All assessment in this subject takes the form of case discussion and analysis. This approach trains students in solving problems from different points of view and equips you with critical analysis skills and competencies. It also requires students to respond to business problems, highlight weaknesses and opportunities for the businesses, and provide a credible solution and analysis for the business.
In Part B of the Assessment, students complete 3 separate case studies over a period of time (Weeks 4, 7 and 11), each addressing a particular theme within the subject. Part C and D (the Group Case (due Week 12) and End of Semester Case) requires an integration of all concepts learned during the semester.
- Part A: Ongoing online discussion (20%) of approximately 1500-2000 words, requiring 25-30 hours of work. Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs) 1, 4 and 5 are addressed in the ongoing online discussion.
- Part B: Three separate case study online discussions (30%) of approximately 1200 words each due in week 4, 7 and 11, requiring 35-40 hours or work. ILO 2 and 3 are addressed in the case study online discussion.
- Part C: Group based case study online discussion (30%) with groups of 5 students of approximately 2500 words per group, requiring 35-40 hours of work. ILOs 2, 3, and 6 are addressed in the group case study online discussion.
