.

CMTE Certification Requirements

Testing First year students will be given a validated 100 question written exam on the last day. To advance to the second year program, students must achieve a score of at least 70%. Second year students will be evaluated on participation in case reviews and a group capstone project inclusive of written and oral presentations. Participants will receive two hours of class time each day to work on their capstone project but should expect that most of the preparation for the project will happen outside of class.

Attendance While we recognize the professional obligations of the participants, students will not graduate who have missed more than two didactic sessions in any year. Attendance is taken at the beginning of every class, and participants are expected to be on time and utilize breaks to make phone calls, text messages. Second year students’ attendance at all case review and capstone project sessions is mandatory. Business attire required. Students who fail to meet the above criteria will be allowed to audit the program but will not sit for the final exam, receive a refund or obtain certification.
