I graduated in 2012, and can say that his class was the most impactful course that I took at West Chester. The lessons that I learned from him have been very valuable throughout my career. Highly recommend him.

One of the only professors who truly challenged me enough where I came away having learned something valuable. His class is hard, and work mounts up quickly if you don't stay on top of it. You cannot slack off for one minute in this class. But the man is amazing at what he does. Fantastic professor. I learned more than I have from any other class.

The kids complaining on here need to set the bar higher for themselves. Paul's one of the best profs I've ever had. He actually prepares you for the real world. He'challenging, but gives you the resources to succeed. It's easy to earn an A if you actually put in the work. He's a great mentor- don't take him for granted. You'll learn so much.

Graded only on weekly group-written business case papers, and a few individual. The papers need to be re-written if they are not done correctly. Once you know what he is looking for you will be fine. His lectures prep you for each case- hinting at what is important. Learned SO MUCH from this brilliant man! Take him for this class!!!

Is not clear about what is assigned until it is already due, and then you receive 30% even though you did it to your best ability. Is never at office hours, says to buy the book but literally never touches it, does not test on material. Tests are based on implications and theories he vaguely and dryly touches on in class weeks before. DO NOT TAKE.

Comment:
Very tough class. He is hard to pay attention too, doesn't take attendance often. Is very vague with little direction on the assignments he gives you. He is never in his office hours and does not have the best bed side manor when asking questions. I suggest taking a teacher that is more attentive to your needs this course.

Comment:
Arsenault is a challenging professor and his case studies are time intensive. You must read the cases multiple times in order to truly write a good case. The cases are hard but you will learn. Best professor in the marketing department, in my opinion. We need more like him.

Hated Paul for the first couple of weeks I had him in class, know thats completely different. Paul is a highly knowledgeable man and sincerely teaches you lessons that you cannot learn anywhere else. The cases in 425 are a pain and are stressful, but the amount you learn from redoing them is worth the time spent. Paul will help you, he is a great

AWESOME PROFESSOR. His lectures will tend to go all over the place and he gets off topic easily, but at the end of the day, you will truly learn valuable lessons that not many teachers can accomplish. The cases are time consuming but you will remember them. Get to know him on personal level and he'll love you. Definitely recommend taking him.

Nice Prof but TERRIBLE TEACHER AND VERY BORING! He can talk on and on about nothing for hours and he does. He has a big ego so pretend he is smart and interesting if you want a better grade. Try not to take him for both 425 and 440 if you can. Especially stay away from his MKT425 class.

Hard professor. Makes you think twice, but worth the extra hour or two you spend per week on his cases. Cases (papers) are due every week. Work together with lots of others and they seem less daunting. PS go to office hours he'll love you.

Took him for 425 & 400. In 425 he's a nightmare and in 440 he's great. the weekly papers are incredibly time consuming...4-5 hours per week. Would net recommend taking him for 425.

Comment:
Very time consuming class.. Have a group paper due everyweek on Harvard Business Cases, have to re-do every week until it is perfect. I reccommend not taking it with MKT 440 at the same time.. quoted from the syllabus "you do not have a life outside of this class".... true statement right there. However, he means well and is very helpful.

After reading his syllabus and having the first class he comes off as a hard professor. He is definitely not. Great teacher who makes the class very interesting. He is very experienced and knows his stuff. All the guy requires is effort. If you get involved and try, you'll have no problem getting an A. anyone scoring him low is just lazy.

Did not use a textboook. But required you to read "Buying-in". I found it challenging to take him for two classes in one semester. Expecially since both classes required reading books. (not that reading is hard, just time consuming). This class is not a hard class, and he does his best to make it interesting. Funny and nice guy. GO TO CLASS!

Nice guy who means well, but his teaching techniques for this class are not the best. Every week we took an online quiz which covered material we were to have read on our own. The day AFTR the quiz was taken we would cover the material in class..this doesn't make much sense to me. Also we never went over the quizes. Can be rude to students at times

Can be unclear at times and crams in a lot of work. Does a lot of trial and error type assignments. Wants to see you do well, but wants to see you do it on your own. It's a 300 level course, there is no need to be baby fed the material. Treats you like an adult and prepares you for the job world. Anyone who hates on him is just being lazy
