FIN 465 481B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

He is (de-facto?) head of the Finance dept. He is passionate abt finance + research, and that shows in his courses. 465 is a research survey course. Requires LOTS of reading. Don't take if you're not truly interested. 481B is practical and detailed and has small classes (3 kids in mine), so attendance is key. I recommend him to any serious student.

FIN465 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Only take a class with him if you are interested in the subject. If that is the class, you will learn a lot. Many times, he is hard to understand, but tries to get you to understand it. He is helpful during office hours. Everyone in the class gets A's and B's, but the amount of work is a lot. Overall, a good professor, but not an easy one.

MGMT505 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is Indian with strong accent, boring class, difficult to follow his concept and understand things. He did not want to curve, just made it 1 or 2 points. Try hard, if can, please avoid taking this class. Very hard test, try to practice with old exams. 2 midterms and 1 final. Make you feel like headache. Watch out. Finally got B+

FIN320 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Great teacher! He really wants you to understand the concepts and will assign a lot of reading to make sure you get it. Will deviate from the lesson, but I definitely learned a lot, and if you are serious about it, he is a great teacher. The tests, though tough, are pretty straightforward as long as you study the material.

BUS01 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He spent the time rambling about irrelevant topics and when it came time for the exams no one knew what to study. After our final he announced that he had taught an entire concept incorrectly,and continued to say that the overall performance on that exam was very poor. He'll help you, but only if you can ever catch him in his office hours.

FINNA Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is one of the best profs one can ever have. Strives to explain fundamentals and its application rather than bookish knowledge. Very helpful in/outside the class. Gives a lot of extra readings so students learn financial concepts and current issues beyond textbook. Will be behind your every step if you work hard, will leave you if you don't.

CorpFin Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

The best if you have the guts to really know strategic finance. This guy works on building instincts - the only ones who do not like his course are dimwits who won't make it too big in finance anyways.

FIN324 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I don't like finance at all, but he was truly a great professor. He loved the subject matter and treated finance as a science, which is what motivated me to learn. His class wasn't about making money, it was about applying theories to different things in life. It's a shame most other SoM professors make their classes seem like one long sad joke.

probably the worst SOM professor ive seen yet. the man doesnt want to teach, he just wants to ramble for an hour and a half and thats exactly what he does. if you can take this class from some one else, do so. and the textbook is just as bad as he is so you cant even teach the stuff to yourself.
