MGT 6890 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Not approachable. If you ask him what he calls "a stupid question" he marks you down on participation points. Whole class was afraid to ask questions after email about stupid questions being asked. Overall workload is decent but was honestly afraid of being reprimanded for being confused.

He is very knowledgeable and applies real world concepts to the course. Sometimes hard to follow, but is always available. Does whatever he can to clear up any confusion.

Places a high value on participation and is willing to help with CapSim problem during practice rounds. Mid Term was very straight forward while the Final was extremely ambiguous. I'd recommend the class and professor, but be prepared to work for a good grade.

BA7080 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Personal opinions on politics rampant and not relevant. Not professional in language and timeliness for lectures/exams. Seems unprepared and unorganized. That being said, I received a good grade as the material is relatively easy.

This was an online class. Grading is very subjective. Test questions are not clear. Would not recommend taking this class with this professor.

The best teacher I ever had in my entire academic experience. I am glad that I had him for my final class ever! He treats you like the adults that you should be by the time you get to college!

Difficult sarcastic and mean spirited would sum him up. Be careful what you ask him, in one instance with an innocent question he threatened to turn the student into the Dean saying that an MBA student ought to know that. I would say avoid him if you can but he has this course locked up with Wayne State.

This teacher is good but be prepared to put in lots and lots of work. For being a basic course i thought it was a 6000 level. Hes is very picky on how you hand in materials and if its not done a certain way he won't accept it.

Spaulding is a great teacher regardless of what anyone says. I got an A in the Bus Law class because I read and highlighted the assignments, scored well on the quizzes and did my homework. Even though it may be lot of work to do well in his class, you will actually learn something that will go towards your career after WSU.

His exams are hard, but if you work hard an "A" is possible. He does give lots of work (homework, quizes, case briefs, etc). However, you will learn in his class. His method of teaching is great. The semester is not over, but I have an "A" so far.

BA 7080 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Exams-from his notes, memorize everything. Grading - subjective. Be prepared for class; if you don’t know answer from his notes, he will hunt you and pick on you for the rest of term. Very offending in his remarks. Often talks about something not related to the class. Bottom line: easy A if he likes you but if he doesn’t you can’t get higher than B

BA 7080 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

The professor is a very intelligent man with alot of real world experience to offer. The problem is that he was very offensive with regard to his remarks dealing with various cultural issues, (based on comments made in class). Finally the grading of the exams was totally subjective and unfounded.

He is full of himself. He has a very offending way of criticizem. Does not tell you that you are doing well when you do, but is quick to tell how you are screwing up. Hated his class.

He has good intentions, but his methods are flawed. His lectures consist of him rambling about his business or something totally unrelated to the class material. He is a fairly easy grader, although his midterm is tough.
