Exams are an important part of the academic study experience. They may be written and/or oral test. Students are advised to check the specific information regarding the exam rules by visting the course webpage (see Courses section).
Exams are marked out of 30:
- exams that are awarded a mark between 0 and 17 out of 30 are considered as failed ones and must therefore be repeated;
- a mark between 18 and 30 out of 30 allows students to obtain the credits provided for by the programme structure;
- examination Board may award "lode" (cum laude) to students who achieve thirty out of thirty (30/30);
- a mark can be rejected by the students and the exam has to be taken during the next session.
The results of written exams are available on the course website or as otherwise specified by the professor.
Please note that the final mark for 12 credits exams is the average between the results of the two modules.
Exams can only be taken after the course has ended, respecting the programme structure provided by the Programme Office on the website of MSc in Business Administration. Once the mark has been registered on delphi, the student is notified about the mark registration and has some dates to araise any issues. After this time period the mark is officially registered and can't be cancelled.
Candidates are reminded that the Master of Science in Business Administration programme considers academic misconduct as a very serious matter.
