While preparing my material for a case discussion in International Strategic Management yesterday a class mate told me that the grades for our first two courses this semester had finally arrived. Finally! It’s always exciting to know how you have done, especially this time around when we’re talking about the very first courses of the master program. Personally i liked both these courses, but the one in WTO-law perhaps a bit more than the one in International Business Environment Analysis (coincidentally it was also the trickier one!).
Anyways, i was very happy to discover that i received top grades in both!
Onwards! 🙂 It feels great to have kicked the first master semester off like this, i have to say.
Our exam in Strategy is coming up this afternoon and that only means one thing for me; maximum exposure to my course material! 🙂
I don’t dare to say that i have good feelings about this one as i don’t want to jinx the bejesus out of my chances for a great grade, but i feel at some sort of ease. Here’s hoping for the right questions!
So here we are at the last week of school and studies before the summer break. The final exam (in financial management/accounting) is on Friday, and whether i like it or not i’m bound to the books more or less every available moment this week.
I would lie if i said that it’s all rosy, but hey, you don’t always love your job right? You do what you need to and that’s that.
Can’t wait to be sitting with the exam finally in front of me on Friday, really…
I’ve been walking around with this nagging feeling for a couple of days now that I need to update my blog…time to remedy that issue right now! The thing is that I’ve been quite busy as of late as the spring semester (and my first year at Uni!) is approaching its last exam. It feels so great to be at this point It has to be said…I soon have one year of university studies under my belt; fantastic!
Yesterday I started looking at the possibilities for one or two semesters abroad. This is something that has been part of my plans all along, to combine my studies at the school with a period of experience in the US (preferably). I would be leaving for the fifth and possibly the fourth term (if I get real lucky) which would give me all in all one year of studies in the US (whole of 2015). We’ll see, I need to do a lot more research with regards to the curriculum and so on still, but I do feel hopefully and very good about this prospect…stay tuned!
In other news I visited my extended family up in the north of Sweden at the beginning of this month, which was great and a damn lot of fun. I don’t get to meet my closest cousins all too often and I’m always very happy to get the opportunity. The weather was a fair bit more chilly than it was down here in the south (it even snowed when I left!), but it was great stuff anyways. I look forward to go back in the future, don’t know when though.
Right now I’m very anxious to get the results from our latest exam in financial management! We had the exam the evening before I left to the north and the results are due tomorrow…I just want to get the results and hopefully be able to count this one home and focus fully on the accounting course we are in right now.
That’s it for right now, time to get some evening grub!
This coming Tuesday we’re having our exam in microeconomics. The implications for me? Sitting inside all weekend exposing myself to utility maximization, consumer choice theory and everything related to it!
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this course for the most part, now that the exam is closing in it doesn’t feel quite as great though…but that’s usually true for most courses i’ve discovered.
I’ve just completed one of the old exams that our professor put on the web, and now i deserve a break. Gonna leave this small apartment for a while.
So 2014 is up and running and it’s back to business as usual at school. Our current course is an introductory course in macro economics which started in the begining of December and during our two week Christmas break from scheduled classes, which in all honesty set me back a bit. It has taken some effort to get back to it again, but nevertheless i feel optimistic about the exam on Friday (13:30 to 19:30 which is a pretty crazy schedule for a Friday! ;-))
We had the presentation of our project in this course earlier this week as well, which went pretty well. Me and and a study buddy of mine were handed the task of analyzing the Swedish government debt from a right wing perspective, and suggest ways of administrating it in the future. Fun and educational for sure (possibly only for aspiring economists though ;-))
