  • Toronata T: I expect each course in MIT is like this : To be inundated by the in depth and intensity of details and simplified frameworks. Professors Noe and Core were committed fully and very well prepared with cases and the answers during the class. They found way to bridge the lack of exposure in accounting among the participants by walking through the case step by step. This is What I expect from a course held by MIT professors. Thank you.
