AC766 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This class is extremely tough to get through because Burnaby is a professor. She assigns a massive amount of busy work for homework each week that she collects, and then never does anything with it except put a "check" on it. Is a disservice to educators, and really is a waste of a class. Do not take this professor if you have any other options.

AC744 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This class is all busy work that, for the most part, is pointless (but collected and "graded") It's way too much work for graduate students, she's lost touch with how much work is acceptable while you're taking more than one class and/or working. It's time to get a professor with more recent industry experience and realistic expectations of work.

AC744 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This class is 100% busy work and you learn nothing practical. She assigns an insane amount of work that's literally impossible to complete week after week. She only cares about formatting, and doesn't even spend the time to read the content you put down. Don't take this professor, there are many better ones out there that respect student's time.

AC744 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

Expects and gives 10+ hrs worth of homework a week, plus 3 hrs of class time a week. As a full time working grad student, I couldn't survive doing 4 classes like this one. Way too many instructions and treats us like middle school children. Spend over $400 on a useless membership to internal audit association (just to buy books) plus printing funds

AC 766 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

You've been warned, this class is a lot of work. But it is possibly the best, and most applied, management class I've taken at Bentley. She's a great professor. Overall a very rewarding course with one of Bentley's best professor's. Strongly recommended.

Ac001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

There is a lot of homework - be prepared to spend at least 10 hours each week on assignments. If you do your work and follow instructions, you will do very well in this class. There will be high expectations on you as a student but this (and AC744) class are the ones you will learn the most in. Burnaby is the best professor I've ever had anywhere.

ACC766 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Focus most of your attention on graded assignments. She doesn't focus on the assignments she gives you a check for. Doing so will save you many hours. She also doesn't care much about the content of your assignments and gives you a random grade.Your grade only suffers if you do not meet her specifications on the assignments.Classes are VERY BORING.

AC766 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Class was easy and interesting. The amount of work is ridiculous though. You need at least 10 hours per week outside of class. My group spent practically every Saturday morning working on cases in addition to putting in time for personal assignments.

AC766 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Absolutely insane amount of work. No respect for your personal time. You'll learn more from the guest speakers. So much work and reading that you have to skip everything that isn't graded. Real disservice to education. Don't take unless you have NO OTHER OPTION. If you have to, make sure you're taking only taking other easy classes at the same time

PF503 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This professor is a little "crazy", she gives out candy for right answers and can seem a bit over the top at times, but she's interesting and that makes a relatively boring subject easy to sit through. She's knowledgable and fair, all in all a good professor.
