One of the best professors I've had so far. Really puts an effort to make students understand theory and intuition of material. Always come to class prepared, you'll understand the class material much better.

Excellent professor!! He made AFM 271 so much clearer since nobody had a clue about CAPM. He makes sure you understand what your doing and that your not a number cruncher. One of the best profs at SAF no doubt. You'll love his energy and accent in class!

At the start he is very scary but then you start to understand why he is doing it and he actually cares you learn. By far the best course in the school so far for career and usefull to make sense of accounting and finance

First off: british accent!! You can tell he loves to teach as he really makes sure all his students understand his material. He tries to make a connection between the material to the real world so you can actually apply it. He hates when people are late and he will actually call you out on it. Other than that, one of the best professors!!

BEST PROF I HAD SO FAR. He is one of the few profs that genuinely cares about our understanding. He focus on the intuition of finance - made sure that we understand everything being taught, which is HIGHLY RELEVANT TO THE REAL WORLD. Make sure to be on top of each lecture contents, and don't be late!!

Great Prof! He tries very very hard to make sure you understand the material. His lectures are interesting and very easy to understand. HATES people being late. It is a very good idea to look at his notes and do the questions before class.

Great instructor. Can be intimidating at times but just BE SURE you are prepared for class (doesn't take long). Demonstrates concepts well with intuitive and simple examples. Prepare to be picked on but it's for your own good. Loving the widgets and the whole damn firm.

Best professor I have seen at the school. A bit intimidating at times. Prepare for class cos he makes you talk. He really knows finance and seems to really care whether you get it or not. I liked how everything was relevant to newspaper articles. But he is NOT HOTT!!

Amazing professor. Teaches you things you'll take with you in the future. Turned a number heavy course into a practical way to understand finance. Go to class. The textbook is not necessary. Make sure you understand the concepts covered in class. Really made me more interested in finance. Course was extremely easy because of the way it was taught.
