Bidding Instructions:

See MySloan for full Bidding Instructions. Note that the bid system will allow you to bid on workshops with conflicting schedules.

 

First Year MBAs:

1.    You have 1000 bid points to spend on the following in Round I:

a.    One (1) unit of Ethics - two (2) workshops, each 0.5 units

b.    One (1) unit of Leadership - one workshop of 1.0 unit or two workshops of 0.5 units each.

2.    If you do not get your first choice in Round I, you will be refunded the point you did not win a seat for another chance to bid in Round II. Then, you will be able to add open workshops during the Add/Drop Round (no points necessary). The add/drop round is time sensitive!

3.    If there are more bids than seats available, enrollment will be determined by the number of points bid.

 

Second Year MBAs:

1.    You have 1 bid point to select your preferred SIP Stream in Round I.

a.    If you do not get your first choice in Round I, you will be refunded your 1 point for another chance to bid in Round II. Then you will be able to add open workshops during the Add/Drop Round (no points necessary). The add/drop round is time sensitive!

2.    If there are more bids than seats available, enrollment will be determined by random lottery.


Rules and Regulations:

1.    Students must use the bid system to modify their schedule if unable to attend so another student can take the seat, especially if the capacity is 20 or fewer.

2.    Waitlists will not be part of the SIP bidding process due to the brevity of the workshops.

3.    You will not receive partial credit for any workshops partially attended. Students are expected to attend workshops in their entirety in order to gain credit for the course. This includes workshops that meet over multiple days.

4.    Students may not complete the same SIP workshop twice and receive credit for both.

5.    See a full list of Rules and Regulations here.
