This has been my favorite class in the IMC program thus far. Professor Pieratt is an awesome teacher and he is super knowledgeable of the IMC field. I actually wish I could have him again for a class. He taught us things that are valuable in the workforce.

He always gave such great feedback and provided us with excellent resources. His class was what inspired me to change to the creative side because he made storytelling so enjoyable. He made you think critically and as if you were in a full room of decision makers. He shared his personal work experiences with us and his own digital concepts from AT&T, which was so interesting to see. There hasn't been very many professors that have made a huge impact in my education but I can honestly say that Professor Pieratt has successfully accomplished that.

Prof. Pieratt I feel as though has been an instrumental person in my life, in class and outside, he has been a fantastic person, mentor, and we are becoming friends. He demonstrated such in-depth knowledge of both the academic and real world application of all we did in class. His feedback style was the best I have experienced in my academic career.
