MGMT 307 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A
"Lectures are long" "Tests are tough"

Lectures last until final minute, doesn't clarify how she will grade, and assignments definitely challenge you. All material is online for you

MGMT307 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Prof. Drost was great. A little boring with the pp, but overall a delight. 2 writing assignments, midterm and final. Read the book, ask questions and show up to class. I do wish the class would have been broken into groups because it's easy to loose focus when you're in an evening class. At one point I felt like a zombie staring blankly at the pp.

MGMT 307 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B

Dr. Drost is is a good choice for the subject. You have 2 papers, 2 pages long max. 1 midterm and final. Read the chapters, pay attention when she says "this is on test" and you'll do fine! She has made fun of a student, but that was because he said some stupid things in class and she wasn't having any of it. Take her class.

One of the few professors that can actually teach. 2 assignments, 1 midterm, 1 final. Reading the book is essential to getting good grades on tests. Take her

Easy B. Drost is funny and a good lecturer. I never heard her insult anyone in my class like others stated. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO DO WELL ON THE TWO CASE ASSIGNMENTS SHE PROVIDES FOR HOMEWORK!! I underestimated the value of these and it brought me down to a B. Exams are easy and I only read the book for a few hours before.

Prof. Drost is not rude. She likes concise answers. I wish she shared her knowledge by lecturing instead of reading slides.

MGMT497 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Drost is easy! She is straight to the point and wants students to be the same in presentations, midterm, etc. She IS rude, but don't take it personal. As long as you show her you know what you're talking about with facts and numbers she's fine. She doesn't like "fluff", just be straight to the point.

I am suprised how that many people under rated her. She is very clear and knows what she talks about. One of the easiest upper division professor. Attend every class and pay attention to what she puts on the board and you will be fine. No need to buy textbook bc she reserves one in the library. You SHOULD at least get a B based on easiness.

Reading all the comments about Ellen Drost above really doesnt make any sense to me. She knows what she is doing!For people complaining about her critique,this is the whole idea going to school to be told what you are doing wrong that you can learn people!Easy homework, bearable tests and fun atmosphere in the class!

she is rude, plain and simple. She doesn't really have respect for people who may commit mistakes; personal attacks are never right for a teacher.

Her lectures are irrelevant. She has no ideas abt the topic she's teaching, very low efficient. and almost useless topic from her class. Final Adv -Take Kun Lai or Kunkel if you really want to learn smth from this subject!!

She grades base on group evaluation regardless you get a A in midterm or final, typical stereotype. She's almost don't know her material at all, has to have Prof. Kunlai and Prof. Kunkel to came over to our class and explain the game plan strategy. Consider herself a Doctor?? Move along to Finland, shame to be teaching here

Mgmt 497 is a difficult course but Drost is a likeable instructor. She pays close attention to details so be careful. Very approachable instructor. Not sure if she's teaching here again since she mentioned that she was moving to San Diego.

Dr. Drost made this course extremely easy. Lectures were accompanied by power point slides. Slides were available on webCT. Midterm and Final are straight from the slides. I purchased the book but rarely used it. You will be assigned a few assignments (solo and cooperative). Don’t worry they are easy.
