Evaluation Criteria

Classification Type: Quantitative (0-20)
Evaluation Methodology: The syllabus contents are covered in lectures (which provide and discuss the theoretical principles of the syllabus) and theoretical-practical (through interactive lessons, fostered by intense and valuable participation of students, being used teaching cases developed by internationally renowned schools in the Entrepreneurship education, in particular the Babson College). The evaluation consists of two elements: a written test (50%) and practical group work (50%), both with a minimum grade of 7.00 values. At the time of appeal or improvement, the evaluation criteria remain, giving the student the opportunity to recover or improve only the grade of the written test.
