In a retrospective review, I liked (and disliked) the following courses most:
- Top 2
- Project: Global Consulting Project (MBA page / Example of Project Deliverables)
- Core Corporate Governance by Professor Rau
- Next 3
- Elective: Philosophy in Business by the Faculty of Philosophy
- Elective: Behavioural Finance by Professor Rau
- Elective: New Venture Finance by Professor Randy Haykin, who comes from SV
- Cost Management and Control
Yet, satisfaction with a course does not necessarily mean a good result ...interestingly and sadly they are barely correlated (r=0.16).
|Marks seems almost irrelevant to how I am stimulated by or satisfied with courses.|
*Satisfaction is defined as an average score (1-10) between intellectual stimulation and personal fit to a lecturer; a relative mark is comparatively scaled based on my personal range between highest and lowest marks.
However, marks are approximately 40% determined by (in most cases) collaborative group works.
|One example of how collaboration is included in marks (NB: weighted total of course depends on elective choices)|
When you compare three terms, interestingly, the first term, Michaelmas, was more individualistic, while the last term, Easter, required a lot of class participations. On a different note, the second term, Lent, was the busiest term as there were a lot of group assignments while preparing for the coming GCP. However, when busy you learn a lot.
In my opinion, Michaelmas courses also should (and could) have engaged students more, to set up a pace of studying individually (yet for me this was good as I skipped some to join courses and events in different departments of the Uni).
