Grading Scale0 - 5
Course materialTo be announced by the teacher via Moodle.
PrerequisitesNo prerequisites (However this is a business-related course, so some basic knowledge of business is expected. If you come from different type of background then you should study more of the terms and tools and theories on your own.)
Other ConsiderationsThis course is an online course done via Moodle. Specific instructions will be given at the beginning of the course. Please note that a web-based course requires motivation and self-studying from the students. The study method is online learning, which requires independent study skills. The lecturer will give tips and hints how to progress, but the work is to be done by the students.
