Assessment

The assessment of this module is by written group coursework (60%), oral presentation (30%) and participation in class (10%). Students will be asked to choose a case study company. The case study company chosen should be (well-) known so that there is enough information available in the academic literature, in the web, or in the news, that can be retrieved to conduct the critical analysis. The topic of the case study can be any topic covered in this module. Students will need to submit a written group report and present their findings in the third session of the seminar.
