Continuous assessment is privileged: 2 digital written documents (e-folios) during the semester (40%) and a final digital test, Global e-folio (e-folio G) at the end of the semester (60%). In due time, students can alternatively choose to perform one final exam (100%).

This CU assumes an eminently practical character, in a project logic, and integrative, in that it will use knowledge acquired in other CUs,

from the most varied areas of this course. Starting with a theoretical approach to the case study methodology, the course develops from

the use of international practical cases available internationally, but also, as agreed with the partner MC SONAE, students can bring

concrete situations from their workplaces and, in harmony with the group leaders, work in an academic context, situations that, using

interdisciplinarity, may help to contribute with creative solutions to the intended solutions.
