Case Study Method

The case study method presents students with hundreds of real business scenarios and offers them the chance to propose solutions. The approach opens up a forum where students discover new perspectives and broaden their understanding of key issues. This intense and challenging method means that students learn to make business decisions and take action by thinking, arguing and defending their interpretations and recommendations against a multitude of equally plausible solutions. 

Interactive Lectures

Interactive Lectures from the program's expert faculty provides students with a global view of the management profession and an overview of the different functional areas within a company.

Team-building sessions

Team-building sessions foster networking and teamwork skills among students, and give them a supportive environment in which they can analyze and discuss what they've learned.
