Tufts University: Marcelo Bianconi - Economics - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Marcelo Bianconi | EC012 - Intermediate Macroeconomics | Economics2005-03-16

Review:
The professor is honestly pretty bad at teaching. He has no concern for whether you understand the material or not, and is less than enthusiastic to help you understand it outside of class. He also chose a very hard to read textbook for intermediate macro making the course more difficult than warranted. He seems adamant in his beliefs of Classical Economic Theory, and doesn't give the Keynesian model the credit that is due. All in all, I would not recommend him as a teacher.

Workload:
Workload is decent. Assignments aren't that bad either. No papers for this course.

Marcelo Bianconi | EC012 - Intermediate Macroeconomics | Economics2004-07-11

Review:
I thought Professor Bianconi was very nice and good at conveying the lessons to students. However, if you didn't understand the lessons he was not accessible outside of class. He wouldn't respond to e-mails or return phone calls, and if you asked him questions outside of class he wasn't very interested in helping. He also seemed to dislike students challenging a point in his lesson and he couldn't explain/defend things very well. So basically, as long as you understand what he is saying, and agree with it, he is a good teacher. I wouldn't take another class with him because even though I did well in Ec 12, I am afraid of what would happen if I took a class that was harder. If I didn't understand it, I certainly couldn't go to him for help!

Workload:
I took Ec 12 in the summer so there really wasn't a workload. He gave us "practice" exams that he chose the questions for our exams from. So as long as you did the practice questions, you were set for the exam. I don't know if he does that during the year though.
