My common workload is reading approximately 100 to 150 pages per week across four courses. It is even more difficult when English is not your main language, and when you are reading at a lower pace. One class generally requires two individual papers, two team presentations, and one project. It can vary greatly depending on the teacher.
In a typical class, you have a midterm and a final, which covers the presentations as well as concepts seen in class. There are no trick questions or traps!
My recommendation is to follow the readings each week and to not fall behind. If you miss readings for 1 or 2 weeks, it will be pretty hard to catch up. If you can do all the readings successfully, you will have no problem passing classes with a B+. An A- will most likely require full attendance and intense participation.
Here is an example of my spring courses in my Master Innovation & Technology Program:
- Innovation Marketing Techniques
- Operations & New Ventures
- Innovation Process
- Business Law & Regulations
As you can see, it is a mix of Marketing, Entrepreneurship, and Innovation. I am very glad to have such interesting yet challenging classes.
