Assessment Rationale And Relationship
The examination allows students an opportunity to demonstrate knowledge, understanding and the possession of subject-specific insights.
The exam will be divided in two parts, one to check the acquisition of the market knowledge (IKO1-4) and the second one to assess the critical thinking of the students (IKO5)as well as the acquisition of intended skills.
In order to test relevant learning outcome, the first part will mainly use multiple-choice questionnaires (MCQ), while the second part will use open questions linked to specific case studies or business situations.
