“Many business school classroom experiences are oriented toward simply building student understanding of common theory and tools. But the best classroom experiences, I find, go beyond just building understanding and facilitate building student decision-making judgement with regard to the common theory and tools.
“Case-based teaching provides a powerful learning environment for building judgement as students are invited to make real-world decisions in challenging and ambiguous situations by exercising judgement in how to apply common theory and tools. This opportunity to practice exercising judgement makes case-based teaching not only a powerful way to train business leaders but an engaging way to really understand the common theory and tools.
“Powerful case material that builds student judgement is centred on decision-making tension, ample and appropriate opportunity for the application of theory and tools, and real-world ambiguity in the data required.”
