- The sillabus was hard to read and to find the content of the text. A shorter text would have been preferable. The suggested references were good though.» (The goals are difficult to understand)

- It was not possible to get information about, what was wrong in the exam.» (No, not at all)
- I don"t know all the partial grades so I cannot tell precisely» (To some extent)
- I REALLY don"t like questions of the kind "Describe the 5C". They don"t test your understanding of the subject, but only to what level you have spent time memorizing buzzwords. Acronyms like that should be a help to remember and understand things - they should not themselves be the goal. In my humble opinion at least. » (To some extent)

- the leadership safari was far more interesting than the planning seminar, both in the preparation setting (more dynamic) and in the class discussion (more stimulating)» (Some extent)

- unfortunately for me it was just stressful and I did not learn much» (Small extent)
- 2-3 people in the group would be more adequate. It would also be a big help if the supervisor could give some guidance on what areas are suitable and what areas are not so suitable. She/he has a much bigger experience on what areas that are more easy to get information about than the group members and should communicate this. Once the group has decided on a certain area to investigate, it is hard to change, because of the time constraint, even if everyone knows it would be better to change to something more easy, like planning, for example.» (Small extent)
- The option to decide what to evaluate is excellent. Gives one the possibility to tweak the task to fit what I think I will need in the future.» (Great extent)

- It was not possible to get a feedback on the exams, regarding how it was corrected.» (Very poor)

Summarizing questions

15. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- repeating the important things over and over again! This was very good because than you actually keep the information in your mind.»
- Report, basic test»
- The project work»
- The project work»
- Project research wotk»
- the lectures and homexam»
- The research project work is reallu useful to deepen some themes that are interesting.»
- The group project»
- The structure of the course is surely straightforward and effective to learn the subject»
- The different part of the assessment and the subject»
- Its a good way to learn much and use it with the exam early in the course»
- the whole structure»
- The research project work»
- the goals and literature»
- The seminars, and the small test before the lecture to make sure everybody read the articles»
- Lectures, Loid is a really good lecturer.»
- Group work, home exam together with fellow student.»
- Some of the lectures. especially the one where david talks about the hospital. more examples in the lectures.»
- you guys are doing good, just maintain the same for the coming years as well»
- Seminars »
- The possibility to adapt the course content after interest and field of study.»
- Early basic test and the home exam.»

16. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- I think that the workload is quite heavy in this course, there are to many mandatory pieces in the course. We have an "exam" which you call a basic test, then a couple of seminars, then a quite extensive report has to be done and completing it all is an home exam. My opinion, make the parts a little smaller if possible. The positive with this structure is that you are forced to be active all the time, I was lucky that I passed all of the mandatory task on my first try»
- The lectures and the learning from the seminars could be improved»
- The basic test, it is really unrewarding to repeat bullet points without having the possibility of putting them in a larger context. »
- The basic test should be moved at least one week. It is not realistic to learn such amout of information in only two weeks. This results in only weak knowledge which you will fortget as soon as you go out of the exam room.»
- the short exam in the second week. i think the test should be focused more on understanding rather than just nomeclature»
- The way the research project work is organised. Indeed, it is far from fair to let people find a company by themselves, some Swedish have direct contacts but some others haven"t and it is rapidly a problem for all the group. This delay impacts the possibilities, the organisation and the time to realise and reach project goal through especially the report.»
- The initial home exam»
- the division of the marks among the different activities. seminars should be more important in the overall evaluation. The basic test is not so important as the home exam because is in the latter that you could show if you have understood the matter. »
- too many articles to read, and the theory is sometimes too much extent.»
- The work load becomes heavy when the project isnt running from the beginning, maybe more help getting started some how»
- the home exam may be clearer I think»
- Change the point distribution, because the current one is really bad since some of the activities did not honestly mean something else than waste of time. For example, the short test. Otherwise, I feel that the basic test is given a too big of a part of the point distribution since it is examined only two weeks after the course start. The purpose of examinations is to examine one"s learning at the END of the course, so thereby I feel the home exam and the research project work should be more than 60 %, for example 75 %. Then you have 25 % left, which could be distributed so the basic test is 20 % and the seminars are 5 %.»
- we did a partial exam at the very beginning, which was hard and whose scope at that moment was unclear. Moreover, the following weeks were free so we could have better distributed the workload, also considering the efforts required by the groupwork. »
- Studying the Project Management book and having the basi test in two weeks seems unreasonable for me. Some changes should be done for that.»
- More concise lectures, I think the information transferred could be fitted in less time.»
- The seminars could be differently organized so more discussion is encouraged. »
- It should be more clearly how exams are graded. During the short test on the literature it shouldn`t be possible to earn all points by riding down some headlines by using the iphone.»
- The aim and work structure of the orject could be mush clearer.»
- Less people in the research project group, 2-3 people would be better. The same amount of people in the two seminar groups - then it would be possible to work on the two seminars with the same people.»
- David should be more prepared. It"s ironic how much he talks about planning and is still so unorganised and unprepared for some of the lectures. »
- project is difficult to find, if it"s possible to have a list of industries that agree to help could be nice»
- The points assigned to the team work.»

17. Additional comments

- Become better reporting the results of the mandatory tasks»
- The project is one of the most important and profitable part of the subject. High contact with the companies.»
- asking to make a groupwork of the kind we had to was very pretentious and we had several problems, because nobody wanted to work with us»
- Research project: Students should be educated more to consider groupmate contributions to the project. I experienced hard time for my group as my contributions were all ignored by my groupmates which was so discouraging and hence finding the course as a bitter pill to swallow.»
- Over all a good course. Too big work load, too many small different things to think of. The research project should be given less weight - the only thing you practice in that is working with many people on an uncertain issue, and making phone calls trying to coordinate everything under time pressure. It would also be interesting to practice more group dynamics and leadership in groups, consciously, by doing exercises, instead of discussing it on a theoretical level in a seminar.»
- This questionaire should have been distributed before we got our results since it"s part of the grade. Now a lot of people won"t respond since they know that it wont matter in the grading of the course. »
- You really should give a grading summary for each student showing point results for the project, home exam and seminars respectively. The way it is presented right now is very poor (ie. just the grade and total points)»
