Language medium The language medium for the programme is English. The minor dissertation may be submitted in either English or Afrikaans. Learning components Lectures will be presented by academic staff and/or guest lecturers. Guest lecturers are experts in their respective fields and will conduct their classes with the main objective of sharing their practical experience. The challenge for the student is to fully utilise this opportunity to draw from these sources of knowledge and experience and form a basic understanding of what may be expected from them on completion of the course. 8 9

6 Coursework module lectures will be presented weekly (two lectures a week) on either Monday or Tuesday and Thursday evening from 18:00 21:00 during the first year of study and on Wednesday evening from 18:00 21:00 during the first semester of the second year. Course-work modules will run over the following times: Modules: DEF9X01, ARF9X01& EMF9X01 First semester of the first year Modules: FEN9X02, RIM9X01 & ARF9X02 Second semester of the first year Modules: CPS9X01 & CRF9X01 First semester of the second year Modules: MDF9X01 & MDF9X02 Second year Registered students will be supplied with a detailed timetable during registration. Assessment In each of the course-work modules, students will continuously be assessed via various individual and/or group assignments which include the analysis and presentation of business case studies. A last assessment opportunity in the form of a theoretical/ practical examination will be completed at the end of each module. A supervisor (and co-supervisor) will be allocated to each student for the minor dissertation module. The supervisor (and co-supervisor) will provide theoretical and practical advice and expert guidance to the student regarding the research project. A minimum of two independent assessors will be appointed by the Department of Finance and Investment Management to assess the minor dissertation. Neither the supervisor nor co-supervisor acts as an assessor of the minor dissertation. Compilation of final mark Continuous assessment activities such as assignments and case studies will constitute the module mark for each of the coursework modules (Modules 1 to 8). The final mark of each coursework module will comprise of a weighted average of the module mark and the last assessment opportunity mark. The final mark for the minor dissertation is the average of the marks allocated by the independent assessors. The final mark for the coursework programme (MCom Finance) is the weighted average of the coursework module marks and the minor dissertation mark. The weight of the minor dissertation is 50%. Course material The prescribed literature for each module will be communicated on a timely basis. This is by no means sufficient to pass the course. All sources of information will have to be combined to pass the course, i.e. formal lecturers, class discussions, case studies and own research. In addition to the prescribed books and hand-out material, a list of additional recommended reading will be distributed for each module. These sources will greatly enhance students understanding and insight into the topics discussed for each module, but it is not a requirement that students buy these books.

The article(s) should be based on the research and must be submitted to the supervisor before the completion of the final assessment of the thesis. The aim of the publication of such articles is to make research results more widely known to fellow experts in the field. Depending on the student s previous studies, work experience and proposed research subject, it may be necessary to do additional preliminary research. The supervisor will, where deemed necessary, prescribe an additional study programme. A student will furthermore be expected to do the necessary self-study on the relevant subjects with which he/she deals in the thesis. Students are personally responsible to identify and master the sources pertaining to the subject. However, their supervisor(s) may be of assistance in this regard. The minimum duration of a doctoral programme is two years (either full-time or part-time)
