Presenting selected business topics over the course of three presentations: one short (8-12 minutes) prepared presentation, one longer (15-20 minutes) prepared presentation, as well as one shorter (8-12 minutes) unprepared presentation.

Each of the two prepared topics can be chosen by the student with the approval of the instructor. The final ad-hoc presentation will be on a given business topic on the basis of a background article provided by the instructor and a total preparation time of 75 minutes.

Learning outcomes

After completing the course, students will be able to give clearly structured presentations in English, having improved, reinforced and refined their communicative skills to be applied in presentations and discussions.

Attendance requirements

Full attendance is obviously recommended, but participants can miss a maximum of one session if absolutely necessary. Should they be scheduled to present in that session, they will have to give their presentation in another meeting.

If possible under WU regulations at the time, classes will generally be held in person & on campus. Individual sessions may be held online (to be announced ahead of time), but no session will be offered simultaneously in person and online.

Teaching/learning method(s)

The teaching methods used include joint review and assessment of presentations.

  • delivery of a 10-minute presentation on a predefined topic (30%)
  • delivery of an ad-hoc presentation (8-12 minutes) on a previously unknown topic (30%)
  • longer presentation (15-20 minutes) on a previously agreed topic (40%)
  • regular attendance and active participation in discussions (= 'yes/no' criterion)


Prerequisites for participation and waiting lists
