Teaching methods
Lectures and subsequent presentation of modelling the typical business cases, studies by using study materials which will be handed over, discussions and self study. Student will write a seminar work based on lecturer insdtuctions
Assessment methods
For combined study the course will be split into 4 blocs of lectures and every block will be 4 hours(units). The subject is provided for combined as well as for full-time study. The complex characteristic of the subject requires often switching to ERP system in order to show practical business cases. In every lesson the teacher will require discussion about the subject and will present real case studies from his expertise for a better understanding of usage of managerial methods and tools. The discussion is expected. The first part of the final exam will consist of a written part, in which the student will prepare a basis for the subsequent oral exam about managerial methods. The questions will be supplied in advance and will be stored on the servers ( ). Any copying, keeping a record of tests or carrying the tests out, using forbidden aids including any communication devices or any other breach of objectivity of the exam is regarded as a failure to meet the obligations of the subject and as a serious breach of study regulations. As a consequence, the teacher grades the student with "F" and the dean is allowed to initiate a disciplinary action, which might lead to the termination of the studies.
