The case study method pioneered by Harvard Business Schools enables working professionals to assimilate theory better and apply the concepts to the real world. This method puts students in real-world business situations and challenges them to analyse, assess and make business decisions. They have to then defend these decisions in a classroom full of opinionated peers from diverse backgrounds. It is this rigorous process of testing your analytical ability on a daily basis that truly prepares you for leadership roles.
At the heart of the case study method is the faculty who facilitates the discussions and ask those all-important questions that lead to an ‘aha’ moment of learning.
At Manipal GlobalNxt University, we have perfected the case study method for the virtual platform. Our students thrive on the discussion boards and enjoy every bit of this experience, coming out not only better prepared for management positions but also with a more balanced and well-rounded perspective. Our faculty are master trainers in the case study method and work closely with students to bring out the best in them and push them to think beyond the obvious.
