Quarter: Spring 2021
Grade: B
COVID-19 This review was submitted during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your experience may vary.
June 25, 2021

Honestly the class wasn't too bad but the professor was extremely unclear on the grading. She didn't upload the final grades till 2 days after the due date and we had no way of knowing why we got the grade we did. Tests and quizzes were unable to be reviewed so we could see what we did wrong, and it was frustrating to just randomly see a grade at the end with no real explanation. For the actual material, the professor is really nice and tells a lot about her own experience in the entrepreneurial space, which is really cool. She also had to deal with some issues in the beginning of the quarter so I can understand why she was a bit disorganized at the start. Overall, the professor is nice and a good lecturer to learn for knowledge's sake, but her confusing grading breakdown and that fact that the tests are not super related to what she lectures on makes it a hard class to recommend.

0 transparency about what went on in scoring tests or the final, no opportunities to review mistakes and learn or make regrade requests. Really tough to follow anything when the lectures don't help with tests, incorrect/unclear instructions for the most part.

Quarter: Spring 2020
Grade: A
COVID-19 This review was submitted during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your experience may vary.

Professor Kumar had a lot going on this quarter including quarantine and family issues which caused her to miss 5-6 lectures. The lectures which she was on Zoom for required participation which was 30% of the grade (Case study 10%, MT 25% Final 35%). Whats worse is that she grades participation so arbitrarily because other students I know and myself received a 90 for participation even after we completed all required activities and spoke in class. The midterm and final were take-home and she gave us permission to use the online textbook. It blows my mind how not everyone gets an 100 on these tests but the averages were like 88 for the mt and 91 for the final. Back to Kumar, her lectures are very engaging and she is always happy to be teaching but shes a little disorganized. She doesn't always post slides on time or can't figure out zoom etc. The good news was this class is an easy A but the bad news is I didn't learn much.

Quarter: Spring 2022
Grade: C-
Aug. 22, 2022

As a STEM student, this class was not my usual discipline. Finance and accounting was challenging for me, but I am pursuing the entrepreneurship minor and this class was absolutely necessary. Professor Kumar taught the class through an entrepreneurial lens. What better way to learn about funding an entrepreneurial venture than to learn from Professor Kumar who works in a venture capital firm and is an angel investor herself. She really understands how money works in the startup space.

Beyond her knowledge, she is incredible with the students. She engaged with us so well that attendance to an 8am class was always impeccable. She was brilliant in getting students to feel comfortable enough to engage freely in discussion. She is so easy to talk to, and several of us would be at her office hours 7am before class. Many of us received opportunities to connect with the guest speakers she brought in. Every student that I spoke with in the class said that she was the best professor they had, and I can agree. She genuinely cares and wants you to succeed both in the classroom and in life outside of the classroom.

Her exams were challenging for me, but be reminded that this was the first class I ever took in financing and accounting. Although I got a C-, I learned so much about how to make my entrepreneurial dreams come to life through Kumar. You would not regret taking this class.
