Positives: Broad knowledge base ... Variety of subjects gives a good overall understanding, but still offered a level of depth not attained in a under-grad.

Negatives: Costs and lack of flexibility with subject selection

My advice to future students is: Prep before-hand with readings and be aware of the time required for work. Specifically in intensive learning periods

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: This is an awesome course because its a dual degree (basically two degrees) which can be completed in four years, where each degree normally takes three years to complete. In your last semester, you are required to complete 100 hours of work placement, which I believe is extremely beneficial (this is the BIHTM degree side). This course also focuses on real world problems and sets you up for a good career in the future.

Negatives: I cant think of any negatives for this course.

My advice to future students is: I would tell all future students to take every opportunity that comes their way. I would also encourage them to get a job or internship in the career they are interested in, as soon as they possible can.

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!

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.
