"Tough Grader" "Get ready to read" "Tests are tough"

Probably the worst professor at the Business School. Not only did I not learn a thing, his tests are the worst thing you could possibly suffer through. Almost every single question is subjective and unclear. Even if you know the material backwards, his test questions are still difficult because he is so ambiguous.

"Assignments galore" "Better Like Group Projects" "Tough Grader"

Horrible class, even worse teacher. Loren spends too much time going off on tangents and his tests questions are very abstract and subjective. The group project is horrible designed and he gives very little assistance.

"Hilarious" "Would take again" "Inspirational"

Loren is an excellent professor. He genuinely cares about his students & wants them succeed in the real world. He provides many tools & opportunities for students to succeed. Although his class is hard and may seem like a lot of work, it's challenging in a good way. Also, the consulting project we do in his course is very relevant and applicable.

Terrible professor.... The entire class is so vague. His teaching his vague. The assignments are vague. And there are LOTS of assignments. He expects students to do so much work, but doesn't give any direction or knowledge to do so. Bad, bad bad.

Absolutely horrible. Pointless assignments, that he doesn't even grade until the last few weeks of class. Feedback is basic and vague, just like him. Expects a lot with very little direction, rubrics are generic. Don't recommend taking this class with him.

The vast majority of assignments weren't even graded until after the final exam. Exam was needlessly tedious and grades were needlessly harsh. I don't recommend taking this class, at least not with Loren.

This class was one of the worst classes I've ever taken. The material was incredibly vague and the exams were on trivial specific material. I took this online and it is incredibly time consuming and is filled with busy work. Loren was unhelpful and did not grade most assignments until the last two weeks of class.

Two assignments per week, about 500 words each. The first assignment I guess is somewhat useful as you answer a question on course material but the second is totally useless, you reply to a classmate. Midterm and simulation both time consuming. The simulation is a ton of work so start early. Final is extremely hard.

horrible class. final exam is impossible even with studying hard. take this class somewhere else if you can. there is no group project, just an online simulation and paper (be very specific and link to topics) don't watch the podcasts-read the transcripts instead and just seem like you care about the subject and you'll get 100% on the weekly papers

Loren is an absolute terrible professor. His exams cover way too much material, and the little details are overly important. The exam questions are completely subjective, half the time you don't know what he is asking. Do not take.

Useless class. 1000 words of writing per week. 3000 word midterm. Haven't done simulation yet, but, based off past experience, it will suck. If you put in time, you will do well. Podcasts are not necessary to watch, however. A lot of common sense. Take somewhere else online over the summer. UW-Whitewater, La Crosse and others offer it online.

I got an A, but the course load and materials are ridiculous. Study the practice exams and you will be golden, but don't expect much help from him. Lecture is mandatory through iClickers.

MHR 300 Online Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

FILLED with busy work. Expect AT LEAST 7 hours per week listening to the online lectures and writing feedback assignments. Exams are a nightmare and recorded "how-to" podcasts consist of Loren reading the available "how-to" document word-for-word for over an hour. His podcasts seem very unprepared. Prof.Dunhams podcasts are better, but still long.

The good quality reviews on this professor must be a joke...Loren is by far the most arrogant, annoying, and disrespectful teacher I've ever taken a class with. This class is absolutely pointless and I am truly embarrassed to be a part of a business school that employs him.

This professor is terrible. The online course is terrible. You are forced to waste a bunch of money on these useless simulation things and the final exam is completely out of the blue. The grading on the final is ridiculous and Kuzuhara provides no organization for the course. I strongly recommend avoiding this course and professor if you can.

The workload for the class is ridiculous, but you do get to avoid the hectic class project. If you are willing to put the work in, you can do very well.

This was such an amazing class! Highly recommend it! This is a very intense workload for a 3 credit class, but it isn't that bad if you have a good group.
