Quizzes will constitute 30% of the final grade. Because the importance of "hard facts" is much more
pronounced in an MSc Program (as compared to an MBA), quizzes will be given at the beginning of each session.
They won't be about checking some deep understanding of the topic, but simply whether a student did her assigned readings. The quiz questions will be chosen from a broader list which I will post on Moodle in the morning of the day of the class. The idea here is that you do the readings without knowing the range of questions - and then maybe spend 30 minutes over lunch on the day of the class to double-check things that will actually be on the quiz.
In a small group, your participation is imperative. That's why, as much as 50% of the final grade will be the class participation in Session 1-7 (10% for each session). The participation will be graded by the instructor, the student will see the grade after each session via Moodle.
For Session 8, you will be asked to do a role-play exercise in a group of 2 or 3.The final exercise will constitute 20% of the grade.
