The information technology-embedded working conditions of the modern workplace, places a premium on the ability to look for information, and assemble it quickly. To meet these workplace demands, student evaluation focuses on testing understanding and ability to harness information using internet technology and other academic resources. Conventional closed book exams are restricted to testing conceptual retrieval and arrangement. It is anticipated that the proportion of open-format examinations will increase over time, but CMS seeks to ensure that this process is administered to encourage maximum efficiency in learning.
CMS students can access management instructional materials in the University library and students are encouraged to read widely within and beyond the syllabus.
