Read what students from other classes by Dr. Schmidt said about their experiences:

Stan B., Summer 07 Coastal Policy Class:
This class was not only very informative with "tons" of information that we all should really be aware of, but you made the class fun as well.  If you ever do another "online" class I would be the first person to sign up.  It was that good!

Deb P., Summer 07 Coastal Policy Class:
This has turned out to be a very informative class - from the readings, videos, and discussions to the local information that I learned. This was the best use of WebCT that I saw during the whole MBA program. I appreciate the opportunity I had to be part of this class, and I would definitely recommend it in the future to others.
