Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel
There are three assignments in total for this seminar.
• Group Presentation (25 %) – all group members receive the same grade
• Seminar paper (50 %) – individual grade
• Literature Review (25 %) – individual grade
First, students are supposed to work in groups and prepare a group presentation in which selected aspects of economics systems will be compared between two East Asian countries. This task includes the preparation and submission of handouts with the key points, and of a PPT presentation. The grade from the group presentation accounts for 25 % of the final grade and will be the same for each group member. The group presentation will be graded according to the quality of the handout, the PPT and the presentation itself.
Details on the group presentation assignment will be provided in the Exercise Course.
Deadline submission of handout and PPT (in electronic form): 06:00 on 08.01.2020.
Second, students are required to write a term paper (Seminararbeit, 10,000 words) in which they compare two countries on the basis of an analytical framework. The term paper accounts for 50 % of the final grade. Students work on this assignment individually, and thus receive an individual grade.
Third, the analytical framework for the term paper is developed from a thorough literature review. The literature review accounts for 25 % of the final grade. Students work on this assignment individually, and thus receive an individual grade.
Details including the topic, the structure, the layout and grading criteria of the term paper and the literature review will be explained to you in the Exercise Course.
Deadline literature review: 06:00 on 03.12.2019. The literature review will only be accepted in electronic form via Moodle as either a Word or OpenOffice file.
Deadline term paper: 06:00 on 01.04.2020. Term papers will only be accepted in electronic form via Moodle as either a Word or OpenOffice file.
Note: In order to pass the seminar successfully, you must submit all three assignments as listed above. The term paper is an indispensable component of the seminar. Students must have their term paper graded with at least 4.0 or else will have to repeat the seminar. Students who fail to submit a term paper will be graded with 5.0 (fail) for the whole seminar, regardless of the other assignments.
