Which class has been your favorite? Any favorite instructors? Why?

My favorite class at enterprise finance with Professor Jean Dunn. In just 10 weeks he teaches you all the fundamentals of finance along with specific skills such as company valuation and financial modeling, giving his students enough to put on their resume to start a career. His goal is to equip his students with all the necessary resources so that they are ready to apply their recently acquired skills in the workplace right after the last class.
