How do the Exams and Assessments work?

There are no written exams for this E-MBA program. All the modules are assessed based on the module-specific project. Once you are enrolled in the module, you will be able to access the assignment brief under the ‘Project Details’ section in the learning portal. Apart from the assessment brief, you will be given the learning outcomes and performance criteria to know what is expected in the project from the learner. If you still have questions concerning the assignments, you can seek the support of the faculty during the live classes for the module. We are here to give you the help you need.

As soon as you are enrolled in a module, you will have 90 days to submit the assignment. However, submissions will be accepted from the 21st day of enrollment. You can choose to submit anytime during this 21-day to the 90-day timeline and immediately proceed to the next module. You can use this time to go through all the videos, read all the case studies and articles, and ask questions as you begin to write your assignment. Once submitted, you will not be able to make any changes.

After you have submitted the assignment, the faculty will evaluate and provide feedback, including results (your grade), within 21 days of your submission. If you fail, you will be given feedback on the assignment stating the reasons for failure. You will have to rework the project according to the feedback provided by the assessor. You will need to rework only the areas where you failed and not on the entire project. You will have to resubmit the assignment within 21 days of the publication of the result (grade). There are no additional fees for the resubmission.

Dissertation Guidance and Process

Once you move to the dissertation (thesis) stage, you will be assigned a Dissertation guide who will support you through the Research and Dissertation project. The Guide normally has 4 meetings with the student: first, the proposal meeting, then a first review, a second review and lastly, a final review.

A dissertation will have about 10,000 words. We will be conducting Dissertation guidance classes every month which you need to attend to get a clear understanding of dissertation work and what is expected out of your research. This is in addition to the Dissertation guide meetings. Once you submit the final dissertation, then you may be called for a “viva” to defend your dissertation depending on the decision of the assessor. The result will be published within 30 days of submission of the dissertation; if you fail the dissertation, then you will have an opportunity to resubmit the work as per the feedback provided by the assessor and the corrected work should be submitted within 30 days of publishing the results.

If you fail on your resubmission, then you may have to pay the dissertation fee again and you will need to start over on a new project.

Once you have enrolled for the Dissertation, you need to submit the final work within 6 months of enrollment. In case of failure of submission, an extension fee will be applicable. The shortest time allocated to submit the dissertation is 90 days.

Will I be eligible for further studies?

Yes, the E-MBA is awarded by UCAM, Spain, hence it is globally accepted. However, different countries have different requirements, so they may enforce their own regulations on their educational institutes. Therefore, you are expected to check with the individual university you are interested in further studies before you apply with us.
