Positive: The lectures are a mix of theory and practice, meaning that there is an application of theories using case studies, discussions and presentations in every lecture. Lecturers try to teach students how to critically analyze circumstances and ask critical questions. Thus, active involvement of students is very much expected throughout the course.

Negative: In some classes assignments were unclear and students did not know about what the professor expected the assignment to look like as no example was given.

My advice to future students is: Prospective students ought to be active in class and engage in the discussions as well as be familiar with the weekly academic readings.

Positives: Quality of teaching staff was great. As well as the quality of your peers. Most people that attend this course are highly competitive, which helps to push you further. Good base to branch off into other more specialised fields.

Negatives: Not enough support given in regards to career options. Not enough information given to new students starting the degree on what units mean, and how to choose them. The course overall is very vanilla.

My advice to future students is: Don't skip/miss any statistics tutorials or lectures.

Positives: My major was marketing. The course is very practical - involves lots of team work, presentation, conduct real market research etc.

Negatives: There are lots of theory works involved... I feel like I don't really need to apply those theories to the workplace.

My advice to future students is: I would suggest potential future students to work for 1-2 years before going to university - to find out what they are passionate about and what they good at.
