Prof Studenmund is great. He care a lot about his students and wants them to succeed. He will find ways to keep the class engaged, and he encourages questions so do not be afraid to ask them. I recommend taking a class with him if you can!

Comment:
My favorite class I've ever taken in the Econ department but not for everyone. You must be willing to speak and come prepared to class by reading the case studies because he cold call and everyone must speak. That being said the material is not difficult and is mainly about forming decisions then making decisive arguments to support your decision.

One of the best professors I've ever had. Very helpful in office hours, leaves time in class for questions, and a fair grades. The material is manageable but you have to really learn the material in order to get an A in the course.

Comment:
Woody takes a no nonsense approach to this class. He is engaged and dynamic, challenging you to be the same. Workload is very manageable but you better do it and show you thought about it too. Straightforward B/B+ near impossible A. Refreshing break from the usual--useful for teaching about ethics, decision making, and the business world (memos!).

Comment:
Takes a complex subject and breaks it down better then others do in the department. Enthusiastic, but serious class lectures. Major project takes a fair share of time n'effort, but isn't unmanageable. Take exam prep seriously, if you don't put forth the effort your grade will reflect as such. Go see him outside of class if something is unclear

Comment:
Case based learning approach, great for grad-school prep. Extremely clear and helpful when sought out for it. As many have said,the class is interesting, but if you aren't one for participation this one might not be for you. Confidence and consistency are keys for making this an enjoyable and successful experience.

There are 3 grades in this class: two tests and a project. Whatever you do do not save the project for the last minute. Finish it in early November.

Comment:
This is a very straight forward class. He tells you what you need to know, and it's up to you to make sure you understand everything on that list. He is readily available in office hours, so if anything is unclear during class, don't hesitate to stop by his office. Start your final project early and it won't keep you up during finals week.

Comment:
Best class at Oxy. It was a lot of work preparing for cases, but once you get the hang of it, it's not too bad. Speak up, not a problem for me, but if that's not you make sure you do. It's a nice break from the usual econ class and it makes what we are learning about relevant since they are real-world cases. don't underestimate the final.

Comment:
This class is very hard but very rewarding. Instead of grinding out notes it is mostly about being assertive enough to speak your mind and present your opinion clearly. It is very relevant to the real world which is a welcome change from theory classes. As far as his negative reviews go, I never met a good student who didn't love Woody.

Comment:
He is a great prof. Get's excited about the material, doesn't waste time, doesn't assign busy work. I can understand that some people may not like econometrics because the material is a bit challenging and he's not going to baby you but he will teach you what you need to know.

Biased towards jocks. If you are anything other than a jock or an attractive girl, then he's not that nice to you.

A pleasant change from the theoretical economists that compose most of the department. Teaches practical, real-world stuff. Exciting teaching style. Assignments are fun. Fair grader.
