MGT 561 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Absolutely the worst. Doesn't seem to create any of his own curriculum, which should be considered academic fraud at the graduate level. Lectures are deadly boring

ECN 201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

So bad I actually considered changing majors. Canned curriculum straight from textbook publisher. Lectures were deadly boring and filled with his mindless self-promotion.

He is a terrible professor. He lectures for hours from powerpoint slides provided by the textbook company (which he is friends with and mentions several times). He offers only one point of view and references his blog often. His political views are very obvious.

Hey guys: This prof. conducts extremely boring classes! He is a complete waste of time. Wastes all his class time by talking about his blog posts. You guys might want to avoid his class.

BUS466 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I enjoyed this class. Homework was not extremely easy - it required time to do it. However, by doing homework, you get ready for your exam. I never even had to prepare for the exam beforehand: doing homework every time was enough for me. Wonderful professor. Others were complaining about the difficulty, but this is not high school. Grow up!

Awesome Prof. I learnt loads. Very cool and helpful. If ur course is not tough,u wont learn and it helped me great. So people grow up and stop whining. Great notes and really funny. Highly recommend to take a course as u are bound to learn. I was warned about strict grading, but said I wud learn a lot and I am totally satisfied. Ivy league material

Website dedicated to his stupid hobbies. In love with himself. Lives in fantasy world. Needs to get in touch with reality. has no sympathy for the common person's struggle. Hard to do when you are a fat spoiled out-of touch brat.

Ecn 360 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Big Jerk! I think he might be boarderline, if you know what I mean... He is extremely boring and seemed to have some build up frustration. He is practically useless when it comes to answering students questions. The exams arent that bad.

I agree he is the worse. just took the final and he handed out a study guide that was extensive and then asked questions on the exam from topics covered 5 weeks ago. What good was a stinking study guide. Someone should turn him in!!!!

Someone told me to rate this guy. I kind of agree about the consistency thing and have heard that some of my friends say that they decided not to major in finance because of this teacher. i have only had him for this class and I can see their point. Take Mehidian and avoid the problems.

He is not consistent with grading. He will take extra points off of exam questions while giving points to someone else for identical answers. I would think twice if you have him for a lot of classes and value your GPA. His speach about, "learning is better then the grade," is for the birds.

Think Twice. He grades hard and expects a lot. There are other teachers to consider. It may appear you are given a break in grading however, he grades harsh!!!

I had professor Perry for 3 different classes. He does a good job of clarifying the info. while still making the course challenging. Probably the best professor in the SOM.

I have had perry for 4 different classes. He is very knowlegeable. A very smart man. Class is dry. Tests are a bit difficult, and you may not get the best grades, but it willprep you for other classes. One if not the best instuctors at this school.

Perry is incredibly smart and explains things very clearly to his students. His class is kind of challenging but definitely not impossible. I think I think I may have learned more in his class than any other class at college.

Dr. Perry, This guy is ivy league school material. Of all the professors I have taken I have learned the most from Dr Perry. He always has something interesting to say about everything you are studying.Do not miss the opp to have this great professor.

Dr. Perry is pretty cool, very hard but gives good notes and applies it to real world situations, always says to get Wall Street Journal but never uses it. Pretty full of himself, see Dr. Perry plays the piano on his website.
