Degree Programme in Administrative Studies & Degree Programme in Business Studies

Johtamiskorkeakoulussa on siirrytty miltei pääsääntöisesti sähköiseen tenttimiseen. Kauppatieteiden tutkinto-ohjelmassa ja hallintotieteiden tutkinto-ohjelmassa ovat kuitenkin edelleen käytössä myös yleiset tenttipäivät, jotka löytyvät opetusohjelmasta.

Opintosuoritusrekisteriin liittyvät tiedustelut opintosihteeri Selene Oittiselle.

Degree Programme in Politics

Most course units/modules in the curricula of the Degree Programme in Politics can be completed also by independent study (book exams or essay assignments). Please see the curricula guide (links also below) for information on course unit/module contents, requirements and the list of set books.

All book exams in Politics are to be taken using the electronic exam service Tenttis. In case a course unit/module is not readily available in English in Tenttis, please contact the examiner to request them to upload exam questions in English, and also to agree on alternative set books if necessary.

If you wish to complete a course unit/module with an essay assignment instead, please contact the teacher in charge of the course unit/module to agree on the topic and guidelines (N.B. examiners and teachers in charge may not always be the same persons).

Further information:

Results of the examinations are published in Wentti (virtual results service).
