Exams, Grading and pedagogical principles: 
The CEMS MIM curriculum framework at UAI functions in accordance with CEMS learning objectives. Given that evaluation goes hand-in-hand with achievement of course objectives, the following types of evaluation for all CEMS courses have been outlined:   Type of Evaluation Tests or individual assignments Group assignments and presentations Class participation (Proactivity) Business Project or Final Exam  
  • Since CEMS MIM’s learning objectives include fostering the awareness that work is conducted in a global context where each management decision has an impact on those around us, the program´s evaluation model emphasizes cooperation and participation in class discussions and group projects. Therfore, the School strives to strike a balance between student autonomy and collaboration.  Within the group work context, students will be encouraged to work with various classmates, thus encouraging flexibility and adaptation to different cultures.
  • Presentations and class participation are used in order to focus on communication and audience management skills, which are essential to student professional development. Classes are highly participatory based, and student proactivity in managing his/her own learning process and contributing to class discussions is a key evaluation criterion.
  • For the Business Project, groups of students use interaction or research in the world of business to expand their knowledge on how the market works and to channel their knowledge through practice. Final Exams examine a student ability to consolidate and assimilate all the knowledge acquired during the course.
           The School of Business at UAI grades on a 7.0 scale, where 1.0 is the lowest and 7.0 is the highest. The minimum passing grade is 4.0.
