Lessons start in the first semester on September 19, 2022.
The final exam is a written exam to assess the student’s theoretical and practical learning. It is the same assessment both for attending and non-attending students. The final exam is a mix of practical and theoretical questions in the form of exercises, open questions and multiple-choice questions.
Those students who pass the exam with at least a mark of 25/30 can voluntarily ask for an oral exam within the same exam session, to integrate the score obtained from the written exam.
In the winter and summer exam period, whether the written exam score is highly insufficient, the student can sit at the exam again only by missing the session immediately following the session that was highly insufficient.
During the semester when the course is taught, the final exam can be replaced – if offered by the course coordinator – by in-course assessments. The dates, modes and contents of these in-course assessments will be communicated via AulaWeb during the semester. Those students who pass the in-course assessments with at least an overall mark of 25/30 can voluntarily ask for an oral exam to be undertaken within the first exam official session. The students who did not take or did not pass the in-course assessments, are free to undertake the full written exam in the official exam sessions.
More details on the exams will be communicated to the students at the beginning of the semester via AulaWeb and during the first lecture. In consideration of the COVID-19 emergency situation, any change to the exams will be communicated immediately to the students via AulaWeb and in the lectures.
The exam aims at verifying that the student is capable to effectively explain the nature of the business and its dynamics, and to apply theoretical concepts to solve problems regarding the preservation of the economic and financial stability of the businesses.
