- Though the home exam came as a bit of a shock, I hadn"t expected so much time would have to be spent on it. With 2 other exams, it was stressful. For someone taking only 2 courses, it would probably be more reasonable.» (Adequate)

- The lectures in this course were not good at all. The subject itself was not bad, but the teachers managed to make it highly uninteresting. Doesn"t the course administration wonder why there were so few people attending the lectures? If a course is held on English, one would think that a minimun demand from the course administration is that the lecturers should be able to speak English rather well, apparently not. It was an absolute pain to sit and try to understand what some of the lecturers said. Unacceptable! It is not enough to be highly educated in one"s field of expertise. When it comes to teaching, one has to have some educational skills as well.» (Poor)
- Bad lectures/lecturers (mostly very uninspirational), Bad english from most lecturers. This course doesn"t seem to a basic level course.» (Poor)
- It did not include what I thouht it would after reeding the description. It had nothing to do with my education (väg och vattan). It should not be recomended to students from V. I think it required more economic knowledge than I had. » (Poor)
- not very interssting and kinda worthless for my education...» (Fair)

18. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The project work, perhaps emphysize it to a larger extent since it in my opinion was the most interesting and rewarding part of the three assessments. »
- Doing the project report in groups, and being able to freely choose the topic to work on.»
- group project»
- The project in groups»
- The group project»
- The group prodject»
- »
- Take Home exam and project»

19. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Im still not clear where the last 10% of the total grade will come from... Project = 30%, reflection report=10%, take home exam =50%. Also i think that clearer instructions as to grades need to be applied, is it necessary to answer all 3 questions on the take home exam for all grades? »
- If possible: the lecturers. »
- The whole concept of that everyone must read a MTS-course. I don"t think MTS is important to read, I dont understand why we must read it.»
- Changing the individual exam into short test for every 2nd week. Question regarding the concepts and posibilities i guess could be relevant.»
- Consider making this an advanced level course, most students lack knowledge in economics and social science at this level, which makes this course very hard and the students don"t learn very much. At least give some basic information and examples in either course litterature or lectures.»
- Less lecture concentrated on ICT»
- I don"t understand why so much had to be about ICT. If it had been about different branches it would have been much more interesting»
- I think the main focus of the course was economy and I think it would be better if there were examples from different businesses. Thats why I think I learned the most from the group-project, were you chose the subjekt yourself.»
- Should grade the oral presentation as well, maybe can let it be 5% of the total grade.»

20. Additional comments

- Overall it is very difficult to evaluate the amount of work needed for certain grades in the course, when the exam is handed out, you still have no clue as to the previous work has generated in terms of grade. »
- Erik Bohlin should learn to stick to the course material and not bring up random stories. »
- Having a short test at the start of the lecture on the previous concept discussed on the class. This is going to help with broadening the knowledge of the class instead of just reading 1-3 papers for the indivdual/home exam.»
