The education was absolutely delivering a high standard as promised. In my class 80% of the curriculum was especially focused from a construction point of view where we basicaly counted how many nail there were in a wall. We were all asking for more focus on leadesrhipskills and PM as the main focus of the program was project management. A very short time, all together 3 weeks maximum, was utilised for the main purpouse oi the ducation, PM and leadership, and the rest was spent on learning about the head teachers own company set up. Did not learn much and in the end we all have to fulfill our contracts with shitty pay and no payed vacation for a year, otherwise you end up owing them 150 000 SEK for learning how to count nails in a wall... Not recomended! Also, the majority of the class sorted their own positions after we graduated as academic work failed in rounding up enough interviews. However, some ppl have now had the minimum gaurantee wage for 6 months without even attending a single inteview after the program. So if you dont get hired, dont worry they will pay a pretty decent wage for not doing anything. However, all student are very ambitious so this was offcourse a great disappointment for those not getting hired straight away. However, if you are looking for a career, there are many other options out there! Some ppl ended u in nice positions as project managers, however lacking qualifications in scrum etc since the curriculum didnt focus on that very much at all.. All the group rooms where always taken by staff or classes doing tests, so no place for quite down time woith your studies.. Not great as you where barly allowed to leave the premises as they threatned to kick you out if you didnt stay in the builing from 8-17.
