Past Student Feedback

  • Prof. Nevin was a constant contributor to the discussion board. He encouraged our class to interact with one another and provided us with thought–provoking questions and insight to strengthen the discussions and provide us with additional feedback for our overall marketing plan.
  • One of the best things about this course was Professor Nevin's responsiveness. I asked a lot of questions to make sure I understood the content of each assignment and Professor Nevin was very responsive to each email and was very accessible.
  • Prof. Nevin was always so quick in responding to my emails and was excellent at explaining things to me that I didn't quite understand. I honestly can't think of one negative thing during the whole eight weeks.
