This class was tough.
This was my first business course in my first semester of my MBA. I was an architecture major in my undergraduate studies so technical business concepts was very new to me. However, that isn't what Dr. Suyderhoud presses for in his courses. He doesn't agonize about memorizing formulas, or reciting business mantras, but instead actively forces you to shift your mind frame into that of an economist--or a marketer, or accountant, or whichever course you may be taking at the time. The understanding of [alternative] perspective is what was stressed, not memorization.
You have to do the work. Although this was one of the most difficult and rigorous courses I've taken in my MBA program thus far, I am happy it was one of the first. It whipped me back into academic shape and forced me to do the work. Expect to do a lot of work. Expect to be called on in class and chastised if not prepared. Expect to spend long nights ingrained in reading not because you have to, but because the content is interesting and relevant.

Advice for students:
Do the work. Do all the readings. Ask for help if needed. Be prepared. Participate. But finally, don't agonize over perfection, but instead to truly push yourself to your limits with regards to thinking outside the box.
