Neumann, Jerry
[IEOR E4998] Manging Tech

Was in his IEOR 4998 class in 2015 Fall. Overall, not a bad class. But getting up on Friday mornings can be a pain and hence many people don't show up and attendance is often taken. The grading depends a lot on the TAs. I got 100% on all assignment and thought this class is chill, but I also know other people who did poorly. I think the trick is to make the paper looks nice i.e. use a lot of graphs and make it pretty like a pitchbook in banking. For me, it is an easy A.

The material isn't hard and it is interesting.

Workload:

Individual paper, discussion, attendance, group paper.

McGourty, Jack and Dahlgren, Eric (TA)
[IEOR E4998] Manging Tech

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

First off, Jack missed well over half the semester. Columbia is finally cracking down on these nut jobs though. The IEOR department informed me that they will be choosing a new professor for next year. The TA's were awful human beings that looked as if they wanted to shoot your before they shot themselves.
I believe no one wanted to be in that room. The "special" presenters were also quacks filled with fluff. These people belong in the Business School and not in Fu.
Do not take a class with Jack. Fortunately, those who sign up for this class next year won't have to worry.

Workload:

10 pages per week
40-60 page business plan final
3 presentations
NOT WORTH IT!!
