I got a B!
© Copyright 2004 Mojoey
Dr. Paul Gift is a talented Adjunct Professor teaching economics in Pepperdine's MBA program. Economics was the hardest class to date in the MBA program. I struggled with concepts that were new to me. I am actually happy with a B, I feared much worse. Dr. Gift is the best teacher I have had while in Pepperdine’s program. He is a good lecturer, and is able to teach a complex subject in a way that invites further inquiry. I actually like economics now.
I had to study hard for this class; much harder than in any other class so far. Dr. Gifts mid-term and final exam are very difficult. He is after making sure his students understand the subject and can demonstrate their knowledge. Up to this point in my education, I have never taken a test that was so hard, or as stressful. I am glad this class is behind me.
I hope Pepperdine sees the value of bringing Dr. Gift on as a full time professor. In my opinion, their program will be much better off for it.
