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 1 open question to be answered in a dedicated space. This question is aimed at assessing the knowledge of 5 basic notions of the discipline as well as the ability to effectively use the company language. The punctual and complete knowledge of all 5 basic notions is required to be admitted to the assessment of the second part of the written test.
The second part is aimed at assessing the key categories and the fundamental applicative tools of the discipline. It includes 4 open questions to be answered in a dedicated space and 1 exercise about economic convenience. The questions are aimed at assessing the general vision of the discipline, the deepening of the topics and applying the concepts to business management.
To pass the written test and access the oral examination, the minimum score is 18/30.

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.

Students are advised to take the Business Management teaching and examination after having acquired the specific skills of the Business administration teaching.

Given that the teaching of Business Management is a basic course, very rich in concepts and basic exercises, this teaching is not recommended for Erasmus students.

------- 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 15th to 18th 2019, 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 2019), if the score is at least 18/30ths.
