    Lectures will be held to present the issues planned, making use of audio-visual resources. The students will be provided with several practical examples in the context of these issues, as well as adequate bibliography. Practical exercises will be conducted in the context of the contents.

    The evaluation is continuous with

    • Practical exercises following each program content.
    • Practical project simulating de market reality (with oral presentation)

    A nonattendance greater than 30% of the total teaching hours implies disapproval in the chair (not applicable for working students).
    Given the nature of this course, attendance at continuous assessment is mandatory. If the student misses more than 30% of the lessons and does not attend the continuous assessment sessions, he/she will not be able to take the exam.
