Students at Baruch College's Division of Continuing and Professional Studies come from all walks of life and all levels of education and all have unique goals and aspirations. Some study with us to advance their careers, some to change careers, some to improve their language skills, and many join us just to enrich their personal lives. Many of our students have gone on to obtain very prestigious positions with corporations both in the U.S. and abroad.
Responding to market needs, Baruch College's Division of Continuing and Professional Studies develops and launches new courses and programs that can immediately meet the needs of the aspiring professional. These new programs are presented to the public after rigorous educational development and with input from experts in the professional community.
Taught by industry leading professionals, our courses are held during the day, as well as evenings, and weekends to best meet the needs of adult students. Courses are offered in a traditional classroom, online, or in a combination of both formats.
too many ppl in the class, with very different level. hardly had any quality time to play
Great course to connect the dots with communication and accounting. Valuable experience and awesome instructor that really breaks down complex issues. Definitely recommends this course.
I thought the class was very good. The Instructor, George Donahue, is a subject matter expert in the field of negotiations. The class was small with only 8 students. There were 2 students with backgrounds in real estate, 1 with M&A's, a couple of people in sales and I was from the government. He made an effort to use examples applicable to all the different fields making the class more interesting. The course was a great value and well worth my time and money.
The instructor is very knowledgeable in the Construction Estimating field
Teacher just taught directly out of the $45 textbook I had to buy for this class (which I was unaware of). I could have spent the money on the book and learned it myself Also, this class is part of a larger finance certificate program. So most of the students in the class are in the program. As a result there is a bunch of graded homework, midterms, and finals that the class description did not have. It's quite a bit of outside work, something to consider if you're working full time.
I was expecting the instructor of the class to cover topics related to building construction as indicated on the syllabus, and NOT spend hours talking about his experiences in real estate. Furthermore, the instructor's health did not allow him to teach for the full 8 hours, so each time we were dismissed early and told to read the textbook. Overall, this was a waste of money and time.
My experience with Course Horse itself was as ever great and seamless. However, the teacher for the Baruch class was not a good instructor. While she may have known her specific company's project management stuff inside and out while working there 15 years previous, she completely lacked the ability to impart knowledge, to translate skills, techniques and ideas from various industries or scenarios to others. Her idea of instruction was to read VERBATIM the bullet points on the slides. Buying the book and reading that would have been entirely sufficient and less time consuming.
The teacher seems unsure, talked for a long period of time and never did an introduction to the subjects in class. I only went to two classes.
the class was a waste of time and money. the instructor, though clearly experienced, was woefully unprepared to teach. he was vulgar and unprofessional throughout. a syllabus was distributed at the first class but the items on it were not covered. he spent most of the time talking about himself; some of it covering his real estate experiences and a lot of it not. class was supposed to be 2 hr, 50 min. per session. in fact, it ranged from 1 hr 30min to 2 hr 15 min. he may have a lot of years in the business but, he has no business teaching. i could hear the instructor across the hall talking about cap rates; describing what they were and how to calculate them and i was wishing we had that instructor instead.
