Learning outcomes

When we are studying a subject related to business management in a degree, the objective of learning has to be understanding how that subject intervenes in management and its relevance and its impact on the achievement of the organizations' outcomes.

Therefore learning outcomes are related to a holistic understanding of the strategic role of HR management to help the organization reach its goals in the short, medium or long term.

Students are supposed to understand how the different HR policies will contribute to the final sucess of the organization and how the HR management should meet its needs and, if possible, anticipate them

Sustainable Development Goals

Evaluation

The final grade will be the weighted average of the following components:

  • Final exam: 60%

 

IMPORTANT

The overall grade for the course is the weighted average of the grade obtained for the components. In order to pass this course, students must meet both of the following criteria:

  • The overall average grade of all components has to be at least 5.0 or higher and.
  • The grade on the final exam is at least a 4.0 or higher.

The final exam will encompass the totality of the content covered in the theory sessions. The exam will consist in some short and medium questions (no multiple choice questions). The initial and recovery exam will keep the same structure.

 

  • Recovering a failing grade

 

Only students that have participated in Seminars (Continuous assessment)  and those who have participated in final exam will be authorized to take the additional evaluation, as stated in the following article of the Agreement of the Government Council (Article 11.4.2)

To be eligible to take the recovery evaluation, students must meet ALL of the following conditions:

  • the student has attended at least 4 seminars out of 6.
  • the student has participated in the final exam.

Since, as it is stated in the above mentioned article, only those students who have failed the whole subject may participate in the process of recuperation, there will be no opportunity to participate for improving the grade if initially it is equal to or higher than 5.0.

If the student obtains a grade of 5.0 or higher, the student will pass the course. 

If the student obtains a grade lower than 5.0 or a grade at the final exam or at the Continuous assessment (or at both of them)  are below 4, the student will fail the course. Provided that the student is eligible to take the recovery examination, the grade obtained at the recovery evaluation will replace the one previously obtained. Both final exam and/or Continous assessment grades will be kept for the recovery process if they are 4 or over 4.

Bibliography and information resources

This course is not based on a single textbook but instead uses a careful selection of articles. There are no compulsory readings and students will only be asked to know what has been mentioned in theory sessions.
