No textbook copy available in the library. Students are "forced" to buy textbook. Very strict attendance. Exam covers lots of details of the course. The workload is too much for a GE.

I am a year 3 BBA student and this course have a number of overlapping concepts with the CB2300 Management course so it is not difficult for me. It may be difficult if I had this in year 1. Toni is fun, nice, responsible and a great teacher. I find her classes interesting and have something to learn each time. Lecture usually lasts for the first 2 hours. The last hour is for group classwork and Q&A. I do not find the exam very difficult (again, because I learnt around half of them in my management courses before). Students from non-BBA may find the terms and theories difficult. Need to read the textbook for exam.

Toni is a nice and responsible teacher, however the amount of theories and concepts needed to memorize for this course is overwhelming. Toni makes everything sound easy by only covering parts of the textbook, and she tells us interesting stories in class, which IS fun and relaxing. However, she also stresses the importance of reading the textbook. She tells us that it is a must to have access to the textbook, whether you are to buy it or borrow it from the library (I think there are 1-2 copies in the library? Anyway, I bought the textbook.) For a GE course, it is quite ridiculous to cover almost everything in a business textbook (she omitted 1-2 chapters as I remember), and there are many keywords and concepts to understand and remember. I did revise, EVERY chapter required, without complaints (errrr dunno how I am to complain anyway), although this IS quite ridiculous, given that this is a Level 2 GE course, but, as the exam was partly MC and partly long question:
Part A: 60 Multiple choice Questions (50%) - compulsory
Part B: Case study: 2 questions (30%) - compulsory
Part C: Long essay question: Choose 1 out of 2 (20%)
...in other words, if I did not "tip zhung", and revise the associated concepts COMPREHENSIVELY for the 30% case study concepts and the 20% long essay question, then I will GG for 50%! Dunno if this makes sense, but this was how I felt after the exam. Well, but I guess the real problem isn't about the exam format, but the ridiculous amount of concepts needed to revise for a GE course.

Everything is nice except for the exam. The difficulty is more like a core-course. I think GE course should not have any attendance policy. Attendance counts for participation marks as well. Fortunately, the group assignment is manageable. This course is difficult for non-business students like me.

Toni is a responsible and knowledgeable lecturer. The course is not that difficult if you are not overloaded (I have 21 credits and not enough time for exam revision). Class exercises are interesting but need to prepare before class. Attendance requirement is strict. Exam questions are reasonable but need to revise textbook.

The classes are not very difficult but exam is really difficult. Powerpoint is uesless for exam revision. There is no textbook available in the library so students are forced to buy a textbook. Instructor spent too much time telling stories.

相比其他elective,功課量實在不多,只有group assignment, classwork, exam,英文好一向是拿好grade關鍵,每一科如是,無乜特別。覺得自己英文水平有限,多讀textbook便可。

我個人 prefer take attendance,最少不會miss重要的point,Toni會特別提醒那些內容會exam考的。這科比想像中有趣,Toni不會照讀powerpoint,又可以同group一齊做classwork,三個小時好快過。

雖然只有 group assignment, 但每一堂有計分的 classwork,而且每星期都要take attendance及準備 case,考試難度跟一般core無分別,需要很多時間溫習,我無買textbook所以exam中伏。

This course is surprisingly much more interesting than I originally think of. I am a senior student with much more boring ethics courses before. Toni's classes are very interesting and enjoyable. Need to prepare for ethic dilemma cases every week but there is no individual assignments. I don't think Toni's powerpoints are useless but they are not enough for exam revision. The exam is not difficult as long as you attend all the classes and do the classworks seriously.

Reasonable workload with friendly lecturer. This is a small class with exchange and senior students. Lecturer likes to share her personal stories, which are interesting. Powerpoint is useless for exam. Must read the textbook in great details.

Instructor is very helpful and friendly. The group discussions allow us to apply concepts. Instructor also gives weekly group reports. The workload is ok with no individual assignment (only group assignments). Must attend class to get participation and attendance marks. Exam is a bit demanding but reasonable. Need to read textbook in details to get A.

I am not a BBA major and thus, I found this course quite challenging, especially there are a number of management theories involved. My team members claimed a majority of the theories are taught in their year 1 management study and thus, this course is easy in their eyes. (Two of my BBA groupmates received A) For an ethics course, it is a nice surprise because the classes are quite interesting. Toni is a very responsible and knowledgeable lecturer. Early revision is a must if you are not a BBA major. She has very good memory and thus, don't try to fool her around with the attendance, or sign for others. You will receive an official warning. (also apply to illegal copy of textbook). Toni is a very kind and understanding lecturer unless you try to break any rule foolishly.

只有classwork
上堂大部分有解 有聽下 其實唔難做
上堂真係學到好多野 toni 非常有心教 落堂可搵佢解番一d唔識ge野
Break的時間toni也會搵你傾計 非常親切
只有groups project 同exam
Groups project只要有留心聽一聽 用番上堂學ge野加解釋番小小就得 太仔細 反而有負效果 !
最緊要搵好gpmate
Exam不難 本人只是溫一溫每堂抄的note 便能答到約7成的題目
最衰我懶 唔係a+並唔難
!GE想拎a+必選 !
付出與收穫乘正比
我愛Toni!!

Let me start off by saying that my final grade is not reflective/conclusive of how easy it is to attain A range in this course. I'm a final year student so I applied this course just to fulfill my credit units, I had way too much workload for my core courses (meaning that I didn't really care about this course, I just revised last minute and did my part in the group works). With these being clarified, I'll tell you more about the course below.

1. One group presentation, one group report (2000ish words group essay), one examination (closed book; MCs + Qs). Workload is light even in the eyes of a deadline fighter.

2. The presentation and essay are on the same topic (pre-assigned), which is extracted from the textbook (each group will be assigned one "case study"). The topic is basically about the target company of the textbook case study, and each case study is at the end of each chapter, so you can imagine that it won't be hard to find the answers to the case study from the textbook.

3. You should buy the textbook (or print a copy, I don't care, but if you print it make sure she doesn't see it). The textbook is vital for revision (her powerpoints are intentionally crafted in a way that if you don't revise with the textbook, you'll probably screw up a lot of exam MCs.

4. Her powerpoints do overlap with textbook contents, BUT some items are not within textbook knowledge. The same applies to her in-class worksheets, which I will talk about later on.

5. ATTEND EVERY LESSON. Not that because she's a great teacher, it's because she hands out in-class worksheets (usually worked in groups i.e. your project group) and those are your attendance marks.

6. She usually dismisses the class 20 minutes earlier than scheduled. Because the last hour of the lecture is usually all about the worksheets so you're free to go after you've finished it with your group. There's a 20 minute break after the first hour of the class too.

7. When she says she wants every group to engage with the audience during the presentations, she MEANS IT. Try to preplan some questions for the crowd, play some videos and you're set.

8. It's not necessary to pay attention in class, unless you think that the topics are difficult. She won't really care if you work on your own stuffs, just don't be too obvious.

tl;dr
Generally an easy course with a light workload, but don't take this course if you plan to skip lessons (you have around 2 quotas for skipping but sick leaves don't get treated as valid excuses from the quota).

長話短說, 我B+係因為我final year太多野做所以咩都last minute做/溫. 如果你英文係ok既, 而你又可以每堂返去攞attendance分既話, 依科唔難攞A range. 我讀左4年city, 佢依科未係最容易, 但係講真, 真係算輕鬆. 如果你睇曬我上面抽野, 記住我提個d野, 同埋唔好好似我咁樣考試當日先溫exam + group project最後個日先得閒做, 咁你攞A應該無難度.

不要輕易將自己的DRAFT交給任何人,甚至同組嘅”FD”。本人就差D俾個所謂 “FD” K.O咗,抄左我essay 大部份內容又比我早SUBMIT,立即被TONI照肺。幸好有WHATSAPP證明我先做好,係對方主動要求,又不是我刻意幫他做,最終還我清白。但整件事由開會,對質,SUBMIT 證據等擾攘差不多成個月先有結果,影響心情之餘又浪費時間。個"FD"亦係WEEK10無故消失,嚴重影響GP,幸好有好嘅前輩GROUPMATE幫助。TONI覺得SHARE個DRAFT好容易鼓勵對方抄襲,我唔係好認同,不過最終亦非常感謝佢嘅公正,公平處理。作為FM,今次經歷係震撼教育,亦令我明白學生應有保護自己創作嘅責任。整體來講課程係輕鬆,無exam 同 quiz,學嘅野幾實用,但GROUPMATE 質素非常,非常,非常重要,以CITYU新仔我係非常的幸運,不過夾時間開會超有難度。兩位老師 (JANET係 Course Leader)亦好NICE,好有耐性處理我的麻煩,直得推薦!

我係ENGINGE FM,這科內容其實很有趣,不過英文真的非常有難度,同EXCHANGE或BBA一組有好處,特別係GP。TONI好FRIENDLY,解釋很清楚,只是EXAM真的很長,需早些溫習。

較其他ELECTIVE,這科是不錯的,功課不多,只是GP要慎選隊友,CLASSWORK差不多是送分的,不過考試包括CLASSWORK,走堂一定要問隊友攞COPY。這科有好多THEORY,無BUSINESS底嘅需早一點溫書。考試難度個人覺合理。TONI老師有趣及負責任,上堂不會悶,能學到新知識不錯!

不建議FM修讀 要有良好英文底 同相關經濟知識先好讀
上堂氣氛輕鬆 但要計出席率(唔出席一堂一定唔會有a 因為每堂都有classwork 計分)
最後有GP 記得要搵岩隊友 佔分超重
最後仲有exam 難度中等 但一定要溫書先答到LQ 同MC 本書見到都唔想溫
懶人絕對唔好報 btw toni 係一個好老師 可惜呢個課程對於一個ge課程黎講絕不是首選
拎到B 絕對係幸運

As an engineering student who has no background in business & management subjects, The Process of studying for the final exam was really very very tiring.

30% - participation, Classworks and attendance - Quite easy to get a full mark in that section! ( just attend all the classes, Do the basic classwork, read the very required case before the class in 15 mins)

40% - Project: not that difficult, just needs a great depth in reflecting the knowledge in the book into the assigned case for ur team.

30% - Final Exam: Very long exam, not difficult at all - not tricky-. It is just very detailed, needs unbelievable depth in the syllabus so that u can secure an A or an A+. So that u get an A in such an exam u need to read the chapters discussed in the class in details week by week, summarize them and study them and then revise them before the exam by 2 weeks or sth like that.

If you already a management student or a business student, The workload will be quite okay for you. Anyway, The Textbook is very much needed in this course so that u can score in the A range.

The Grading in such course is absolute:
85- 90% A-
90 - 95% A
95 -100% A+

I do NOT recommend that course to any student who has no background in business or management, The course is quite deep and contain concepts from criminology and psychology as well as Management and Business.

Anyway, The instructor is unbelievably helpful and responsible.

There is not much too day except the daily classwork and a group report. But the exam is quite difficult if you do not have a textbook. Toni is a very nice and responsible teacher.
