- To little information from the lectures - it was really hard to know what to study for the exam!! » (Small extent)

- They should have made it clearer that there was no formal grading on the project. I spent countless amount of hours correcting people"s English, and it turned out it was all in vain, since it wasn"t graded at all. Waste of time.» (Large extent)
- The projects were to massive, next year I suggest that the students only compares two companies. Then put the presentation/opposition one week earlier and let them work with the report after the opposition, how are you else going to learn anything from it? (Alternatively, have written oppositions and then presentation a week after.)» (Large extent)

Genomsnitt: 3.53 (bidrar till totalt genomsnitt/jämförelseindex)

- I would NOT recommend this course to anyone. Most of the time I felt stressed and confused because I didnt know what to focus on for the exam and the project was very diffused! (I mean just to figure out which analysis method to use? My group used two but some groups only used one??). Make the project work smaller next year and add more REAL LECTURES to the course!» (Poor)
- During the review on the last day, it was mentioned that this course was designed to be a general overview of Management Systems, rather than a detailed guide to how to implement Management Systems in detail. Why? Why would this be the case in a presumably accredited and internationally renowned Master program in Industrial Ecology? As a result, this class was extremely general and lacked discernible direction.» (Fair)
- I know see different things from a different prospective and have more knowledge about the hard and sometimes difficult work whintin a Company/society and ther environmental performance» (Excellent)

21. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Project, lectures»
- The seminars and chances to work and discuss things in smaller groups (not in lecture rooms)»
- The fish banks role-play and the project. There could also be a greater emphasis on the project. »
- Role play, projects»
- Henrikke!»
- The project, workshop and seminars should be preserved next year»
- examshould measure what has been t»
- The Fish Bank Role Play!»
- Groupwork!»

22. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Length of the exam: really not enough time to write the exam.»
- There should be more projects, or a project with more detail than the exam. The organisation of the course homepage could be improved»
- Give individual grade on the project, or be clear that it is not worth spending hours and hours on writing references properly, correcting grammar, organising layout, etc.»
- Some of the articles in the compendium repeated themselves. »
- Projects (as described in Q11)»
- The organization of the lectures (see comment 6)»
- more guidance for the project - If you are not going to be clear on what you want in the project, you cannot be upset when the project does not fulfill your expectations.»
- Everything else.»
- maybe the litterature seminars. It was good to have them because you were "forced" to read throuht the articles but might performe the seminar in Another way. But I have no suggestion on how.»

23. Additional comments

- Feel like this course would be better if there was no exams and the grades were based only on project work. I also would have like more seminars, and discussions in smaller groups.»
- Very limited time to write the exam. Wasn"t able to complete all the questions properly within time, not to say time for check.»
- A clearer structure and aim of the course is needed. There seemed to be no progression, just a bunch of lectures.»
- In overall - this course was terrible. The worst so far I have ever taken at Chalmers. Please change the layout of the course to next year. »
