Methods of Teaching / Learning
The teaching and learning strategy is designed to develop an understanding of the nature and scope of International Marketing and also develop ability of critically and correctly making decisions in each step during the process of implementing International Marketing. The seminars will be based on International Marketing cases and so will give students practical understanding of actual issues. A two-hour lecture will take place every week and a one-hour seminar biweekly.
Indicated Lecture Hours (which may also include seminars, tutorials, workshops and other contact time) are approximate and may include in-class tests where one or more of these are an assessment on the module. In-class tests are scheduled/organised separately to taught content and will be published on to student personal timetables, where they apply to taken modules, as soon as they are finalised by central administration. This will usually be after the initial publication of the teaching timetable for the relevant semester.
