First of all, it is very very important that you read the Syllabus. If you don't believe me, take it from Snoop Dogg.
After you have read the syllabus (please do), you can register for the course. As a HEC student, please register for the course on Moodle. As a remote exchange student, please apply through remoteexchangestudent.org.

It's always better to ask questions in class such that everybody can learn from your question and my answer.
But you can of course also contact me via email. Here are some tips on email etiquette.
