I enjoyed this class as well as getting to know Dr. Fischbach. It was a pleasant and speedy semester!
she's a really cool teacher !!!
I enjoyed the discussions. It made this class a lot more engaging and interactive. I also really like the textbook used. It was very easy to follow and actually very interesting.
I strongly disliked her tardiness policy, her attendance policy, her no electronics policy. Honestly, she had too many policies. On top of that, she was bias and often referenced to her socioeconomic status, even when it was irrelevant to the course topic. She had a tendency to talk down to others socially and had a smart attitude. For these reasons, I would not take a class from her again.

I really enjoyed this class. The instructor made class very interesting and a fun class to go to. This was one of my favorite classes I have taken at Shidler!
I really enjoyed Professor Fischbach's class. She is very enthusiastic and approachable and makes learning about CB interesting and easy to relate to. She was one of my favorite professors.
Awesome instructor, and great class

16. Other comments:
Overall, you seem very knowledgable on the course content and I have learned some important things about Internet marketing through your course. However, I would recommend working on your power points so they are more creative and thought provoking instead of a lot of repeated material from the book which gets really bland. It can help to draw students in and keep them interested. You have already begun to do this but I would do it more. I do like that you paired us up for the presentations instead of having large groups - it allowed us to make the presentations more seamless and we got to know our partners better. I hope you enjoy your summer and thank you for the class!
YOU THE BEST PROF!!! This is grant by the way. Shoots.
This is a really useful and interesting class.
I think the social mention coding assignment could have been better planned. I think the slides with the different definitions of the different codes should have been available at the start of the first class when we started the coding. This would have allowed us to download the slides on our laptops that way we could glance at the definitions as we coded since the definitions spanned a few slides. Also, I think a little more discussion/background on the different codes would have been useful. Other than that, I thought the course was planned out well.
Fischbach is an asset to this college. She sets high standards for her students and introduces them to industry software in order to give her students an edge when they graduate. In this particular course, Dr. Fischbach introduced Microsoft Dynamics, as well as SPSS. The latter is something I had hoped to learn during my market research class, but did not. The reason was that SPSS typically costs students a lot of money for semester-long use. Dr. Fischbach was able to negotiate student trials with SPSS for a brief period during the semester. She goes above and beyond for her students, but never spoon feeds them. Shidler's marketing program is sorely lacking data/metrics analysis curriculum. Dr. Fischbach delivered. Shidler needs to do whatever it can to keep Dr.Fischbach. She is an excellent professor and I hope she is still at Shidler, perhaps even teaching a few grad seminars, when I come back for my MBA.
Nice and easy class. Learn a lot about CRM materials and marketing companies through CRM system.
She should have us do in class activities on Microsoft Dynamics to teach us how to use the software rather than just focusing on case studies from each chapter
Dr Fischbach is a great teacher who has a lot of really valuable knowledge. Even though the course wasn't my favorite subject, it was bearable through her teaching style and assignments.
I did not like being assigned a partner because I wasn't able to choose someone who was hard working, rather I had to work with someone who didn't pull their weight.
None
Really nice professor. She makes class fun, and tries to encourage students to talk more. Answers emails quickly and tries to offer suggestions. Seems knowledgeable about Internet marketing and provides relevant examples. Encourages students to fix their grammar mistakes and tries to get students to use real-world examples for papers. Expects students to apply topics learned in class such as social media and relate it to papers or short answer responses for exams. Might be better if she could encourage more students to use more statistics in her classes. Most marketing students seem really weak at using basic statistics such as ANOVA or explaining correlation between different charactertics of social media. In addition, during the final presentations, a lot of students did not use any statistics to explain the results they found from social media such as regression, or they barely even mentioned it.
The textbook has multiple mistakes and contradictions. Otherwise I was pleased with your course. Please don't fail me.
