Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria
The classes are theoretical and pratical with particular emphasis on research activities, organization and study conducted by the student. The classes are organized by combining two complementary teaching techniques: (i) presentation and discussion classes (they are supported by slides and also for articles and/or chapters of books used to motivate the discussion, as well as other support material available through platform E-contents)
(ii) lessons and guided practice are oriented towards the achievement of two individual work. The first one is the analysis of a scientific paper. The second one is the preparation, and presentation of a scientific paper on a topic related to Strategic Management. The assessment consists of two components: conducting a review of an article and elaboration of a scientific article. Each of these two components is weighted with 20% and 80% respectively.
