- Too focused on his own projects and to some extent, the tools introduced in class seemed difficult to implement in reality. » (Bad)
- Unclear what we were supposed to do and verbosed classes.» (Bad)
- Hard to know what we were supposed to learn during the class. Could have been made easier.» (Bad)
- The subject was interesting but the pace was too low» (Bad)
- Hard to understand what we were intended to learn.» (Bad)
- Intressant innehåll men kursen hade gått att avverka på halva tiden. Detta gjorde att Kunz var tvungen att ta det så långsamt för att fylla timmarna att ingen var intresserad i slutet.» (Bad)
- The topic was not so intersting. The classroom was bad. These things made it hard to listen to Kunz.» (Bad)
- The concept is very good, but he has to move on. It felt as if we just did the same thing over and over again. he is very experienced and has huge knowledge but his instructions were a bit too unclear too. » (Bad)
- Innehållet var helt ok, men det hade inte behövts så många timmar för att gå igenom det. Första två lektionerna höll bra tempo, men efter det kändes allt mest som repetition, förutom sista dagen då man fick klarhet i vad det jobb man genomfört skulle resultera i: att sälja in ett projekt. Den klarheten hade med fördel gjorts under första lektionen. » (Bad)
- Did not make sense» (Bad)
- The class room was not so good because of all noice » (Good)

- Good lecture but a bit too simple» (Good)

- Could have been more lectures and advices to the business plan» (Good)

- Fun and instructively to write a business plan» (Very Good)
- Intresting to make a real project.» (Very Good)
- He was awesome» (Very Good)
- A very fun way to learn» (Very Good)
- The lecture we had was very good but it didn"t felt like it was very helpful for the assignement. It was a very big assignment for such a short lecture, I managed it mostly by old knowledge. » (Very Good)

- Många konstiga uppgifter. Sämst var uppgiften att intervjua ang fruktvanor i en mataffär. Business planen som helt skulle hittas på gav heller ingenting. » (Bad)
- Except Kunz"s, shich were very bad. The multiple choice questions were at an extreme detail level, and did not have anything to do with understanding, only with being good at finding exactly the right sentence in his articles.» (Good)
- the business plan assignment was kinda wierd» (Good)
- I guess our examinations weren"t as difficult as those for actual Berkeley/Stanford students. That is understandable since we are tourists and don"t get the same lecture time and support.» (Good)

Genomsnitt: 2.72

- I expected to be studying a whole lot more, especially I expected to spend more time at the two universities. It would have been great to be involved in some course together with "real" Berkeley/Stanfordists.» (Too low)
- Ganska lagom.» (Low)
- It was, like I had expected. The teachers wanted that wa would have sparetime so we could be tourists in California.» (Low)
- I had to carry out a my market analysis project myself, even though it was initially planned for three people. Therefore the workload was high. But the workload in the courses was low. Difficult to work in general since we had no internet the first weeks and since we lived many poeple in a small appartment.» (High)
- More than expected but not too much.» (High)
- Väldigt ojämn. Vissa veckor gjorde man inget annat än att plugga och andra var det ingenting.» (High)
- It was a lot to do since we were working alot with our project at the same time» (Too high)

9. About the studies, do you think there is anything that should be improved?

- no comment»
- The Kunz-part. Preferably for another course at Stanford altogether. The business plan assignment was also pretty much pointless.»
- If it is possible to get a schedule in the beginning that would help.»
- Reduce Kunz classes»
- Perhaps John Kunz"s lectures. I believe they were not very popular since the subject seemed unmotivated. He is a great guy though and a good teacher but the course content is questionable.»
- More lecture time at Stanford.»
- The class at Stanford could be improved. »
- There should be more focus on some subjects»
- Fler raster under föreläsningarna. Inga 4 timmars pass. Inte ge uppgifter bara för sakens skull även om den inte ger något. »
- Yes, change Kunz to something else at Stanford.»
- The cases could be smaller, and better correlation between the lectures and the assignments. I felt I didn´,t have time to do anything else but study in the afternoon and evenings.»
- A focus switch at Kunz" lectures is needed.»
- no, I am satisfied.»
- I think it should be more of real studies and less "visiting Berkeley and Stanford just for fun"»
- Kunz kurs hade kunnat förbättrats genom att korta antalet timmar och förklara tydligare vad de metoder man lär sig ska användas till i ett vidare sammanhang.»
- Skip the Business model case with ibbs. DOne that many times att Chalmers and there were no new way presented here.»

11. Any other comments about the project:

- We put lots of work into the project. However, the result was good and we learned lots along the way, especially when it comes to what"s important when working in projects.»
- I think the workload varies a lot depending on which project you found. I do not see it as a problem though since students got different foundings and the projects raised different levels of interest among the students.»
- Very good idea. We did a really interesting project with Preem»
- It had been nice to have some briefing with a teacher.»
- It was exciting, especially to interview companies. The money was also well needed. But I would not recommend a project if you want to have time to do other things than work when you are in the US.»
- It is a very good idea and it really works to sell in projects to Swedish companies even during one of the wirst economic downturns ever.»
- very useful to work in an american environment.»
- Extremely interesting and I learnt a lot. I have not learnt so much in a long time in a course.»
- We worked with two different projects and therefore we had to spend a lot of time.»
- Rolig och mycket lärorik upplevelse.»
- It could be a good idea to offer coaching sessions for the project»

- Somewhere between bad and good. Not as inspiring as the other two.» (Bad)
- Only one guy (the CEO) lecturing, he was a sales professional delivering pitches all the time, partially lying (managed to say that he believes a large part of global warming comes from the world being covered in asphalt, which absorbs so much heat...) Learned some interesting stuff though. In general, it is very interesting to have a look at any business in Silicon Valley.» (Good)

- I think it was a waste of money. 12000 SEK/person to be squeezed in, 6 people in a 3-room flat for 6 weeks... I reckon I could have saved at least half of that by arranging the accomodation myself (renting a room in a shared flat). Considering there were 6 of us paying 6000SEK/month for the 3-room flat, the landlord must have made a heck of a lot of money from us.» (Bad)
- We were unlucky and did not get what we paid for» (Bad)
- Our apartment was to small for 6 persons. » (Bad)
- Expensive.» (Good)
- Very nice to live together at a central location. The only negative thing might be the price» (Good)
- Fin standard men det blev lite påfrestande att några bodde i allrummet/köket.» (Good)
- The location was great. The standard could have been better but I had expected worse so I was very satisfied.» (Good)
- A bit crowded, but a good location.» (Good)
- Missdd an own room to work independently with my project. And next time, make sure that there is an internet connection available!» (Good)
- Boendet var generellt sett väldigt bra, dock är det påfrestande att aldrig kunna stänga om sig, vilket blir fallet när man är fyra personer som delar sovrum.» (Good)
- The appartment was great however the owners of the house wasnt that great.» (Good)
- great houses» (Very Good)

- More expensive to live there than I thought. Contrary to Berkeleykommittens advice, it would indeed have been possible to live in San Francisco without a car. I could have saved around 10000SEK by renting my own room in a shared flat, and skipping the car and going by bus/tram/caltrain/bart instead.» (To some extent)
- Mitt eget fel att den sprack lite grann. Det blir väldigt lätt att man går ut och äter mer än hemma t.ex» (To some extent)
- The dollar was a little bit higher than when I applied but in general like expected.» (To some extent)

19. What do you think should be improved for the next exchange?

- no comment»
- See Q9 above.»
- More proper accomodations, one should at least have a bed to sleep in when paying roughly $ 2000 for two months!!»
- Maybe eetter scheduling beforehand»
- More time at Stanford. More information about what accomodation options there are and the costs of these options. »
- The class at Stanford. Maybe have different teachers as the class at Berkeley had. Different subject each week.»
- Packa ihop kurserna mer. Det kändes meningslöst att vi hade nästan två veckor ledigt i mitten. Lägg isådana fall kurserna under 5 veckor och låt var och en bestämma om man vill stanna längre. »
- The exchange program must be left, it was awesome. Best summer ever.»
- If possible, better accomodation, I think more space and privacy would give a much better experience. Also more free-time, not so much home work.»
- The most important thing is to keep running the exchange program since it was a great experience overall.»
- I think the berkeley committee should consist of different kinds of poeople, I don"t think tou should select a group of friends to constitute the whole committee.»
