1. The student should petition in writing using a standardized petition form (available on the COB website: /advising ) indicating what the student would like to happen. Attach a letter of explanation and accompanying supporting documentation as needed. The form includes instructions and what documentation is required for each type of petition. The petition and supporting documentation should be submitted to the Office of Student Academic Services. They will be reviewed by the Student Academic Services Director/Assistant Director.
2. Petitions that deal with events in a given semester must be submitted by the end of the subsequent semester, excluding summer terms. For example, petitions for events occurring in a fall semester are to be submitted by the end of the spring semester; petitions for events occurring in a spring or summer semester are to be submitted by the end of the following fall semester. Petitions submitted after a term has ended will be denied if the student completed all work for the course.
3. T he Student Academic Services D irector/Assistant Director will approve or deny the petition within 10 business days. For each decision, a memo of explanation will be written.
4. If a petition is denied and the student wishes to appeal, he/she must do so in writing within 30 days of receipt of the petition denial memo. The student should submit an appeal letter and provide reasons for the appeal. A College committee will review the student's documentation and the director/assistant director's memo and uphold or overturn the decision of the director/assistant director within 30 days of the submission of the appeal. The committee usually meets at least twice per semester.
The committee will consist of the assistant or associate dean or a designee, a faculty member and one student. The faculty member will serve on a rotating basis for one semester. The decision of the committee is final. There are no higher levels of appeal within FAU.
Samsung charges high prices for their products due to the semiconductor technology integrated in their high quality products. This makes it hard for the company to target middle and low class people who form a larger portion of the consumer market. This forces the company to expand the target, which is only achievable in 2014. The weakness presents less or minimal effects to customers since the product quality is unsurpassed and to the consumer, concerned with quality than price the effect are none. However, financial conscious customers will compare the prices with others and resort to cheaper alternatives (Ferrell & Hartline, 2010).
The airline industry is responsible for the transportation of people, goods and post around the globe (cp. Netzer 1999, p. 18). It is affected by many factors, including war, economic business cycle, and business competition (cp. Wang 2004, p. 455) as well as its traditionally high level of regulation (cp. Vaara/Kleymann/Seristoe 2004, p. 11). It has been characterised as being an extremely competitive, safety-sensitive, service industry  (cp. Appelbaum/Fewster 2002, p. 66). These three characteristics of the industry have a large impact on HRM, as will be explained in subsequent paragraphs.
