This is a discussion based course, which means that the instructor does not lecture at all. Each class period we focus on one piece of reading and dive deep into it. It is a very fun course and I still remember a ton of things from this class, so it is definitely worth taking if you are interested in historical enterprises and firms!

I love this course! It is one of the best courses I have ever taken at Midd. Gregg is extremely passionate about the materials and she knows everything about the industrial revolution. Exams are not very hard as long as you do a quick review.

This course was a lot of work with a lot of reading. Could never really take your foot off the gas, and you really had to do the readings for each class. 2 dense readings (economic journal articles) per week for 8 weeks straight. Some were pretty dry but some were super fascinating. If you're interested in corporate finance, law, or academia, it will be relevant material for you. There were two somewhat challenging midterm essays along with a big final research project. Each class is led by a different student facilitator, with help from Gregg. That being said, Gregg is an absolutely awesome professor. She's incredibly brilliant, great at facilitating discussion and helping students, and very well organized. I also really appreciate how much Gregg seemed to care about improving our writing. She gave really helpful feedback and taught some lessons specifically on writing techniques. This class is the ultimate liberal arts experience. Take this course, you'll feel really smart and take away a lot from it.
