A positive aspect of the course was the economics and financial aspects. Many of the lecturers were much younger and more relatable to the current real world issues. This allowed me to really enjoy learning as it related to issues I saw everyday and could practically use.
A negative aspect of the course was I found some of the managerial subjects to be dry and outdated. A lot of the content seemed to be rather useless and common sense. This often left me studying mechanically as it didn't seem past getting a good grade.
My advice to future students is: I would recommend that potential future students carefully pick their subjects and maybe reconsider the course they undertake. Although this is a great uni, a business degree is very broad and a more specific course might lead to more enjoyable study experience and more employability options after the degree is completed.
Positives: Skills that apply to a variety of aspects of your life, not just the professional field. Great lecturers and clear assessment outlines
Negatives: Significant portion of exams are hurdles
My advice to future students is: Do the required readings. Listen to your lectures as they happen and go prepared to tutorials
Project management is not for everyone. We are required to manage projects using various tools, understanding the methodologies, and the processes in project management. The positive thing is that it trains you to pay attention to details, and manage time. The course helps me in logical thinking as well, as managing projects require clear logic. The negative thing about it is the assignment scale can be quite large and requires time and effort.
My advice to future students is: My advice is, if you’re into project management, this is a good course. Study hard and don’t skip lectures.
Positives: The information is very relevant to the industry that I am hoping to be in when I finish my degree. It is also very relevant to today's society, and has given me a new perspective on the world we live in
Negatives: The group assignments are very hard to get individual grades from as, if not everyone pulls their equal weight, everyone else's grades suffer
My advice to future students is: Study hard, and time manage. Do all the readings and attend as many lectures as you can. Make friends!
Positives: good structure
Negatives: I never go lectures
My advice to future students is: go to lectures
Positives: In depth technical knowledge imparted through lectures and course material
Negatives: There’s no real sense of practical approach such as on the job trainings which does not make you as equipped to handle real life situations after graduation
My advice to future students is: Whilst studying degree, venture out proactively to gain practical experience outside the classroom
Positives - The BBusMan is very well regarded in the workplace and very flexible in 2 senses - There are a number of majors and subjects available and contact time is reasonable. There are extensive course materials and support readily available. It was a very enjoyable course to study and the St Lucia campus generally has excellent facilities for study and recreation.
Negatives - Some of the academic staff were below par and did not have passion for the subjects they were teaching. Course content was not particularly challenging in many areas.
Advice - Take advantage of all the opportunities to learn and network, including internships to make the most of the course. With the BBusMan it's a lot about who you know and less about what you know and the marks that you get.
Positives: Some of the courses are very applicable to the real world
Negatives: Some of it just seems to repeat the same material
My advice to future students is: Be pragmatic
