Yo Mr. Schmidt is hella chill. I thought I wouldn't like Marketing but I love that i can just do other work. He's actually really knowledgeable. It's an easy A as long as you do EXACTLY what's asked of you on projects. Just talk to him a little so that he knows you exist, but you can keep to yourself. Ofc, the deca/fbla extra credit is amazing. Really not a bad class at all, and you do learn a little. really nice to have a low stress class in a hectic day.

Super knowledgable about the business world and life in general. The classes are all super chill, as in watch movies every single time. Principles of Business tests are pretty easy, but still be sure to join FBLA or DECA to get extra credit. Principles of Marketing was also super chill, there are no tests in that class. He only assigns projects every few weeks.

He is really knowledgeable about economics and business in general, but principles of business basically became a free period for me when he is at the DECA competitions and meetings. Also, in the second semester there are a lot of high work projects, but not hard, so don't be too scared. I got an A both semesters without DECA/FBLA extra credit, as long you study for the tests you should be fine. Try hard on the projects and don't get discouraged if you fail stock market game

He's hilarious. Princ of Business is an actual class (textbook reading and test). But in Princ of Marketing you just watch movies and bs really easy projects. Doesn't care if you sleep or do other work during his class. It's almost like a free period, but better.
