Examination Methods

Students will be assessed differently according to their status as attending or non-attending students. Students who attend the course will be assessed through an intermediate and a final exam: 1. The intermediate exam consists in a group-work analyses of the structure, governance, and performance of a group of companies. The intermediate exam consists in the drafting of a report of around 10-15 pages (word or pdf), which is due towards the end of the course and shall be sent by e-mail, and a 3-slide presentation to be discussed in classroom (around 10 minutes per group). The group-work aims at assessing the capability acquired in performing and discussing a meaningful group analysis, both at a technical and an interpretive level. Furthermore, the capabilities will be assessed, both individually and collectively, in making judgments on the group performance, in communicating with the group members and in written and oral communications. The group-work will provide students with maximum 3 points. 2. The final exam consists in an individual written test on the whole program and aims to verify the theoretical and practical knowledge acquired. Students who do not attend the course will be assessed through the written test indicated at point 2. above and described below.
The written test includes three questions (for all students): one exercise on consolidation accounting and two semi-open questions that might be theoretical and/or practical. The test is successful if the mark is at least equal to 18/30 in each one of the three questions. The exam lasts 1 hour and 30 minutes and will provide students with maximum 30/30 points.
Students who pass the written test might request an oral examination t if they were confident of reaching a higher mark.
