Teaching methods
The course is taught in the form of seminars.
Assessment methods
The course is concluded by a credit test. Students are allowed to sit the credit test if they meet the following requirements:
1. 80% attendance in seminars
2. Active participation - continuous preparation, homework
3. Seminar work - 2 business letters
A credit test is considered successful if a student reaches at least 60% of points.
Any copying, recording or leaking tests, use of unauthorized tools, aids and communication devices, or other disruptions of objectivity of exams (credit tests) will be considered non-compliance with the conditions for course completion as well as a severe violation of the study rules. Consequently, the teacher will finish the exam (credit test) by awarding grade "F" in the Information System, and the Dean will initiate disciplinary proceedings that may result in study termination.
