There are definitely students that don't like his class, but as a professor, he's about as chill as they come. He kind of puts on an act when it comes to being a tough professor, but he is rather laid back in terms of workload and grading. There is no mandatory hw for the class (just optional practice problems). The class grade is basically 2 exams and one semester long project. But the professor is very willing to help students. My group reached out to him multiple times on the semester long project asking to meet outside of office hours when none of us had class. He was always willing to set up a time to meet with us and always helped guide us in the right direction. Very smart professor, but can come off of lazy at times. gives a lot of partial credit on exams so they aren't too hard if you study what he says will be on the exam

Easily one of the worst professors I have ever had. Professor Solomon has incredibly boring lectures and pretty much expects you to be an accounting whiz right off the bat. He randomly calls on people in class which is very uncomfortable to sit through, and guess what, you pretty much have to learn all the material on your own. I never felt comfortable asking him questions in class, because he would just respond in a demeaning tone that made you feel terrible about yourself. Doesn't help that the TA was pretty much AWOL for the entire semester. The exams aren't impossible, but he is unbelievably inconsiderate of how long it takes some people to complete the problems.

This class was online and all the lectures were pre recorded and there was a once a week meeting for a review of the material as well as q&A. The professor cold calls people during this period and its quite frustrating to sit through. There are basically 2 exams and a semester long stock pitch presentation so the workload isn't too much. He isn't very helpful and following along through the material by yourself is quite tough, especially for a class like Financial Statement Analysis.

Finch is a nice and entertaining guy and a good professor, who doesn't waste time teaching you irrelevant stuff. However, he is by no means an easy professor, like others have mentioned. If you want to do well, you need to put in the effort, or else you'll do badly. For this class, we had 5 quizzes, one cumulative final, and a valuation project. They are not overly difficult, but you need to study well for them. The project itself wasn't hard. It was mainly just going through a company's 10K and calculating some ratios and answering questions, but ended up being very time consuming. Overall, I really enjoyed this course, more than 321, which I also took with him. If you put in the effort, the class won't be too hard, and you'll get a good grade.

Seybert was a very good professor. He provided notes at all of his lectures, which was good. He was a pretty good lecturer and kept the students interested in the class. The course consisted of 2 exams and a final stock pitch project. The exams are not too hard if you go to class. The stock pitch was pretty tricky too because it's hard to get all of the forecasting models to match up. Overall, this was a good class and Seybert is a good professor.
