He adds superfluous language to his lecture that distracts a lot from what he's trying to say.

Professor Alexander is the kind of guy you want to teach a very diverse and broad category: management & strategy. He is very good at presenting what needs to be understood in the class, and uses a lot of great hands on and fun activities to further demonstrate the importance of some topics. I really enjoyed the discussion that he fostered in the classroom. Not sure how he can be described as talking "superfluously", but he does like to stress and cater his lectures. I highly recommend. You'll definitely get your tuition-moneys-worth with him.

This class is so much more work than the other 401 classes. You have to do a debate, case analysis, 3 midterms, 22 page group paper and crazy boring classes. Avoid if possible.

Loved this professor. The class has 2 midterms and 1 final (lowest score is dropped), 25% participation which can either really help or hurt you, a written case analysis, a group debate, and a huge group project that involves a 20 page paper and 18 minute presentation. You get to say your preferences for which case and debate you want, so plan ahead and try to spread everything out so you don't get stuck having to do your case, debate, and project all within two weeks of each other. If you can spread them out, this class really won't be that difficult. Alexander explains things in a way so everyone understands them, is very helpful during office hours, and is extremely polite. You can tell he genuinely cares about his students. His tests are extremely fair and easy to do well on if you understand the material and put in some effort. A ton of people didn't do any of the readings until the night before the midterm and then bitched in class when they didn't do well.

Its week 4, so I don't have a grade yet. But he is overly general and tries to speak in such unnecessarily difficult rhetoric. Poor job explaining the structure of the class. We have an essay due on the day he discusses the subject matter, meaning your writing about material you haven't been taught yet...His PPTs are 10 or less slides and doesn't do much to explain the concepts beyond what is on the slides. Overall, would not recommend.

Professor Alexander is a dope dude. He explains the material very well, and it's very straightforward. His grading is also incredibly fair as well. I HIGHLY recommend taking 401 with this professor. He was super helpful during office hours and genuinely cares about his students. I got a B+ because I didn't do well enough on the group project (not exactly my fault?). Very possible to get an A. Take 401 with Alexander, take 401 with Alexander, take 401 with Alexander.

Prof. Alexander is a wonderful instructor and I genuinely enjoyed all the assigned reading and lectures. This is not an easy load course but not too heavy for the class level. He is very fair and extremely helpful during his office hours and will tell you exactly what he is looking for when grading. He is prepared for every class and the case studies and in class exercises are engaging. This course is one of the most helpful courses for real world situations and overlaps many of the course topics covered in previous classes. There are two midterms and a final but he drops the lowest grade so you can opt to not take the final. Depending on how my group does on our final group paper and presentation, I expect to get a high B or low A.
