Oral examination with a short presentation of a case-study previously assigned and questions related both to the case-study and to the other topics of the course.
The oral examination is performed by two professors and it is about 45-minutes long. During the examination, the student answers to multiple-choice questions, orally explains subjects related to the content of the course and discusses a case-study previously assigned. In this way, the commission is able to evaluate if the learning outcomes have been achieved. If not, the student is asked to study more thoroughly and/or take benefit from further explanations by the teachers.
Oral lessons will be delivered in Italian language, but the slides are in English.
