Good lecturers and interesting course units. However, I would like more modules were you use tools, softwares and programmes which are used by real accountants and analysts. There were no use of Excel software, Bloomberg or other accounting and finance programmes, which is unfortunate as it could give us students an edge when we apply for graduate jobs. I also wish we were in the same seminars and tutorials, as it would make it easier for us students to get to know each other. I also wish there were more possibilities to interact with the students in the seminars or lectures through workshops where we solve real life cases or problems. read more

To be honest, I'm not very satisfied with the teaching online for my first year due to the bad quality of online leaning. I hope the teaching can improve in my second year. read more

Overall, a pretty decent course contents-wise. I feel however it's lack of organisation is its major problem. Because of that, much of the work is crammed together, which causes overall learning to suffer. read more
