EXAMS

EXAM DESCRIPTION

The examination is oral, held in person and only during official exam sessions.

 

The oral examination consists of the students' discussion of a project, which they must realise and submit to all lecturers (via e-mail) at least 5 days before the examination session. The discussion, which may include all the topics of the course, aims to verify the learners' acquisition of the project management skills covered in the course.

Only for the law lectures, the lecturer prepares an optional, multiple-choice written test during the last lecture, which may exempt the person concerned from the corresponding part of the syllabus in the oral examination.

ASSESSMENT METHODS

The examination aims to test whether the students are able to identify, understand and solve problems, risks and solutions in International Project Management settings, as well as independently develop solutions to possible problems in a multidisciplinary perspective.
