Tufts University: Sheryl Read - Entrepreneurial Leadership - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
I have taken all of the Entrepreneurial Leadership classes at Tufts, including Business Law and Accounting and the only professor I liked less than Sheryl Read was Jeremy Halpern (ELS 107). Professor Read means well, she is enthusiastic about the class, and she is a very nice lady. I agree with all of these things from the one review that is already posted here. But I just don't think that Sheryl Read has many worthwhile things to say outside of talking about the material from the book. The class's saving grace is that it involves the presentation of business plans at the end of the semester, but it is much to formulaic otherwise, relying heavily on a text which is just not very good. Having said all of this, this is not a bad class, you can learn something if you are brand new to the idea of entrepreneurship and you don't know what a venture capitalist is. And you should probably start with this class if you are interested in the Entrepreneurial Leadership program at Tufts. My advice, however, would be to take the class with whoever else is teaching it.
Work in the class is made up of readings from the text, which are discussed in class, and for which you are required to write small summaries/analyses. The business plan is a maor component of what you do and there is also a short exercise in public speaking and a paper that requires you to interview an entrepreneur.
