Comment:
Professor Onochie went on a lot of tangents and did not thoroughly teach all of the material. As an investment analysis class you would imagine how much there is to learn. He taught maybe 15% of the material but tested on everything. I had high hopes for this class but it fell flat. Expected to do 3 group projects with no feedback. Hard to learn..

Comment:
Overall material covered was definitely not too difficult. There are 2 group projects, so def try to have good members & good communication. Grading def seemed fair but can be a bit picky about presentation for projects. Very entertaining professor & time went by much faster than other finance classes.

Comment:
He's a nice guy, but if you want to learn, you'll end up doing all of it from the textbook. Him and his TA's were difficult to reach after class/offline. Takes forever to grade and gives subpar feedback. Frequently went off on tangents during lectures and would stop to say hi to "his buddy" (a student who may have appeared on his zoom screen).

Literally the worst freaking professor ever. Not accessible outside of class and ignores all emails, and his TAs ignore you too. Don't ever take this class if you want to learn anything.

Comment:
This guy is a failure and doesnt know how to teach. R Class, but barely knows how a working directory or setwd() works, or even how basic R syntax works, its ridiculous. Lectures are an absolute joke, half the time he talks about how he drinks cheap strong Chinese beer. Extremely unclear in instructions, he doesnt remember which homework he gave!

He made us use R while himself don't know how to use it, not really accessible, material is not well explained, know his stuff but struggle to explain to students. Take someone else if you can.

Comment:
He is a funny guy to keep you entertained. However, he only teaches 30% of what is in the book, and then he will test you for 100%. He expects you to the readings by yourself and then show and take a complicated exam (he says that himself). Most people failed the first exam, even though he curves a lot is not the way to teach. I wouldn't take him.

Comment:
I will rate him 0 if I can. Oversimplify concepts, he only taught less than 1/3 of important concepts in investment; what I learnt in undergrad is much much more than what he taught! Forget to do things and highly disorganized in giving projects and making exams! No integrity at all in giving final grades. Never reply emails. His project was so sim

He does a good job showing different ways to tackle the questions and making the class interesting but it's up to you to practice different examples outside of class. Of course exams are going to be difficult if you only rely on the 2 questions covered in class. No reason you shouldn't pass if you master the homework and come for the lectures.

Knows his finance but does a poor job at preparing students for exams. Doesn't seem to care enough to teach, in class examples are simple and he jokes around, and then gives difficult exams without properly teaching the material during his lectures.

Yes he is a funny guy, and you will be entertained in class. Although he does not teach the material clearly at all, spends half of the class repeating very oversimplified examples. Only to get blindsided by very hard exam. Pretty much on yourself to learn finance, through the textbook, which is not easy.

He doesn't teach anything and the tests are 50 times more difficult that what he teaches in class. Avoid like cancer.

One of the worst professors I've taken at Baruch. Spends the majority of the time in class telling completely false stories, trying to be funny, and bragging about how he was a C+ MBA Student. His exams are extremely difficult, more than what's in lecture. Hardly covers any material in class. Won't explain exam expectations. Forgets to do things.

I've had this professor at Touro college. The classes are a real pleasure, it's easy to learn with him and he gives you a good time. Classes are not too long and it's ok to not show up few times. He cares about the need of the class and he doesn't stress out the students. The exam was with multiple choices and pretty hard, but he gave good grades.

Hi is hilarious, however his tests are no joke. You will need to study at least a week prior to exams to get a decent score. He does give a fair curve at the end of the semester
