Based on the key word, the student formulates a problem which they will elaborate on in a free written paper which must include methods, processes and analyses. During the exam period, the student must carry out empirical work, the analysis of which must form part of the written paper and be further elaborated on at the oral exam.

    During the exam period, the student develops a solution and prepares a presentation both of which they will bring along to the oral exam. The solution may be material and/or immaterial. However, it is important that the solution is oriented towards the specialisation and the profession that the student is training for. The quality of the solution should be such as is to be expected of a professional bachelor in Design and Business. There must always be
