This course is held in German.
The course will take place in presence at Oskar-Morgenstern-Platz in compliance with the Corona security concept of the University of Vienna. If necessary the course will be held in a hybrid manner (smaller student groups can participate on spot whereas others follow the classes online through livestreaming).
In any case, the first partial exam (intermediate exam) will take place on Thursday 7th April 2022 from 9:45 to 11:15 exclusively in presence at Oskar-Morgenstern-Platz (exam time: 30 minutes). Also, the second partial exam (final exam) will take place exclusively in presence only on Thursday 23rd June 2022 from 09:45 to 11:15 (exam time: 60 minutes).
Aims, contents and method of the course
Assessment and permitted materials
The criteria for the performance assessment are divided as follows:
• Participation (through clicker questions [single-choice, multiple-choice, cloze, drag&drop via Moodle] during each lessen; share of the overall grade: 10% = 10 points),
• Acting as a sparring partner for an assigned lesson (includes a presentation on a given topic and discussion of case studies during the lessen; share of the overall grade: 25% = 25 points)
• an intermediate exam (share of the final grade: 20% = 20 points) and
• a final exam (share of the overall grade: 45% = 45 points).
Both exams (intermediate and final) are held in writing in German. Only unannotated law texts, non-programmable calculators and non-electronic dictionaries may be used in the exams.
Only underlining and highlighting of text passages with highlighters etc. as well as the use of Post-Its are permitted. Post-Its may only be labelled with titles of laws/abbreviations of laws. Prohibited are therefore in particular: Any paragraph headings, commentaries or even individual words, examination schemes, other signs, additional sheets as well as paragraph references and chains of references. For example, you may add a Post-It with the following title to § 9 KStG: "§ 9 KStG". However, a combination with the section title, e.g. "§ 9 KStG - Unternehmensgruppen" or even just "Unternehmensgruppen" would be inadmissible.
An assessment is also made if students have participated in the course at least once (e.g. signature performance).
Minimum requirements and assessment criteria
Distribution of grades:
5: up to 50% (up to 50 points).
4: 50.5% - 63% (50.5 points - 63 points)
3: 63.5% - 74.5% (63.5 points – 74.5 points)
2: 75% - 87% (75 points - 87 points)
1: 87.5% - 100% (87.5 points - 100 points)
From 50.5% (= 50.5 points) the course is positively completed.
Attendance is compulsory for the course. Unexcused absence from the first class automatically leads to deregistration in order to allow students on the waiting list to move up. If you are unable to attend the first class, you must inform us in advance by email in order to continue attending the course.
Overall, absence from the course more than twice will result in a negative grade. Excuses for absence are not required (except for the first class).
