Teaching methods
Lectures and discussion, managerial game carried out in seminars.
Assessment methods
The course finishes with an oral exam. Assessment of student’s performance in the managerial game carried out in seminars is also a part of the oral exam classification. 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.
