written
The assessment for this module of the course is based on a written exam composed by 3 sections:
1. a set of multiple choice questions
2. an exercise
3. an open question (theoretical/practical)
Each part is equally weighted and the final grade will be obtained summing up the points attributed in each section.
The grade of this module of the course will be averaged with what received in the second module.
During the course students will be also invited to join a “Stock Market Game”. The participation in the game is optional, but its assessment will add points to the final written exam grade. Groups of students (2 - 4 students) are required to manage a virtual portfolio of stocks using the stock simulator of Investopedia. The groups, working under the supervision of a tutor, will prepare periodic reports describing their investment decisions.
The assessment will be based both on the quality of the reports and interaction with the tutor.
