Teaching method

Teaching methods: lectures, laboratory classes/computer, project, presentations by students

The teaching methodologies are focused on independent work of the student and practice (hands-on). This work is tutorial for the application of theory to practice of Geomarketing. At the end each student must know to propose a project of Geomarketing and to reveal knowledge and skills accumulated over the course.

Evaluation method

1 theoretical exam: [25%]
1 practical exam: [25%]
1 project report: [50%]
1 presentation of the project: [pass/no pass].

[According to the FCSH Assessment Standards, the proposed evaluation elements to introduce students in the first class may suffer readjustments, particularly in the percentage of each element.]
