Are you and your undergraduates missing out?
|Discover the case method|
Exciting and inspiring
The case method has been associated with post-graduate management education for over a century – but a growing number of teachers are discovering that it’s also an exciting and inspiring way to teach undergraduates. Make sure your undergraduates don’t miss out.
What is the case method?
Cases describe real-life situations usually involving a tricky challenge or decision being faced by the case protagonist. Class participants can 'step into the shoes' of the protagonist to discuss possible solutions and analyse the pros and cons of various approaches to the problem. Find out more
Lessons remembered for life
The case method is guaranteed to bring your classroom alive. Your students will learn to think differently and more effectively; find out how to argue a point and present their analyses; and take on board new ideas and concepts. It’s a great way to introduce your students to the real world of work and business and is an excellent preparation for postgraduate education and employment.
