Personal comments
I would apreciate more papers during the course instead of a big paper in the end. Having all exames in one period of time is not good when it becomes quite stressful.

Overall
I was studying economy and finance  just before the 'iron curtain' fell in Soviet Union. Most teachers were the old camp , however, Marketing course was tought by Mr Fortins who himself was involved in one of the first semi- private companies. This was awesome  - finally you could learn the during the day and implement  the same during afternoons.  most students from my group was involved in some private initiatives.

Personal comments
I attended courses in english and in latvian. At my home university in sweden i have attended a lot of courses in english so I feel sequre with the language. Latvian on the other hand i usually use just for speaking and writing letters, but i did not have any dificulties following the courses. It was a good experience that boosted my self-esteem.
