The case method is the preferred teaching approach for MBA students and executives at the world's leading business schools, and is increasingly being used to teach undergraduate students.

The tutor will show how different cases can provide the basis for dynamic classroom discussions leading to new insights and understanding that meet pre-determined learning objectives across a multitude of disciplines within management education.
Throughout the day, the tutor will demonstrate how to ensure maximum participant involvement and get the most out of the case study. By providing feedback on the mechanics of the teaching session both during and afterwards, the tutor will illustrate best practice and provide useful hints and tips on how to improve the classroom experience for both students and teachers.
