Measures to instill academic integrity (as submitted by school)

The EMBA program utilizes the Blackboard Learning Management System (LMS) for program delivery. Students must have been admitted to the University and registered via Banner before receiving credentials to access classes on Blackboard. Blackboard includes tools to allow online examinations/quizzes and provides a variety of tools to minimize the possibility of cheating. Additionally students are generally required to provide photographs and/or videos as part of their course introduction and graded components such as presentations generally require students to submit an archived video recording of their group and individual presentations.
