Assessment Rationale And Relationship
Diverse range of skills can be tested; either through a traditional written discussion that explores 1) a trend in marketing and 2) analyses that trend from a certain ontological angle or 2) a trend can be explored in a filmic/audio-visual mode (akin to some forms of assessments on NUBS' MBA that are popular with students and novel as an assessment).
