Case studies presentations
As mentioned in the description of the course, eight case studies will be presented. Each group must do both a written and oral presentation of assigned case study. It is important that contribution of each group member is evident and clearly documented. Written part of assigned case studies should not be longer than 10 pages (TNR 11, double space).
