    UNSW Subject Reviews.

    FYI, MGMT1001 has been dumbed down since prior, it had a reputation as being the wam killer. From this semester's LIC: MGMT1001 students did very well. For this course, the S1 average mark was 70.26% (remember a credit is a good mark at UNSW!). Furthermore, we had 37% of the students obtain a...
