The exam assesses the general knowledge of course topics.
The assessment is based on 1) a written exam on the referral texts and on the materials provided by the instructor; 2) an oral exam.
Description of the written exam
The written exam is composed by 10 questions, 5 multiple choice questions and 5 short exercises.
For each question the right answer scores 1 points, a wrong one scores - 0,25, no answer scores 0.
So the range of votes is from -2,5 to 10.
In order to pass the written exam the score must be greater than or equal to 6/10.
No textbooks, class or personal notes, slides, cell phones or other devices are allowed during the exam.
Description of the oral exam
Small teams (2-5 students) will perform an empirical work consisting in the preparation and illustration of a hypothetical presentation concerning a deal of a real company. The presentation is ideally directed to providers of equity and/or debt capital (investment funds).
The analysis of the deal is chosen by students upon approval of the teacher. The analysis is made up by a written report and a presentation lasting no more than 60 minutes.
The range of votes is from 0 to 20.
In order to pass the oral exam, the score must be greater than or equal to 12/20.
The final grade is the sum of the grades of the written and the oral exam. In order to pass the exam, the score must be greater than or equal to 18.
The exam can be taken in the usual exam dates.
If a student refuses the written grade, the re-sit grade overrides the previous one .
The attribution of the “cum laude” is at the discretion of the instructor, provided that the final grade is 30.
