CIMBA’s education philosophy focuses on problem-solving and the application of learning. Professors should encourage this strategic thinking through other exam methods like short answer, essay, workout problems, or presentations rather than multiple choice tests. CIMBA also requires faculty to give a significantly weighted final or major project during your assigned meeting time for your final. This helps maintain the academic reputation of the program as well as keep students focused on schoolwork during their final days in Italy.
While academics are first and foremost at CIMBA, we also want students to be able to enjoy exploring all that Europe has to offer. When scheduling your exams and project due dates, it has been our experience that it is preferable for both students and professors to have the due dates occur before a travel week or travel weekend.
