The Management Program is divided into individual modules. Each module ends with an online exam.
Each competence module ends with an assignment which counts 1- 4 workload units towards your final grade. The assignment takes the form of an online test consisting of three blocks: 1. Revision of module content in the form of multiple choice questions. 2. Further testing on module content in the form of knowledge-based questions. 3. Problem-solving questions requiring you to apply what you have learned to a practical scenario, write texts or complete other tasks which necessitate the transfer of theoretical knowledge into practical work.
The optional case studies—if you wish to attend one or more—provide you with an opportunity to hone your management skills based on knowledge gained during the other modules. You will receive comprehensive feedback on what you have done well and areas where there is room for improvement. Your work will also be graded and counts 2 workload units towards your final exam depending on the kind to workshop.
The optional project thesis—again, if you wish to write one—provides evidence that you are able to independently and methodologically solve and present a relevant practical management issue by using the acquired knowledge and skills. It counts 8 workload units.
You need to gain at least 48 workload units to successfully complete the course. You are free to gain additional workload units by taking more modules or cases if you so wish.
