I very clearly understood what the focus of the assignments were, and what his expectations were. He was also very responsive to questions and was a great introduction into the MBA program for me in Module 1."

We congratulate and thank these faculty for their efforts in making their courses, and therefore the UW MBA Consortium program, the best it can be.
