Thank you very much for your patience regarding the resit exam in International Management that was originally scheduled for April 28, 2020 - but could not take place due to Covid-19 restrictions.
We have tried to find a viable and fair alternative to hold the exam and have now decided in close cooperation with the examination office to hold the resit exam as a take-home exam on June 16, 2020. This allows you to take the exam contactless from your home. Furthermore, it allows you to take the exam before the usual exam time starts at the end of the current semester, while at the same time providing you with four weeks of preparation time.
Please read the following information carefully:
On June 16, 2020 we will send out the exam via email at 9 am (Central European Summer Time; that is: German time) in the morning to your Uni-Göttingen-student email account. If you do not receive our email, you need to contact us within the first 15 minutes. We will provide two phone numbers and two email addresses shortly before the exam. If you have not contacted us until 9:15, we assume that you have received the exam questions.
The exam tasks will be similar to our usual exams, but will have a stronger focus on the case study and on knowledge application instead of general explanations of concepts. As always, it is a good idea to have a look at our old exams, particularly at those tasks, which refer to cases and concrete (real and fictional) examples.
Instead of 90 minutes, you will have a time frame of 4 hours to complete the 90-points-exam. However, there will be a maximum number of words per tasks – that is, you cannot write as much as you want, but need to adapt your answer to this limit. In case your answer exceeds the word limit, we will stop marking as soon as the word limit has been reached. As always in our exams, your answers need to be presented in full sentences, not in bullet points.
You return your exam via email to me, both as a pdf and as a Word document. After returning your exam, you will receive a confirmation within one hour. Exams that are not returned or returned too late will be graded as failed (5.0). Again, if you encounter problems when sending the exam, you need to contact us within 15 minutes via phone or email.
Please make sure that you are registered for the exam! Exam tasks will only be sent to those students who are registered via the examination office (Prüfungsamt). The new exam date will be available for registration as of today.
If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Clarissa Weber: clarissa-elisabeth.weber[at]wiwi.uni-goettingen.de
