Spring 2012 Course

Mid-Semester Survey Comments:

I am learning how to act as an entrepreneur

John is a great teacher, he gets the class thinking, and the ability to have a smaller class allows for easier discussion/debate. I think the course material is extremely fascinating and I am excited to see where our "big ideas" lead to by the end of the semester.

The discussions that we have in class are interesting and fun. The professor is awesome because he is passionate and knowledgeable about the topics.
