Students enrolled on the Part-time Global MBA will be assessed on the basis of examinations and continuous assessment, the latter comprising of two assignments at set points:
Assignments - 50%
Each course will be assessed on the basis of two assignments, contributing 50% to the overall course mark. These assignments will either be on the basis of two individual pieces of written work, or one individual written assignment coupled with an assessed group assignment during the residential workshops. The assessment method is determined by each individual course director and is based on optimizing the student learning experience and reflection process - students will be informed of the assessment method for each module at the start of each trimester.
Exams - 50%
A three hour open book examination, forms an integral part of our MBA program and carries 50% weighting towards the assessment of each course.
