    Anyone have a prof openly discuss the changes to the grand from last semester? my OBHR prof explained that they went to a curve and grades will be adjusted and changed by department heads to match the desired curve.

    I did my evening MBA at the U of A a few years ago. One of the courses I did was a blended undergrad MBA class, so I ended up in a group with 3 undergrad business students. Eff that! I forgot how immature undergrads were and that made me double check all my future courses to make sure that never happened again.
    Holy shit. Id ask for a refund.

    The course was interesting, but the group work sucked. It was a learning experience, and probably actually valuable to have to interact with group-mates outside my usual comfort zone. I'm going to go with that and keep my rose colored glasses on

    Yup, the new associate dean is mandating it.

    This has actually resulted in lower grades overall btw, no more courses where 50%+ of the class gets an A.

    I had one blended class, it was pretty terrible. But we had different course outcomes and had to work with the other MBA students so that wasn’t so bad. I still wouldn’t recommend it.

    Had this happen on the weekend. I think 6 students in the class had their grades adjusted down even after it was finalized and on their "My Grades" section. Lots of complaints for after the fact grade changes!

    Was Tunde your OBHR professor? Thought he was awesome.

    Explained it to us and from what I gathered they can only allocate A to A+ to 20% of students. B+ to A- to 20% and then 60% to B and below.

    I think it’s 60% b+ to A-

    Essentially anchors program average GPA around 3.5 which is still very high.

    . That seems insanely high, even for graduate programs which have higher averages.

    B- is the hard minimum to pass a course, and you really shouldn’t be able to fail MBA Cources.

    No need to take my word for it, here is the distribution for one of the courses I am currently taking:

    Well in a class that spends an average of 100hrs a week on their MBA, I’ll be happy spending half the time and getting my B- lol.

    Yeah, full time. Maybe 100 was a slight exaggeration but most of the people in my cohort talk about spending 10hrs a day on schoolwork. I was just trying to say that there is no way I’m going to put in THAT much time to compete for A’s.

    My prof has told us you will spend about 100 hours the whole semester including lecture time on each course. That's what it is meant to be structured as anyways lol. So she says

    Some courses are known to be particularly heavy. For example Elias’s M&A course he says if you aren’t willing to spend a minimum of 10 hours a week outside of class time on his course don’t even sign up. But mostly I would say a few hours doing readings and assignments on the weekend and you are good.

    What are some of the best electives to take in terms of workload and learning value? I don't plan on specializing, just want to take the path of least resistance..

    As hard as M&A is I recommend it. I think it should be mandatory.

    What are you interested in professionally.

    Operations management and entrepreneurship are my main interests. I enjoy finance, but on a personal level.

    New venture finance might be interesting. Or new venture law.

    I think there are some operations amangemsnt classes offered over the summer with pretty convenient timing.

    There are a ton of new entrepreneurship courses that I’m less familiar with (not really my focus).
