ARBUS 301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This course was very interesting! It was worth going to his lectures. The course consisted of a midterm, a group project (fun), and a final exam. His tests consisted of short answer questions about important concepts in each of the chapters. As long as you study and do the work, you should do well. Overall, I think he was an awesome professor!

ARBUS301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He used to work at IBM. He does a good job at explaining globalization, due to the insight he learned at IBM. If you disregard his slides and just study the textbook you can do a good job, like how IBM does as a job on the global market. His stories are pretty interesting and you will learn a lot about multinational corporations, such as IBM.

COMM400 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Course was good, but Mark needs to tell entrepreneur presenters not to advertise their businesses - as students don't really care. Should focus on explaining their entrepreneurial journey and the start-up process. Courses like this on the startup process are better at other uni's such as Stanford.

ARBUS101 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 was definitely a waste of time, prof is really boring to listen to, hard to concentrate. Heard enough about how he worked at IBM back in the day. Only reason to show up is for clicker questions.

ARBUS101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

If it weren't for the clicker quizzes nobody would've gone to class. Since we do go, it's him going on and on about his experience at Deloitte while 200-ish first-years are streaming videos on their laptops. You can't study for Clicker or exam questions, as they are mostly common sense (Bob Sproule's interpretation of it anyway). Good luck, kids.
