Information Sharing and Plagiarism
One of the best ways to learn is by discussing and sharing ideas with others. This isespecially true in many areas of business and finance where there are no simple, absolute“right” and “wrong” answers. Such discussion is strongly encouraged. However, unless itis clearly intended as a group project,
any work submitted by you, whether in case studies, exams or papers, must be your own
