Reflection

Lectures were very inspiring and interesting, although the form differed among lecturers. I did not like the timing of the lecture as I was very sleepy most of the time. Nevertheless, I enjoyed them mostly. My favorite part was the macro data analysis, for which coursework also had to be submitted. I think I have done it right, although I felt I could've invested more time into it

Universal skills gained:

  • High-level use of MS Excel
  • Fortnightly preparation for tutorials (time-management and study habits)
