Exams will be organized around 2 sessions: the first session will be administered at the end of the sixth module and the second at the end of the last module.
Students will have a one-week break for exams preparation and the following week will sit down for exams, respectively, at the end of module six and at the end of module twelve.
A distance-learning module will follow these taught modules where students will be required to show their capacity and creativity in designing a specific tender for goods, services or works.
After the courses, students have to be involved in a traineeship period (a “stage”), within their own (or another public) organization. For a candidate to be admitted to the thesis’ defense, the Board of the Master program will have to approve the project work prepared within that period.
At the end of the Master’s programme, students will have to submit a dissertation, which will be part of the final evaluation. The dissertation should be a case study concerning procurement issues related to their own organizations, to a specific country or to a public procurement Challenge. In drafting their paper students should demonstrate an understanding of the topic and the use of appropriate methodologies.
