ENT526 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B

Worst professor ever. Entrepreneurship is supposed to be an inspirational course and he is absolutely took a huge dump on it. Exec. sum. assignment was a complete disaster, even though i abide by every single guideline and template. Oh and forget asking him for help, or even trying to negotiate your mark. He is a hard headed prof .

Bus 800 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Worst Prof ever. he does not really know what he is talking about. attendance is mandatory and he doesn't even know how to do attendance. Even if people came to class, he marks you absent because he quietly does attendance himself. His instructions are vague and hes terrible at asking for help with assignments. SWTICH OUT!

CENT526 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I am a 3.7 GPA student. This was the worst grade I received in my four years at Ryerson. Steve is unmotivated, unhelpful, distant. He is a disgrace to ENT526 which is suppose to inspire. He should never teach an online class, or any class. Steve if you are reading this, on behalf of your students, please stop teaching, you are absolutely terrible.

ENT526 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He doesn't care about students at all. He is very unclear in instructions, does not provide feedback (or very little). I have a GPA of 3.8 and this is the worst class I have ever taken. Other profs who teach this course are much more interesting and helpful. Steve is a disgrace to Ryerson and should reconsider his career path. Avoid at all costs.

ENT 500 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B-

He is not helpful at all. I did my assignment exactly the way that the past A+ paper he has post, but I receive a barely passing grade on my assignment. It takes forever for him to reply your email which no question has been answered. All I can say is do not take his class if you have a choice. Good Luck.

Bus800 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He's a really nice guy. The course in general has a heavy workload. He's really concise so just follow his exact instructions and you'll do fine.

Nice prof. Make sure to listen in class because he tells you exactly how he wants each section of the assignments done. Its important not to deviate from his instructions. The course itself takes a lot of work so be prepared.

BUS8-- 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 VERY VERY specific when it comes to his assignment. Follow all his instruction to the T. Didn't give that much instruction but follow the guideline and use lots of data.

BUS800 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Good luck. Very vague and useless instructions and for the cases he does not read them until after you hand them in...thats when he gives advice. Not prepared so asking questions about the work beforehand will get you no where. Read the book for the exam. Very blunt in his comments on your assignments (which are not legible.)

Worst Prof I've had, he's so rude to anyone. He doesn't care about his students and he is very condescending. His TA knows and does more than he does. Useless.

BUS800 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He's very intelligent. He should teach ENT courses as I had a good experience. I feel that he should not teach BUS800. I've been having very strong panic attacks after enrolling. I pray that I don't fall into an Abyss by the end of the class. Please for the love of God do not take the class if you're not used to feeling like a failure.

CENT 500 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I was very disappointed about this course, when asking for clarity about an assignment I had to wait a few days for a one or two word answer. He would not explain why I was given the grades I was given and sent out rude class emails to respond to various students questions.

I took this DE, perhaps he is better in person. I found him to be disinterested - just going through the motions.

BUS800 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Everyone says that he's the worst, but I have yet to see what's so bad about him. Pretty relaxed guy and marks relatively easy. Be sure to participate in class even if what you have to say has nothing to do with the topic. Textbook isn't at all, but recommended you read chapters 10-12 for the second group assignment. The course is dry, prof is good

Worst professor i've had - asked him to be a referee for my post grad as I had him for another course in which I got an A ... he refused as my BUS800 mark was not good enough to earn a reference from him ...

The best course I have taken so far - very interesting, with a lot of real world examples. Steven wants you to succeed in his class, just follow the rubric guidelines, and you'll receive 100/100! He stays after the class to answer your questions and tells you exactly what he wants to see in you paper. Great course and an excellent professor.

He will show you this at the beginning of your course and you will think that maybe the ratings are unfair. Nope. He is not helpful, unclear and entirely disrespectful. Had him for ENT 526 and BUS 800 worst semester I've ever had in university.

Steve is not the conventional professor. He is very knowledgable, practical and passionate about the course. I have learnt more in his class than many other mgt courses. If you come to all his lectures and participate, you've already earned yourself lots of marks. Work hard and do your readings... it'll be a fun and rewarding course! :)

Not a very understanding prof, nor does he seem remotely interested in teaching the class.
