Demonstration of the Syllabus Coherence with the Curricular Unit's Objectives:
The first two chapters of the program seek to help achieve the objectives proposed for this that course, including the ability to financially evaluate investment projects and support business decisions based on a referential consistent analysis (sustained in economic theory).
The themes students must work on the management simulator are the ones that they have to manage on a real organization.
Teaching Methodologies (Including Evaluation):
Continous. Two individual assignments and the management simulator performance. 1st test (40% - CP1. and CP2.), 2nd test (20% - CP3.) + Game (simulator - 40%).
Demonstration of the Coherence between the Teaching Methodologies and the Learning Outcomes:
Being the objective to put into practice previously acquired knowledge, a management simulator is the most adequate tool to do it, without neglecting the need for initial framework of themes to apply in the simulator.
