- Really bad teachers. No structure what so ever. Bad english.» (Very poor)
- The lecturers were not well prepared and the lecture plan was unorganized. An example of this is that the division into project groups took half a lecture. It would be better to use the student portal where students can sign up for a project. The information about the project should be given at the first lecture so that students have enough time to contact a company.» (Poor)
- Guest lecture will be fine» (Average)
- There should have been more focus on explaining the economic terms and less on the mathematics, that was generally quite simple.» (Average)

- I understood part of the course after reading. I couldnt get much from lecturing.» (> 75%)
- As the couse is taken by students from different programs it should be considered that lectures will collide. It can"t be expected that the students attend all lectures and there should be information on the course home page or in the book that covers all subjects.» (> 75%)

- As the teachers told the answers of all the hard questions under the exam, I think that every one must have passed this course. So yes, the exam was as easy as the course...» (Very poor)
- It would have if Urban had not given all the answers to people who asked him questions. I have emailed "Studentkåren" about his actions and I am waiting for a response from them. It is not supposed to be done in that way! If people do not know the formulas they need at the exam it is NOT ok for the teacher to give it to them!» (Average)
- The exam was a strange one. Almost the same as earlier exams. Would be very hard if we hadn"t the earlier exams to look at but ridiculously easy when have looked at old exams.» (Average)
- toooooo easy» (Average)
- The exam is too easy» (Average)
- However, the teachers did give the answers to some questions during the exam and helped some students with formulas. This was very unfair for the student that really had studied and I consider this as cheating!» (Very Good)

- Because of extreme problems with the group dynamics more energy went to that than into the project. And when it comes to the opposition the report we got to write about was way below what we think is adequate at masters level. I hope that will show in the grades of the people who wrote it.» (little bit)
- a bit about the company. A large portion about choosing the teammates. and a really large bit of information about keeping the leash tight to they persons you lead.» (little bit)
- The project does not reflect the course that much.» (little bit)

- It was soooo bad. The books way to calculate things does not correlate with the real world. The book is so focused on technical aspects, while the real world investments are made by all sorts of reasons. Lets do a fictive project in this course instead. Start with a fictive company with some presets such as bank rates, operational capital,costs, bussines plan etc, then do some investment descions towards that fictive company. This projects is more of a journalistic project than economic.» (Not much)
- I expected a more broad course. It was almost only about investments I felt. But maybe that"s one of the largest parts to work with as an engineer with some economic knowledge.» (Very little)
- The project was too much work and responsibility for the swedish students. The lecturer should not state that "only" swedish student will be able to contact companies.» (Very little)

- Me (swedish) and one other swedish student did, 99.9% of all work from setting up the interview to writing the report.» (Very poor)
- Some of the group members didn"t do anything even if we told them many times what to do.» (Very poor)
- The swedish students had to lead and organize the work. Several foreign exchange students are unfamiliar with writing a scientific report. There were a lot of problems with student that simply copied information from wikipedia. Better information of how the project work should be preformed must be provided.» (Poor)
- It can be hard to communicate when the other part doesn"t know english.» (Poor)
- The swedish students just stopped coming for meetings and did not participate in choosing the company.» (Poor)
- It is really hard to work with people from different programs because all have different scheduals and therefore meetings are really hard to plan.» (Average)
- Very difficult to organize meetings when comming from different classes. Better to decide groups ourselves. Also, very bad organization when creating these groups.» (Average)
- Swedes tend to do most of the work in the project.» (Average)
- some of them did not put enough effort, so the other students had to work for those slackers...» (Average)

12. Any other comments about the project, its contents and the work process?

- The only problem is that the companies are not intended to cooperate.»
- See above.»

- Difficult to be able too meet and work together when being a large group (7) and people from different programs. »
- The content was to broad. It might be better if the topic was narrow down to focus on just few important ones.»
- hard to find a company and this gave the project a very slow start.»
- You really need to tell the students that it is forbidden to copy/paste from the internet. I hope you check that in the reports handed in.»
- Project was good.»
- Its good to relate what we learn in class and the professional work»
- It is hard to really understand what you should do and present. You have no inforation about how different grades are aworded»
