The course is taught in a blended format using a combination of class meetings and attached individual pre- and post-course digital learning phases. It will make use of a variety of teaching material (e.g. Power Point slides, textbooks, videos, articles from academic journals and the business press, cases, exercises). Due to its workload, a significant part of the course consists of a student’s individual study of the relevant pre-course preparatory material and mastering of assignments before and after the meetings in class. Preparing case studies and other compulsory material before class is important to enable effective work and progress during this intensive class. Two multiple-choice quizzes will take place. To participate in these quizzes you need a device (e.g. smartphone, tablet, laptop) that can be connected to the CANVAS platform Students are expected to participate actively in class. Therefore, attendance of at least 80% of total class time is required to get a passing grade of the course. Assignments missed due to missed classes cannot be compensated. In case of illness/injury preventing a student from participating, a medical certificate is required as documentary evidence
