To be eligible for the final exam, participants have to complete the course before August 15 (for those who started in March) or February 15 (for those who started in September). Completing the course means that the participant has to pass the online-test of each unit and to submit/conduct and pass all mandatory assignments until the respective deadline.

How does the final exam look like?

The final examinations for our certification online programmes are two hours and paper written classroom examinations taking place at partner institutions spread around the world. To pass the exam, you need to have more than 50% of the total points. The final exam can be retaken up to two times in one of the following terms (6 or 12 months later).

The final exam has to be taken within 12 months after the end of the respective course.
