Comment:
I was a perfect 4.0 student before this course. Missed 2 classes due to explained absences, submitted all 50 assignments precisely on time, participated regularly in class discussion, studied extensively for exams, yet was given at best an A- on all graded events. Written exam questions are straight from stories he tells in class. Avoid if possible

ORG BEHAV-- Barbato is the best professor I have ever had in my 5 years at RIT. He is down-to-earth, well thought out, and makes each and every student feel valued. The case studies he uses is the BEST POSSIBLE WAY TO LEARN. This course has taught me how to be a better leader, manager, coworker, and most importantly a HUMAN

Comment:
Bob is a very good person. He tries to put in a lot of effort to tell stories and connect to students. The only feedback is that he tries too hard. His ideas are attached to his own philosophy. His class is homework culture and grade chase. Higher importance to material possessions leads to stealing. He will be excellent if removes carrot and stick

Comment:
Prof. Barbato is one of the best story-tellers I've ever listened to. I listened to his class during a student exchange program and boy was it a great experience. The whole class was taught in stories and case studies. You can easily tell that he teaches for the joy of it - which makes you listen with curiosity - which makes you learn easily.

Comment:
This professor is the worst. He comes up with definitions from the top of his head and tests you on them. He comes up with metaphors during his lectures and tests you on those. His tests are from 25 to 30 ESSAY QUESTIONS. You have 1hr 15min to finish. If you do not remember the metaphors and the material verbatim, you're screwed. DOT NOT TAKE! RUN!

Comment:
Every story that comes out of Barbato's mouth is important. They will be on all of the exams. If you do not go to class, you will not hear these stories, and if you don't listen closely and take notes, you will not do well on the exams. He keeps very close track of attendance. If you are a good student you will enjoy his class.

Going to class is essential to do well, you have to take notes and remember what he says. His tests ask specific questions about what was said in class so they're only hard if you didn't go or don't review your notes. He's a great guy and is usually very inspirational and interesting to listen to.

What a fantastic teacher. I took him last year, and am desperately trying to get into another one of his classes. I got an A. I put in effort, participated, and did decent on the tests and quizzes. If you get on his good side, you'll be fine. But seriously, he's so friendly, I do not understand how people didn't do well in his class!

Not the easiest class you'll take but, I would rate Barbato as the best Prof. I have ever had. Thought provoking, passionate and knowledgeable. Class is fun and deep. Prof. goes far beyond the typical cliche 'HR ethics crap' that you're quizzed on a computer about and goes into TRUE Ethics. A helpful class for life!

A true philosopher who somehow manages to make Ethics interesting at 8 AM. Encourages debate and discussion. Make sure you read and do the journals, though!

Comment:
Worst professor I've ever had. Stuck with him with only one quarter left before graduation. Might have to withdraw and take 5 classes my last quarter. His tests are HARD and horrible, he must always be right, he takes half a quarter before talking about BUSINESS ethics...worst class ever...DO NOT TAKE

Had him for business ethics, and it was not a cakewalk. Attendance is mandatory and essential to do well on the tests. Journals are also required before each class. Study the cases to do well on the tests.

0102-438 Business Ethics. Wonderful professor with the great approach to teaching. I enjoyed his lectures and find them very helpful. It is hard to get a good grade without taking notes and attendance. His exams cover 75% of his lectures and the rest is reading. No multiple choice - only essay questions. Highly recommended!

Comment:
The overall class is easy but boring. Read the cases and you'll get 100% on the pop quizzes. The only thing, the tests are really hard. I suggest reading the book to study for them. However, this is a class that takes a lot of time outside of class due to projects.
