    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Kama is a very passionate instructor with a wealth of knowledge for the subject. Her "day job" involves handling the press for the Port of Portland, so she is actively engaged in the material that her course covers. Beyond that, she is a great speaker and is always happy to offer any and all assistance to her students. She does her very best to be approachable and available, and provides honest and constructive feedback. She is also very accommodating of all of the strange circumstances that life may throw at a student. Most importantly, she pushes her students to strive for improvement. She is something of a hard grader, but this comes down to the fact that business communications are a crucial skill set for a professional to possess. After all, our reputations are everything in the business world, and it can be small things like poor word choice, ineffective tone, and even simple grammar and spelling errors that can reflect negatively upon us. Additionally, she holds her students accountable; barring extraordinary circumstances, she does not accept late work. While this may seem harsh, it is. That's the point. In the professional world, our colleagues do not have the time or the patience for excuses. Do not mistake this for callousness on Professor Simond's part. She is a kind, compassionate person, but again, she encourages her students to think and act like professionals. I would highly recommend any and all courses that she teaches, to anyone with an interest in studying business.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course was the group project, strangely enough. While many student (myself included) tend to loathe group projects, this was quite enjoyable. Kama gave us the perfect balance of accountability and autonomy to allow us to coordinate our schedules and keep each other on track. My teammates and I learned how to provide a consistent, coherent message in a group presentation, how to efficiently divide labor based on strengths, and most importantly, we had a lot of fun in the process.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO NOT PROCRASTINATE! When in doubt of the objectives of an assignment, ASK FOR CLARIFICATION. Kama can grade hard, but there is a method to the madness.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would take this class with another professor. Also the class is not what the name implies. It is more about writing letters rather than excel and other helpful programs.

    Course highlights:

    I did learn how to write a report and how to write letters and memos. The teacher is very tough and is not forgiving. There is a group project where everyone in the group receives the same grade and other group members can screw you up. Once your group is set there is no "Divorcing" you are stuck with them till the end of the term.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is a requirement for business school. If you are thinking about taking it for a cluster, do not. It is very tough and requires a lot of hard work and self study.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking this class with another professor. Manning is not the best teacher for this course. Way too much reading out of the book when it should be hands on and her teaching style is not helpful in any way. She Also has you work on a group project with five or six people so make sure that you have the capability to meet whenever.

    Course highlights:

    I didn't gain much from this course other than you should really make sure you are good at writing papers.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Write your papers days in advance and actually revise them. Seriously. Do it.
