The single worst professor I've ever taken. Rude, lacks knowledge of the subject material, self-important, takes no interest in his students, unhelpful. Do anything you can to get out of his class.

Wade is an amazing business professor. Extremely intelligent, lots of experience, and you will never laugh as much as you do in his class. I enjoyed him so much I took him for FNCE 121 and 124. 124 is less structured than 121, but you have to keep trading on Stocktrak and using the techniques he goes over.

Worst teacher that I have ever had at SCU. Rude, entitled, and lacks structure. Not what I was expecting from an intro Finance class.

One of the best professor's I've ever had at SCU, but get on his good side and it'll help you later. For exams and quizzes, focus on problems covered in-class. Text is a good supplement but don't rely on it. Listen to to his lectures...and I mean really listen, don't just copy everything from the board... you'd be surprised how much info you retain

Professor Wade is not very clear and this class lacks structure. He is not very helpful in office hours either. Overall I would not suggest this professor for an introductory finance class

Wade may seem unclear and not knowledgeable about his subject, but the guy's accomplishments speak for themselves. Keep your mind open, and you'll pick up that not only does he know his stuff, but also that the way he goes about it reveals a humble side not prone to most professors of the business school. Take him, he's great :]

Best professor I had at SCU bar none. The guy has accomplished so much in the business world and wants his students to do the same and furthers that desire through the use of his own contacts in the business world. This guy shouldn't just be teaching at SCU, he should be running SCU. he's hilarious and is the only prof I keep in touch with from SCU

He was a substitute teacher in a way. No homework just do what you need to do to prepare for test/quizes. Doesn't require expensive books. Gave exact example of what was going to be on the test. Fun teacher and made accounting as fun as possible. I would recommend going to his office hours. Curves grades.

Awesome teacher! Very knowledgeable, organized and enthusiastic. Extremely helpful and devoted to his students. Very down to earth and willing to listen and change strategies if needed to help the learning process. One of the smartest finance professors I have had at SCU, loved every minute of his classes. I highly recommend taking Wade's class!

There's only one Professor Wade. And you can only get his unbridled business-war stories and commentary in this class. I suppose there are office hours as well for the unintiated...

Wade is an god of investments, but he'll never mention it to you. He is half of a dynamic duo, made up of himself and Tony Nguyen, the Robin to his Batman. Do the reading and then speak up in class, put effort in and build your interest in investments. He'll often tie in ethics to investing and you'll be a better for it.

Professor Wade is a hilarious man, although sometimes he can be a bit unclear. He's very helpful in office hours, and will do what he can to make sure you do well in his class.

He's absolutely funny, but that kinda gets in the way of the material and presenting it in a clear way. He's there for his office hours, but how helpful he is...that's up in the air. Reading the book is definitely helpful, but if you can do the problems he assigns, your gold. Overall a pretty good intro class and experience. B+

Great guy, very funny. Not very clear but he is available for help and he holds review sessions. Reading the text is helpful, look for tricks on exams.

Wade is a great guy, fun teacher, and model american. Stocktrak is fun and informative, make as many trades as possible. Midterm is easy, Final is impossible, so write a good final paper and do well in stocktrak, because the final is hard to pass but is most definetly curved

Do not take his Accounting 11 Class, he teaches fine, but if you value your GPA stay away from him. He does not test you on the material, he designs tests to trick you. You might be tempted by the lack of homework and his so called "humor", but its not worth being slaughtered like sheep in his exams. Worst. Professor. Ever.
