Course Assessment

In order to obtain the Advanced Certificate course in Brand Management participants are required to complete:

  • an assessment (during the course)

The assessment is based on a critical thinking exercise, from which participants are asked questions based on a given scenario, to evaluate their understanding and comprehension of key concepts from the course.

The purpose of the practical assessment is to test, at one level, factual recall of critical concepts, and at a higher level, to allow participants the chance to apply knowledge assumed by the syllabus to completely unfamiliar situations e.g. a scenario. Less emphasis is placed on factual recall and greater placed on critical thinking and the practical application of concepts.
