TRANSLATION RESULTS
LECTURES ARE THE BASIS OF THE TEACHING METHOD USED. THROUGH FRONTAL TEACHING AND INTERACTION WITH THE CLASSROOM, THE UNDERSTANDING OF THE PROGRAM PARTS IS FACILITATED AND THE CLOSE LINK EXISTING BETWEEN THE THEORETICAL ASPECTS AND THE REAL CONTEXT IS EMPHASIZED.
Verification of learning
THE ACHIEVEMENT OF THE OBJECTIVES OF THE COURSE IS CERTIFIED BY PASSING AN EXAM
WITH EVALUATION IN THIRTIES. THE EXAM INCLUDES A WRITTEN AND ORAL TEST TO VERIFY THE LEARNING OF ALL THE MODULES COVERED DURING THE COURSE. MORE PRECISELY:
THE WRITTEN TEST (ONE QUESTION PER MODULE, FOR A DURATION OF 90 MINUTES) WILL HAVE THE PURPOSE OF VERIFYING THE ACTUAL LEARNING OF THE DIFFERENT TOPICS COVERED.
THE ORAL EXAM (OPTIONAL) WILL BE AIMED AT JUDGING IF THE STUDENT IS ABLE TO ASSESS ECONOMIC-FINANCIAL PHENOMENA WITH THE INSTRUMENTS ACQUIRED
