Examination Methods

The examination is both written and oral. It is possible to take the oral examination only if the evaluation of written exam is sufficient (≥ 18/30).

The written text aims to test student’s knowledge about syllabus arguments and capability to apply methods about economic convenience.
More precisely, the written test covers the various topics in the program and is divided into two parts. The first part includes five multiple choice quiz and five open questions to be answered in a dedicated space. These questions are aimed at assessing the knowledge of basic notions of the discipline as well as the ability to effectively use the company language.
The second part is aimed at assessing the key categories and the fundamental applicative tools of the discipline. It includes four open questions to be answered in a dedicated space and 1 exercise about economic convenience analysis. The questions are aimed at assessing the general vision of the discipline, the deepening of the topics and applying the concepts to business management.
The written test is passed with a minimum score of 18/30 as follows:
- 3 out of 5 points in the multiple choice quiz,
- 3 out of 5 points in carrying out an exercise on economic convenience analysis,
- 9 points out of 15 in the three questions on the general open-ended part in a dedicated space,
- 3 out of 5 points in the question about the customer shopping experience with open answers in a dedicated space.

The oral examination covers the program as a whole and, first of all, verifies the overcoming of any gaps that emerged from the written test. The oral examination is aimed at assessing the candidate’s critical analysis skills, as well as verifying the deepening of the topics.

The final assessment is expressed in 30ths and takes into account all the tests prepared for the purpose of assessing learning.




------- interim examination -------

In order to encourage the systematic and assiduous study of this teaching starting from the first day of lesson, in the week from April 12, 2021, an interim examination is organized. This test provides students with the opportunity to verify their level of learning in progress. For these reasons, the interim examination is optional.
The interim examination is written and in “partial voting” mode: this means that - if it is passed - substitutes the written test.
The interim examination is evaluated in 30th and is valid only in the summer session of examinations after the lessons (June-July 2021), if the score is at least 18/30ths.
Those who pass the interim examination access the final examination which is an oral examination.
The details about the programs of the interim and final examination are communicated at the beginning of the course and published in the e-learning section.
