"A little while and I will be gone from among you, whither I cannot tell. From

nowhere we come, into nowhere we go. What is life? It is a flash of firefly in

the night. It is a breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow that

runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset." –Chief Crowfoot

Past Course Evaluations

Selected Student comments:

    • An absolutely fabulous class. I was extremely skeptical and have little to no financial background. I am amazed at how much I learned even with the depth and challenge of the lectured material. The material was presented in way that even I could be successful in this course. Outstanding.
    • I learned things I can use in my real work and in my life. I felt like this was a real value-added course, loved Matt's lectures. Matt's passion about finance is contagious. He looks forward to finance like I look forward to Thanksgiving dinner.
    • MATT IS THE THUNDER GOD OF FINANCE. He quickly became my favorite professor in the program so far. He shared real-world expertise in a way that was both interesting and entertaining. This course was one of the key reasons I sought an EMBA, and it did not disappoint. THANK YOU, MATT!
    • Dr. Ringgenberg is my corporate finance spirit animal. His enthusiasm made something historically frustrating and opaque make sense and something I could get excited about. I also appreciated the attention to teaching us how to do things manually so that we aren't as reliant on Excel. One of the best professors I have ever had.
