MGST Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B+
"Tests are tough" "Participation matters" "Tough Grader"

His lectures are a waste of time and he goes on and on about his personal experiences and the deals he got on his company. He is very condescending and likes to pick on people. Its funny he has a degree in zoology and business.

MGST 217 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A
"Lectures are long"

On the discussion board, Cam only answers your questions with more questions. His lectures are pretty boring. He can be condescending. If you don't give the right answer in class he says "NO." You don't necessarily need to go to class but make sure you answer the top hat questions. MGST was VERY unclear about the participation mark:ask! but not Cam

MGST 217 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B

He's a really friendly prof. Assignments are straightforward. Going to class would help get the top marks but isn't really necessary. You can do okay without.

"Participation matters" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Assignments galore"

Overall not a bad prof. Cam's expectations from you are pretty clear and so are his instructions. He is ready to help if you need him during lab, but on the discussion board he is very careful not to give away answers. Tests are pretty fair, except a few tricky questions. Very beneficial course with good practice of the studied concepts.

"Lectures are long" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Assignments galore"

Cam's lectures can by dry and dragging sometimes, but he's not TOO bad. He does manage to go through the slides and relate all the business terms to real life situations. If you attend lab sessions and do your assignments diligently, you'll do well in the course. The lessons are SUPER important, as you will be using Excel in a lot of future jobs.

"Assignments galore" "Lectures are long"

I found Cam a bit condescending and wow his lectures were boring. That said, he meant well and did try to connect the class content back to real life situations. There are weekly assignments and some take a lot of time. Attending the labs is necessary, while the lectures are only helpful. I would personally avoid taking another class with him.

MGIS 459 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A-
"Gives good feedback" "Would take again" "Assignments galore"

Tough and demanding, but the skills you obtain will become invaluable. Not one of those classes where you memorize and regurgitate. This class requires you to proactively apply the concepts you learn through trial and error (like most coding). Assignments are time consuming. Highly recommend to those in FNCE or looking to improve their excel skills

"Assignments galore" "Participation matters" "Gives good feedback"

Cam is not qualified to teach Analytics, Programming (VBA), and Data Science. Zoology + Psychology + MBA qualify you to teach data sci? Nice person, awful prof. Recycles slides, shares with other profs. You pay for each course, but get taught the same entry level crap in each. No useful technicalspecific details or real world xp

Cam definitely comes off as condescending when you ask for help, and he often just asks you a question in response to your question which is useless. He isn't very clear when instructing lab sessions, he expects us to know things we have never encountered as first years (it used to be a 3rd year course). This class made me realize I hate business.

MGST 217 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B+

Content is really easy, but the grade scale is really high, I got an 89 but it amounted to a B+. Textbook wasn't really used but it came in a pack with the SGMA 217 book so pretty much forced to buy it... Cam is a goof. The whole course is centred on his company...

Boring class but with helpful tips regarding Microsoft Office. Attending class helps a lot with assignments, labs are boring. Responds to questions in a clear manner but sometimes comes across as a bit condescending.

Recommend taking this class with Cam. If you attend all your lectures, he walks you through the majority of your assignments. He tries to engage everyone in class discussion, is very approachable, and wants his students to succeed. All exams were very fair.

This class was absolutely brutal. Cam made it even worse. He is incredibly condescending & treats everyone like incompetent kindergardeners. Least favourite class by far. Grading scale is ridiculously high.

Cam is a great prof, very approachable. Answers a lot of questions in class and helps out with a lot of the homework assigned mostly in class with class time to work on with groups or in pairs.

MGIS 559 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Cam is a good guy. Very helpful and seems genuinely interested in students. MGIS 559 is a tough course if you dont have VBA experience. Lots of assignments that can take up to 40 hours. No midterm or final. Very possible to get high marks in the course.

Cam was actually a pretty good prof. I took the class in the spring which i think is ideal because the workload is substantially less in comparison to the fall/winter semesters. Cam is pretty flexible and helpful if you need help.
