Comment:
Classes were engaging and beneficial even as an online course. The professor prepared us well for the case study exams (midterm and final). Her teaching style didn't focus on simply reciting information but also provided real-life examples which helped students apply the concepts taught. I would recommend the textbook for this course.

Very good lectures. Showing up is not mandatory, but if she knows ur face you get better marks. Class participation. She asks alot of questions and opinions. Would definitely take again. Tho I dunno why I got such low grade.

Amazing professor! She really wants you to do well and is always open to explaining concepts you don't get. Tells you what to focus on for the exams. She's very nice, and friendly and is one of the real ones! I would take a course with her again for sure. For the course, just focus on the things she tells and you should be fine.

The class average was around a 50%. I'm terrible at business so I had a hard time understanding material. Textbook was overly confusing but her lectures were amazing and super easy to understand. Exams were pretty tough but focus more on lectures. She tells you exactly what you need to know. Very nice and cares a lot for students.

Good teacher, does well lectures, explains concepts well and gives good examples but tends to say racist stuff like Arabs being terrorists and once had a full lash out at an IT guy who came to fix the projector. There's goods and bads I guess, though she does waste a lot of class time & ends early.

I took Indira for 3450, but I chose to take her again for 3422. She's honestly a really good prof online, she gave us reviews for what the final and midterm was based on so you don't have to worry about the unnecessary content in the dry boring textbook. She tells her TA markers to be fair which is so much better than the other HR profs.

Comment:
Indira is a great professor; she is very clear about her expectations and how to do well in the course. You literally cannot get higher than an A in ORGS 4560 if you miss more than 1 class, because participation is worth A LOT. The only downside are the readings, which were sometimes dry but it was heavily tested in the quiz and midterm.

Indira is a great prof, I'm midway through semester and I'm glad I went with her! Shes fair and honest. Ppl below complained about the presentations taking up class but who cares? Textbook is not mandatory, tests aren't black and white bc all questions are based on her lecture in class. Shes lenient and so helpful in class and life/career advice.

Indira is an amazing professor who is great at teaching! Although a lot of information was given each lecture, she made them all interesting. Indira is funny, intelligent and understanding. I'm extremely grateful to have had her as my Intro To Business professor!

By far the best prof. for Industrial relations (HRM 3422). Shes funny, smart and straight to the point. Condenses and explains materials well using PPT slides, chalkboard notes and group discussions, and also shares relevant personal stories/experiences. The group project and exams were easy. Couldn't have asked for a better prof for this course.

Great prof, pay attention, and take good notes. Most of her stuff is based from the textbook, but there will be the odd application question that's based on things she talks about in class.

I liked her so much for ADMS 1000 I had to take her again for OB. Smart, funny, and inspirational. The textbook is necessary for 1000, but not for 2400. She teaches other theories and concepts that make a lot more sense actually. I read the OB textbook. Quite strange how there's a formula for motivation. Nonetheless, Prof Somwaru is my top choice!

I really liked her classes. She does go off topic sometimes, but time flies with her! She's funny at times too. Reading the textbook is key! Make sure you make your own notes for this lecture and from the text book because the textbook has a lot of unnecessary details.
