Comment:
Absolutely ridiculous. Ken has been by far the worst professor I've had at Ryerson, he gives terrible advice and his feedback is joke worthy. This class is completely useless and I wish I had never taken it.

This prof is tough but is really passionate about the subject and gives good, interesting lectures. I think I learned the most from his Strategy class than any other class and also formed some great bonds with people from the intense group work we had to do!!

Comment:
For the first half of the semester, you're going to hate Ken as this course is heavily front-end loaded, however his methods and tactics will become more clear as the course progresses, and you'll learn to appreciate his style by the end. You'll need to work harder on reports than you're used to in other MBA classes to achieve good grades.

Ken is a great teacher with a wealth of real-world experience to draw on. His MBA strategy class is much harder than the equivalent Global one, but well worth the extra effort.

Comment:
He gave harsh comments, army sergeant style - could be very discouraging to student learnings at time. Careful not to make 'silly' mistakes, or you wouldn't hear the end of it. Students' clarifying questions could be misinterpreted as challenges on his authority. Often remind class of his credentials & past experience. Confidence destroyer. Avoid!!

Comment:
I am so happy I took this Technology and Organizational Strategy course with Ken! He did make us all work A LOT, but it was group work, doing cases. Very practical, challenging and useful for an MBA. Ken is passionate and will teach you, unlike many "easy" profs who let you just pass through the course with little skills and knowledge retained

Comment:
Grant means well but is confusing when outlining the assignments. ENT 726 is all assignments with no final exam and majority of them are group projects. He doesn't give a clear outline or guidance on what to do, he gives vague instructions. Same thing happened when I asked for clarification during his office hours. Try avoid a class with Grant.

Comment:
One of the best profs I've ever had. This is a very tough course and requires a lot of hard work outside of class in a team environment. If you keep an open mind about your business plan idea and take constructive criticism from Ken, then this can be an extremely rewarding course. Make sure you have a marketing and finance person in your group.

Comment:
Ken's lectures aren't the most interesting but he is a relatively decent marker. If you do exactly what is asked of you getting an A is not impossible. The final exam was extremely easy which makes up for the tedious case studies. Over all a good class, and I would not hesitate to take another class from him!

Comment:
Prof. Grant spends 95% of the lectures talking about himself and the other 5% on course content. Must attend all classes, although you may as well bring other work to do for when he goes off on tangents. Not an easy class by any means, but not difficult either...put in the work and you'll achieve somewhere in the B- to B+ range.

Comment:
Possibly the worst Professor. Never had someone who was so useless in lecture bantering on about his golf game and having no ability to answer in class questions. Always contradicting himself by changing class structure and expectations, it is near impossible to do well as there is no set guidelines to do well. This prof will hurt your GPA.

Comment:
Single-handedly ruined the first semester of the MBA program for me. Gives out tonnes of work to the point everyone got frustrated and got sick of the course within weeks. Industry assignment of 10000+ words. Is not representative of a Ryerson prof, he should be fired but he has tenure that he makes sure to rub in your face. End this hell.

Comment:
He is an egotistical, senile, walking contradiction. AVOID IF POSSIBLE - don't ask him for feedback because he will contradict himself on a weekly basis. Never disagree with him or ever let him feel like you may know something he doesn't - he likes to feel power over students so agree with him and just show up the final day for the presentation.

Egotistical, contradicting, senile Prof that should be avoided. His feedback is horrible, classes are pointless - just save yourself the time and effort and buy a business plan book and avoid classes and prof. It's a shame that Prof's like him give Entrepreneurship a bad name - highly dissatisfied.

Comment:
There is a reason that Professors retire when they reach their 70's - Ken Grant is the perfect example of someone that should be forced into retirement. His inconisistent feedback, and egotistical attitude will leave you feeling frustrated by the end of the course. Avoid if possible - if not prepare to kiss butt and never disagree with the Almighty

Took ITM350 online. The course is pretty straightforward, no midterm, and the exam is open book/internet. Participate in the discussions, do all the assignments, and you'll end up with a decent mark.

Had him for ITM724 and ITM350. ITM724 is an MBA level course, and you will definitely learn a lot from it. A LOT of work required, do not underestimate this course! ITM350 was internet distance education, easy marks.
