I really loved this course and will definitely start looking for a job in this field! I don't know how it could be improved. The course feedback was very constructive; especially helpful were the tips for my referencing. My instructor, professor Christiansen was very fast correcting my assignments. The professor also returned my questions - I asked by email - very fast. I never felt I had to wait because I am an online student. Thank you professor!

Although, overloaded by my daily work and responsibilities, I have been enjoying reading the contents and working on this course’s assignments. The contents of the modules have been carefully selected in a way to add hands-on knowledge to participants. The assignments helped me grasp the message from the course and encouraged me to work on implementing it in my job. The instructor was meticulous in all the aspects of the assignment review. From content to grammar to formatting, I really benefited from the instructor’s positive approach to correct my texts.

I like the the way the instructor commented on the assignments and cared about me as a student. This was a course that gave me a lot of thinking. You think you know a lot about finance, but it is so much more than you think.

I liked my instructor’s explanations and enjoyed the course structure, variety of exercises, and possibility of speaking practices with the help of the school’s private English language forum for students.

The course was comprehensive. From my first assignment, the instructor did help orienting me through the important and missing components of my marketing strategy. This made me progress and develop a comprehensive product marketing strategy throughout the remaining assignment. This course was one of the courses I enjoyed very much, it helped me master the different aspects of product marketing. If one did seriously try to market his product and had no success, or sales did not meet the ultimate potential of the products, he needs to attend this course.

Consistent follow-up from the university’s team (dean, instructors, advisory office, registrar office) were beyond expectations. The advisory office support was great. The curriculum has changed my conceptual ideas about managing real life. Looking forward to complete my master’s degree with Aston American University. Thanks you all.

Up to now, this was the most enjoyable course. It enriched me and opened my eyes to social responsibility. I am from a country (RSA) where we still need to do more to comply to corporate social responsibility, therefore, this to me was excellent. I believe the instructor was fair.

Aston American University is an excellent university to study English, during the course of my course, I felt supported and guided in the best way, always ready for any questions. My experience has been quite good, I have acquired new knowledge, and I feel more prepared to speak and write the language. I want more people to join this course because it really is worth it and would be a unique opportunity.
