Case Study Methodology
The course pedagogy stresses on learning with extensive Case Study discussions and presentations. It is a unique way of observing any natural phenomenon which exists in a set of data. Case Studies, used for analyzing and solving practical business problems and building and testing business theories are designed and conducted with scientific rigor.
Professors compile their selected case studies and readings into a course outline, which is distributed as course compendium at the start of each term. The case studies are either developed in house, or procured through renowned case houses like Ivey, Harvard Business School etc. Usually the class is divided into study groups who jointly solve and present a case, analyzing the complete real life situation, associated questions and accompanying business decisions dilemmas. Taking the student through solving hundreds of such decision dilemmas improve their decision making skills keeping in mind diverse perspectives. Overall, case studies create an interactive learning environment within the classrooms.
