LEARNING ENVIRONMENT AND CONCERT RULES
To engender a classroom experience most conducive for
learning, the following norms are expected in the Wharton
MBA classroom. We affectionately refer to these guidelines as
â€œConcert Rules,â€ alluding to the environment one ordinarily
finds at an orchestral performance. By labeling them as such,
they become an intuitively understood set of expectations.
â€¢	 	Class	starts	and	ends	exactly	on	time.	Students	and	faculty
are expected to be prompt.
â€¢	 Students	sit	according	to	a	seating	chart.
â€¢	 	Students	remain	in	attendance	for	the	duration	of	class,	ex-
cept in an emergency.
â€¢	 	Students	display	name	tents.
â€¢	 	All	phones	and	electronic	devices	are	turned	off.
To get the most out of your MBA experience, preparing for
and attending classes are the most important steps you will
take. Doing so allows you to engage your classmates and pro-
fessors, advance your studies, and position yourself as a knowl-
edgeable, thoughtful colleague. It is with these goals in mind
that we invite you to participate actively in our â€œconcert.â€
