  • Exam

    The learning outcomes of the exam are identical with the learning outcomes of the subject(s)/modul(es)

    Prerequisites for access to the examination
    There is a prerequisite, which is stated when starting the module.
    Exam in one or more subjects
    Subject/module is tested with the following modules
    Type of exam
    Written examination
    Individual written home exam.
    Type of assignment
    The student must select a subject-relevant case with a clear sender and receiver. The case forms the basis for the written assignment. In the assignment, the student must include relevant theories and methods from the 6th semester of the specialisation. Based on the chosen case, the student must prepare a problem statement, which thereby forms the basis for the written assignment. Using methods from the specialisation, empirical studies must be performed during the examination period, and the results of these must then be analyzed in the assignment using theory.

    During the examination period, the student develops a solution proposal aimed at the chosen case. The solution can be material and / or intangible, but it is important that the solution proposal is targeted at the specialisation and profession for which the student is trained. We always work with a quality that can rightly be expected at the professional bachelor level, and there must always be consistency in the interplay between the type, quality of the solution proposal and the specialisations and learning objectives of the specialisation.
    Formal requirements
    The scope of the written home assignment is max. 8 standard pages.

    The title, the student's name, class, date and number of characters must appear on the front page of the assignment.
