Assessment is external and takes the form of an individual oral examination (20 minutes per student including votation) based on an integrated project (max. 55 A4 pages). The project report is to be written as a group project (4-5 students). Assessment is based on the integrated project as well as the oral presentation.
The integrated project covers all modules offered in both first and second semester. 
The deadline for submission of the project, which is regarded as examination registration, is stipulated in the project guide.
The make-up/re-exam takes place in August. If a student is ill during the regular oral exam, he/she will be able to re-use the project at the make-up exam. If the student was ill during the writing of the project and did not contribute to project the make-up exam project can be written individually or in groups (provided that other students are taking the make-up/re-exam).
Course content

Emphasis in the project work is on the ability of students to analyse a business development problem by applying theories, frameworks and tools covered in both the first- and second-semester courses.
