Comment:
By far the worst teacher I have ever taken! He writes everything on the board so small and so messy that nobody in the class can read it. The students teach the class because he is too lazy to do it himself. Also, incredibly disorganized and comes to class looking like a mess. He always starts late and lets out late. He has no courtesy for students

Do not take this professor at all costs. Trust me, take the only other professor who teaches this class. You will save yourself from getting a C. Professor Allen's Minitests are weighted too high and all MC quesions include none of the above or all of the above. Students teach the class. You cannot get an A even if you read the textbook.

Terrible Professor. 6 Minitests worth 45points each for 60% of your grade. Questions are worded very poorly to play tricks. You can never calculate your final grade due to his bell curve technique. Groups teach the chapters. I learned nothing. Expect no higher than a C unfortunately if you take him.

I agree.This guy is worthless in teaching! He should be paid ONLY to do research!Don't plan on getting an "A" because he uses a forced bell-curve to grade. You won't have any idea what your grade is until it's on your transcript. His ideas are antiquated and communication skills are terrible.DON'T TAKE HIM!Don't waste your $$$!

Easy class. You just have to show up and listen. Don't have to read the book or readings. Arbitrary grades give you a B with minimal effort. If you miss class get a doctor's note and you're in the clear.

Comment:
I was looking forward to this course, but Dr. Allen only used ideas from the 70s and 80s, like door-to-door sales, which have little relevance today. It felt disrespectful that he dressed in old wrinkled t-shirts and jeans every day. It was difficult to ask questions since he is a heavy smoker and it is hard to breath when standing next to him.

Expect to get a B no matter how much you read the material or how good you are at the cases. All the articles and cases are from 1980's and prior. His "mini-tests" are mostly common sense and what he teaches the hour prior to the test. He needs to buy a belt for his pants that fall down.

Comment:
Everything anyone has ever said about this class is true. The professor is absolutely horrible. I've come to learn that marketing is pretty much just guessing and drinking. It's nothing like Mad Men. There's a test every other class that's 15 questions that covers 3-5 chapters and additional readings. The 30 yr old cases are even worse! Run away!

Believe what you read here! This class was BY FAR the worst class I have ever taken (undergraduate or graduate). The professor seems to have no interest in teaching the material or helping students learn. He seems to do as little as possible, using outdated articles and case studies, and recycling old tests. His "distributed grading" is arbitrary.

He scribbles unintelligible markings on the board that no one is able to read or understand. Grades for in-class assignments seem to be random and arbitrary since there is no explanation given to explain how he quantifies your grade. Very disappointing overall.

He wants you to think he's all cool and laid back at the start. Then you realize he doesn't teach anything worth while, and all his materials are from 1960-1984. I never expect an easy A, but everyone is right, take someone else. I would never take him for any class again. It not that tough to get a decent grade, but you will hate case studies!

Comment:
This class is easy if all you want to do is pass. If you put "E" for every answer on the exam you will average about an 81%. Class is terrible and very hard to follow. At the end of the year he curves the grades so everyone at least gets a passing grade. if you study expect a B, if you do nothing, expect a C... pretty sure A's are unattainable.

Worst Prof from MBA and Undergrad. He curses, uses material from the 70's and 80's. His "group learning" involves him going for smoke breaks while the class is left groping for information to try to complete assignments. His lectures are useless and incomprehensible. His grading is completely subjective. DO NOT TAKE CLASS. I WROTE TO THE DEAN!

Absolutely terrible, every thing everyone has said is true. Students teach class 2 days, he talks one day briefly about topics and usually a bunch of stuff that has nothing to do with the test (research hes conducting on bikers), then you test one day. So he teaches 25% of the class time your there if you can even call it that. HARD A! RUN!!!!!!!!!

Terrible Professor, if you can even call him that. First, he is about as unprofessional as they come, wearing a t-shirt and jeans everyday. If I'm paying to take a class, I want the teacher to at least give the illusion that he wants to be there teaching. Poorly designed tests, very low chance at an A since he grades relative to everyone else.

DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT TAKING THIS PROFESSOR. Seriously, I am LITERALLY an almost straight A student (I have 3 B+'s) and I got my first C in this class. Rearrange your entire schedule to take another teacher, hell, STAY AN EXTRA SEMESTER JUST TO AVOID THIS GUY!!! It is horrible, seriously...

He does a good job of weaseling out of teaching the students. You dont know grade till very end, and students teach each chapter while he jist sits there and does nothing for $126.77 dollars a credit hour. DO NOT TAKE HIM, YOU WILL REGRET IT!!!!!!
