Comment:
If you don't like Finance you probably won't like his classes. He explains things well in class, but you'll be in trouble if you miss it because readings aren't very good (none in BFIN 322). However, you will learn more from him than ANY other finance professor. If you take BFIN 320 with him and like it, you'll enjoy the rest of finance.

He does not seem to care about any of his students at all or helping anyone. He keeps his back to the class almost the entire class. I would not recommend this class to anyone.

Comment:
I was a finance major and took many courses from Hickman. He's smart, a good man and cares about his students. He will be a great resource to you after you graduate. My favorite part about his courses were the life examples he used. Not tough and easy to get an A in his class.

He is always late and expects us to come to his boring course. He use the most random and time consuming examples through videos which make me question his interest teaching. However he seems to be a nice guy. I like the way he speaks even though I do not listen to what he says.

This professor should be stripped of tenure and released from the school. He is predictably ten minutes late to class, is unprepared in his lectures and does not physically present himself in a manner fitting of a business school. If I had my way he would be finished today.

Pretty easy class, but the guy is a tool who does not respect his students. He chronically shows up late to class and is probably the most unorganized person I've ever met in a role like his. He lost several of my papers.

Hickman is awful. Worst I have experienced at GU. Knows his stuff but cant communicate it in a clear way. Not nice to approach after class, too arrogant and comes off rude and snide even when he doesnt mean it. A hard class gets difficult with him.

Hickman told me I was wasting his time when I went to talk to him during office hours. He has no idea what he is talking about and is hands down the worst teacher I have ever had. Rude, arrogant, and doesn't even have the discipline to show up to class on time. 10 min late to every class! If he worked for me I would fire him! Very unprofessional!!

Comment:
By FAR the worst "professor" I've had in college/life and the way he presents himself is an insult to those who pay his salary aka students. He is also the most arrogant person I have ever encountered and I cannot figure out why. I am an UNDERGRAD with MORE experience in finance than him. Btw, Having written the book does not make him an "expert".

If I ever have to go to college again, I would prefer to be in one of his classes. He is the best finance professor I've ever had.

Comment:
No structure to his lectures, they are mostly filled with random stories irrelevant to the material so it's hard to know what to know. Tests are a crap-shoot, one will be easy, the next will be impossible. Overall just ok. And he's a liberal, which sometimes works its way into lectures.

Scattered lectures. Tests are hard if you don't do the homework, but the homework is reasonable though not turned in so many students don't do it. Decent class overall. At a minimum it's entertaining to watch Hickman get covered in chalk over the course of the class period.
