★ Module Review Year 2 Sem 2
Date: Tuesday, May 13, 2014 | Time: 5/13/2014 08:40:00 PM
Although I keep on telling people NOT to study Business at NUS, if you have to like you're forced by your parents/grades, then my review will serve as a guideline.
I took 5 business modules because of shitty preallocation of modules.
BSP2001: MAP OVERSEAS
Basically I only had fun during the tutorial, fantasizing about hunting my tutor who is a vampire "Supernatural style (c'mon the signs were there, pale, never go out in the sun, "ageless", good at economics) while my classmates drooled over him. The lecture was horrible because Prof Gao, the ex-girlfriend of the tutor, had horrible English after studying at UBC (university of a billion chinese). I can't understand a single shit.
FIN3101: Take if you want
Lecture was fast, tutorial was hard, but teacher was really good. Dr TAN. I learnt a lot about corporate finance, it was useful. The project was bad because of my teammates, not so much the format.
FIN3103: Never take
This was a elective. I thought it was going to be formatted into important laws/regulations to know, certain histories, but NO. Thanks to my WEIRDLY-NAMED PROF, it was more like she uploading 100 slides, then never using the slides or talk to us. She will scrawl in FADED MARKER inks all over our 8 whiteboards then erase them quickly. The project had no guidelines and she would check her nails during your presentation so it doesn't matter. Exams were hard because she will test you trivia. The prof herself is racist and LOVES CAUCASIANS. Like class debates, it's more like a class conversation between the prof and the caucasians.
MNO2007: MAP OVERSEAS
I had the "1-in-51" chance of actually getting in the same group as my friend because my tutor forced us to draw poker cards. The module just makes no sense. It requires you to write ESSAYS about your feelings every week for the lesson, then you must TALK CRAP and ACT LIKE YOU KNOW THE NEWS during class. The quiz was horrible. Whatever you learnt during class will not come up for the quiz. The quiz was some shit they found lying somewhere on the internet. I consistently scored 20 marks below average. The project was really TIME-CONSUMING and useless. You just have to know "video-editing skills" and "wit like a TV show script-writer" because I'm sure that's what university graduates are supposed to know. Oh, and you have to interview an IMPORTANT MANAGER for 1 hour and it doesn't matter what you ask, it only matters to hit the 1-hour mark. Needless to say I had to send expensive gifts to convince STRANGERS why they should let me interview them.
MNO2009: You won't die if you take
An ordinary module where you go for lectures and pay attention. Quizzes were pretty much what you learnt in lecture. Projects were useless again. But normalcy is something to be craved after all the other modules in BBA.
