Teaching methods

This course is based on a group-learning methodology, which requires cooperation among students and individual commitment. The aim of this course is to improve students’ cognitive abilities, critical evaluation of the given task and ability to work with others.
During the course attendee students will engage into discussions with their peers and the instructors based on the contents of the course. This practice will allow students to learn the most innovative management techniques and issues related to the topics exposed in the syllabus.
In addition, the attendee students will discuss several case studies. Finally the instructors will create working teams to facilitate interaction among students and to develop students’ ability to work in groups.

Assessment and Evaluation

For attendee students the grade will entirely be composed by the individual and group assignments (averagely one per each class session). Each assignment will have a different weight from 0 to 100 and students will receive a grade from 0 to 30 for each assignment. The final grade will be a weighted average of assignment grades. Students can accept or refuse the exam grades. In case or refusal, students will have to pass an exam as non-attendee students.
For non-attendee the exam will be written and based on course texts. The exam will be composed by 3 open-ended questions (from 0 to 30 points).
