Quarter Taken: Summer 2015 Submitted Sept. 29, 2016 Grade Received: A-

Professor Bob is the Man!! This was a ucla summer travel study to Hong Kong where you take 2 classes (International & Area Studies 100A and 100B) over the course of a month. 100A is all about learning effective communication and presentation skills. The course is structured very well as he uses a lot of methods from how he teaches his business school classes and the readings and lecture materials are not only helpful and insightful, but also easy reads you might find yourself wanting to read outside of a class setting. This course is very hands on where you do a few short presentations to practice your presentation skills, thus allowing you to get immediate feedback from the professor and your peers on how to improve and what things you well. Professor Bob is very engaging and cares about each students' learning and development, and in my opinion the classes were probably one of the better parts of the entire study abroad because of the information covered and his passion/expertise for the topic. I am a sociology major who took this course to get some in-class, business school type knowledge and was not the only non-econ student in the class looking for similar opportunities. I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in business and communication or those wanting to learn how to develop skills while expanding your mindset to a more global understanding of things.
