re: LSUS Online MBA Reviews - Unlockthedream
Based on what I've read here, there are no great options for MKT 701. For that reason, I saved it for the last class of the program. I figured that I'd have sufficient motivation to get through whatever is thrown at me at that point! I'm taking it with A. Darrat. Does anyone recall the name of the f...

Marketing 701 with A. Darrat: Does anyone recall what book was used when books were used? I'd like to take a preemptive strike at some reading in hopes of easing the tension when the course starts....

re: Banks for Small Business Account - Unlockthedream
Iberia Bank has been excellent. Great customer service and online banking. I use their Treasury Connect service and can always speak to a knowledgeable human being on the phone with virtually no wait time. Very good array of products. Capital One is a second option -- mostly because they are one ...

Your summer home / beach condo: Dream or Disaster? - Unlockthedream
My spouse and I are seriously considering purchasing a beach condo in Orange Beach, AL. The rationale is that we go there a few times a year anyway, are already real estate investors and can manage property, so why not branch out and invest there? What's your experience with owning property outsi...

Are you using Chrome as your browser for ACCT 701 assessments? When I've had similar technical issues in the past it was a result of using browsers that aren't fully compatible with Moodle. ...

re: LSUS Online MBA Reviews - Unlockthedream
@tigerlsus One page back on 308 someone mentions a text. I am also from a non-biz background and found that I needed to supplement Vines' notes with other sources in order to grasp the concepts. His notes contain acronyms that aren't defined, examples that skip some of the steps and things like tha...

re: LSUS Online MBA Reviews - Unlockthedream
Thanks, Socal. I slept on it and think I may just stay the course I already charted, which means MKT in the spring. ACCT 701 syllabus and text are now posted on Moodle, BTW. Call me old school but I am so grateful there's an actual textbook for this course. When you think about the collaborative ...

re: LSUS Online MBA Reviews - Unlockthedream
Would you give up a spot in ACCT with Ambrosio in order to take MKT 701 with Albers instead of James? I only have time to take one class per session so must choose. I hate to give up ACCT 701 this session -- I'm interested in the course and want to take it with Ambrosio -- but based on the discus...

re: LSUS Online MBA Reviews - Unlockthedream
Regarding the honor society invitations, I'm inclined to skip them. Beyond undergrad they just seem like pointless resume fluff. If you're going to join one, I'd say stick with those recognized by the university for some legitimacy. The administration recently sent an email with the information belo...

re: LSUS Online MBA Reviews - Unlockthedream
FIN 701 Module 1 is now available on Moodle for anyone who wants to get a jump start on reading/video review prior to start of Spring AP1. I plan to do so as soon as I complete the last ISDS 705 test this Friday. This is my first session with 2 courses so I'm grateful for the opportunity to get some...

Perhaps the managers at ProctorU should enroll in classes at LSUS to learn how to run a more effective operation! Seriously, if the customer experience expressed here is representative of the whole, they shouldn't be too pleased with themselves. For their part, I think LSUS admin could evaluate the ...

ISDS 705 exam 1 -- Definitely allow 20 minutes for the Proctor U process prior to starting the exam. You will log into Proctor U and the proctor will guide you through the process, which includes logging into Moodle where the proctor enters a code and the exam begins through the Moodle platform. ...

re: LSUS Online MBA Reviews - Unlockthedream
RE ISDS 705, my understanding is that we can use multiple monitors but not multiple computers. As in, you can't take the test on your laptop and have the book open on your desktop computer. I found this a little confusing since it seems okay to have the book open on a tablet (so why not another comp...
