Description of the exam procedure

The final exam is 1st year project group exam.

The project is based on knowledge, methods and the concepts and vocabulary learned during the four courses taken during the semester. The project proceeds from a real-life research question derived from a firm within the sector. Students are expected to select, develop and delimitate the research question.

The project will be followed by an individual oral exam, which takes its point of departure in the group project, but also natural relations to theory and models from syllabus. The individual assessment is based on a combined evaluation of the written group project and the individual oral exam.

Course content, structure and pedagogical approach

The course provides insights into analyses of service concept in contemporary market oriented companies both internally and externally. The course make space for students to discuss the key characteristics of services and service consumption compared with that of tangible goods, the role of the consumer in the perception of service quality and the role of internal stakeholders in service delivery.

Description of the teaching methods
Teaching methods will combine class lectures and discussions for eliciting the concepts, theories and models. Students are expected to take an active part in the class discussions and exercises. Most exercises will be in small groups where preparation is essential. Group presentations and plenary discussions are vital to the success of the course. Lecture plans, cases and question for preparation will be posted at CBS Canvas.
Feedback during the teaching period
Feedback during the teaching period:
Forms of continuous feedback are essential parts of the course and will be provided through interactive activities in class, student presentations and peer-to-peer feedback exercises allowing the students to practice and discuss organization and theory-specific challenges. In particular, students receive feedback in the following forms:

1. Interactive activities in class: Students get feedback through participating in classroom discussions and case study sessions, during which they can apply the tools and concepts discussed in lectures. This takes the form of both lecturer feedback and peer feedback in virtual breakout rooms.

2. Synchronous feedback on generic queries: Students receive feedback on generic queries about their understanding of particular sessions/contents of the course, based on an anonymous, collective Q&A document posted on Canvas. If teaching is delivered online, students can use the chat function to pose their questions during classes.

3. Project supervision in small groups: Project groups are offered two 1-hour focused supervision outside of scheduled lectures. The track teacher provides bookable slots for supervision sessions, that may take place either on Campus or virtual platforms. In order to best support the work-in-progress with the exam project, students are provided with a framework/agenda to prepare the first supervision meeting (including pragmatic advice on scoping the research problem, questions and data collection). Apart from the oral feedback, project groups receive concise written feedback on their choice of topic, theoretical perspective, methods and analytical approaches.

4. Solicited feedback on specific queries: Students may also request and receive feedback on specific queries via mail, both related to particular sessions/contents of the course or to the progress of the 1st year project.
