Examination methods: Written exam and, if necessary or requested by the student, oral exam. The written exam is composed of closed-ended questions, open-ended questions, and one or more exercises.
Assessment criteria: Assessment will be based on the student’s understanding of the proposed concepts, models and methods as well as on his/her ability to apply them in an autonomous and conscious manner.

Functional areas of a company. Operations; R&D and new product development process; marketing and sales; staff functions.
