Personal comments
It was really a waste of time. The four-course program, was and is useful to my academic and professional life. The exigence of the program is really low (for instance in microeconomics you only have to read a book and that's it. The teacher repeats this book word by word. In Econometrie the last exam we did it with ours books and notebooks. So evebody approved that exam).
