Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The UC is Theoretical - Practical, giving particular emphasis to research activities, organization and study conducted by the student, and the realization of a theoretical-practical research work. Classes are organized combining two complementary teaching techniques: (i) exposure and discussion classes (they are supported by slides and also by practical cases used to motivate the discussion, as well as other support material made available through the E-contents platform); (ii) practical and oriented classes (they are oriented to the realization in group of a research work with a written practical case on the strategy of a real company, presented and defended by each work group). The knowledge assessment integrates three components: class participation and attendance (greater than or equal to 75%); carrying out a work with practical application in a group (30%); and individual test (70%).
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
