"Get ready to read" "Better Like Group Projects" "Papers? More like novels"

I took him for MHR 365- Leadership Development (3 cred) and have to say that I've never invested so much energy into a class like this. The work was simple easy- case studies, readings, diaries, group project- HOWEVER it was so overwhelming because the assignments were long (papers novels to write) and there was always hw for the class!

"Better Like Group Projects" "Assignments galore"

I studied my butt off and could tell you all the ins and outs of OB, but that wouldn't matter because it matters if you know the tricks of his tests. When the first lectures were all clicker questions I thought it was a joke. AVOID this class at all costs. Oh and the real kicker- your exam essays are graded by an undergrad- awesome.

"Tough Grader" "Assignments galore" "Tests are tough"

Loren seems to genuinely want his students to do poorly. He does not care at all. The tests are impossible even though the material is actually fairly straightforward. The questions are paragraphs long and extremely unclear. The assignments are not too bad but the grading practices are very unclear. Seems impossible to well in this class.

"Assignments galore" "Tests are tough"

He has illogical rules and regulations. The content should be easy to understand, but he overcomplicates pretty much everything. The TAs were responsive and friendly, but the grading practices were completely arbitrary and I would have no idea why I was getting points off.

"Better Like Group Projects"

Loren is a horrible human being and an even worse professor. It is deeply saddening that he is employed by a highly regarded academic institution like Madison. He is unhelpful, rude, disrespectful, and unorganized. His tests and grading is VERY subjective. His class material is filled with grammatical and spelling errors.

"Assignments galore" "Better Like Group Projects" "Lectures are long"

Most ridiculous class I have ever taken. Don't expect to learn about how to handle things in the real world workplace, instead expect to try and memories countless worthless theories and things made up by CEO's with nothing better to do. The class is over the top and the website has so many documents that it is impossible to navigate effectively.

Very poorly organized. Study all the time and try on the assignments. Even though the material seems easy, the tests are incredibly specific and every assignment gets curved. So difficult to get a good grade.

DO NOT take this class if you don't have to. Poorly organized and too much work for a 3 credit class.

For a 3 credit class there is waayyy too much work. Online webinars are 2hours each (mostly him reading slides) and worst of all a huge group project. *Course content seems easy and straightforward but the test ?s are very subjective and difficult* If possible do not take the class!!! With the amount of work required it should be atleast a 5 cr.

"Better Like Group Projects"

Genuinely a terrible experience. Expects you to put waaaaaay too much time into this class for a 3 credit, mandatory, entry level business course. There are talking textbook webinars (1 or 2 per week) that last around 2hrs that he expects you to watch that are mostly filler and that is addition to regular lecture and a horrible group project.

"Tough Grader"

Loren is a disgrace for everything the Wisconsin School of Business stands for. Loren's webinars are ALWAYS longer than what he promises. Includes several YouTube links in each one in which he may ask 1 question on the exam about a stupid detail. He is condescending, arrogant, and rude. Look and count his "poor" reviews. Absolutely embarrassing.

"Clear grading criteria" "Papers? More like novels" "Big time extra credit"

I took the online class. Grade comprised of two easy 500-word writing assignments each week (changed since), two exams, and the simulations. The exams are 3000 word: go over and include everything hitting the word limit. Read the cases before exams - lots of specific Qs. Lectures online, long, and boring. Take notes during. 25pt ExCr bump helps!

"Tests are tough" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Tough Grader"

Loren is a very smart guy. He knows management stuff very well but he is not very good at teaching. There is no textbook for the class, and you would think that it is good but IT IS NOT!!!! The textbook is substitute with VERY LONG videos of him talking. Don't take this class if you don't have to, take it online or somewhere else!!!!

"Get ready to read" "Tough Grader"

Lectures are very vague. Exams do not encourage thinking, just memorization. Little guidance for group projects. Everything in this module is just bad.

MHR is terrible subject matter and Loren Kuzuhara is a terrible teacher. Memorize the text and regurgitate information to get good grades on his asinine exams.

"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.

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.

"Would take again" "Hilarious" "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.
