Student Feedback

Machine Learning 2
 
“I can’t say enough great things about Professor Chung. She was extremely prepared for every class, and clearly communicated her passion for the subject. She also shows kindness and care for the students, adapting teaching methods based on feedback. I really liked that she did not shy away from covering the more mathematical/complicated concepts and explained them very clearly. I think the entire MSBA program should follow the direction of this course.”
 
“I really enjoyed class with Professor Chung this semester. I wasn’t a big fan of machine learning coming in, but after her class and teaching I feel a lot better about it. It is obvious that she cares about the well-being of her students and really wants to see them learn. Professor Chung was engaging, receptive to questions, and really went above and beyond to help us throughout the course whether it was study guides / code cheat sheets, review sessions, coding sessions, and overall just being readily available to answer any questions we have. It would have been really nice to have her for ML1 and ML2. “
 
“Dr. Chung was one of the best professors I have ever had!”
 
“Professor Chung is awesome at teaching!!! Learned so much this semester!. Assignment workload is appropriate and kept us in check. Much better than just Mid term and final exam.”
 
“Dr. Chung cares very deeply about her students and it shows in everything she does.”
 
“Dr. Chung is a great professor! I think the program has gained so much by her joining [the MSBA program].”
 
“It is evident how caring, and how incredibly knowledgeable Dr. Chung is. She makes a great professor for machine learning and I think an excellent addition to the WM faculty. I had the pleasure of also seeing some of the background procedures she had, and I know she cares for her students and for how she teaches her courses.”
 
“Best best best teacher! I appreciate Professor Chung’s effort in preparing all the helpful materials for us, and never gives us a hard time, instead, Professor Chung saves everyone’s interest in machine learning as well as our grade. Thankful!”
 
“Whatever I learned in ML is solely because of you. You have a great way of teaching and especially connecting with students. I can’t thank you enough!”
 
“BEST BEST BEST BEST BEST INSTRUCTOR IN PROGRAM!!!!!!!!!!”
 
MBA Data Analysis
 
I really enjoyed your class and learned a lot. I can already see in Session B how the work we did in your class relates to so many parts of business! Again, thank you for the time and effort you put into the class. I always felt like you had the students’ best interest at the front of your mind! “
 
“I finally felt like I had enough of a foundation to really follow/understand the new material. I’m thankful to have a professor that listens carefully to student needs and works so hard to make sure they are met.”
 
“It was an entirely different way of approach statistics by using software versus hand calculations – very interesting!”
“This course provided much more insight into statistical models and how to use them to effectively analyze data sets. The real–world application that this course provided was very fascinating and I’m sure it will serve us well throughout the remainder of the MBA program and our careers.”
 
“I have worked with data before but not having statistics made it very difficult to understand the specifics so now knowing the values and formulas I feel more confident.”
 
“The class dataset was extremely useful. It allowed us to follow along during class lectures and provided great study material.”
 
“The class dataset was my favorite part. It was helpful to keep revisiting it each week. It was interesting to see how we built upon the concepts each week using the same dataset.”
 
“The class dataset a fun way to go about teaching a difficult subject”
 
Advanced Modeling Techniques
 
“Dr. Chung is a great professor and I’m very grateful to have gotten the chance to learn from her.”

“Working on the term project individually forced me to debug all problems (and there were many), and it was one of the few times I was tasked with designing a spreadsheet and VBA code from scratch. This is far more useful (but significantly tougher) than writing code on a pre-designed spreadsheet.”
 
Information Systems and Operations/Analytics
 
“Dr. Chung is by far one of the best professors I have met at Chatham. As an advisor, she is extremely helpful and primes students for success by sending us opportunities via e-mail on a weekly basis as well as talking with her advisees regularly.

“Dr. Chung is my Research professor for the spring 2013 semester. Our project for this semester is to utilize effective research techniques while competing in the Google Online Marketing Challenge. Dr. Chung’s course has been exceptionally enlightening because, in addition to learning the research, we have been learning up to date online marketing skills that will be valuable as we commence into our management positions. Dr. Chung works very hard to ensure we are provided with the opportunity to learn the course material and to develop our skills as professionals. Dr. Chung is dedicated, challenging, and above all, she is encouraging.””I like having the class lectures in writing to review, along with the reading materials assigned, along with the learning videos. All of this really re-enforces what I am reading and learning. I feel repetition gives you that deeper sense of learning.”

Dr. Chung was my advisor for the MBA program.  She was always the person that I turned to for any help.  This program was a challenge for me but she made me feel like she was there with me every step of the way.  This is something I really appreciated and feel lucky to have had her in my program.” — Dan Riley

Dr. Rachel Chung serves as a pillar in my education to this day. From the start of her tenure, Dr. Chung pushed me to take analytical courses, to learn new systems and programs, and to network with the local business community. Her mentorship directly impacted the foundation I was able to build for my own career, and I am so grateful to her. Recently, I was able to sit down with her for lunch where she graciously shared a wealth of advice on how to approach my upcoming MBA work and internships. Her focus on continuous education showed through in our discussion and made me feel energized to continue growing with direction. I feel this quality makes a true mentor, and I feel so lucky to have Dr. Chung as mine.”
