Positives: Firstly, I think the course covers the most important aspects of the corporate world. It is very practical and experimental in its approach. We are given assignments and projects for each of the subjects which help us learn in a practical manner. Also, there is a lot of collaboration with industry experts for academic projects and also through workshops and convocation speeches giving the students a sneak peak into the professional world.

Negatives: Personally, I feel that the course has been organised in a very good manner. However, more professional connections and placement opportunities can be provided for graduating students. Sometimes the course load is too much and therefore I would advise incoming students to plan their schedule accordingly.

My advice to future students is: I would suggest the incoming students to have an open mind. Though you might question the course planning in the beginning you will definitely understand the intricacies and detail that went behind planning the coursework by the end of second semester. Also, make good use of the computing resources and the knowledge that the world renown professors from CMU will share with you.

On the positive side, the course is very rigorous and you learn a lot from professors in Adelaide and Pittsburgh.

The negative side is that many courses require too many hours allocated on assignments

My advice to future students is: Live nearby the campus and make sure you are mentally ready for the challenge.
