The exam has the form of a written report (max. 60 standard pages). The report is written by a team of 4 students. As each student receives an individual grade, each group member must identify the exam sections he/she has authored. Each group will be given 4 hours of supervision. Deadline for submission of the report will be in June and the exact date will be announced by the program secretary. Make-up/re-exam will take place in August. If a student did not pass the regular exam, a new or a revised project, cf. advice for the examiner from the ordinary exam, must be handed in at a new deadline announced by the program secretary. The make-up/re-exam report can be written individually or in groups (provided that other students are taking the make-up/re-exam).

Aim of the course
Apply the analytical skills and techniques acquired during the first year of the program on a problem that is relevant to a company, an organization or another outside partner.
The analysis should result in a “consultancy” report addressing a relevant problem for an external partner with emphasis on problem solving and less on theorizing.
