Cases from a Student’s Perspective (They are awesome!)
My background COMM 486R: Leadership & General Management
We engage with the theory and learn from each other.
We learn to cooperate and work as a team What makes a team work well together?
We learn how to apply our knowledge & theory in practice What if we have to work outside of perfect economic assumptions?
It teaches us to ask questions Critical thinking, challenging assumptions and thorough reflection on a given problem are crucial skills.
It teaches us that there are more than one way to solve a problem. We can have different answers, and still both be right.
Cases are fun and dynamic, never boring and repetitive. “Hey, that reminds me of that case I once did on managing organizational change – I wonder if I can use what I learned then to solve this problem?”
In conclusion What I learn in a case takes years to forget, because I engage with the problems. – But I have already forgotten half of what I had on exams 10 weeks ago. Knowledge can be attained by reading. Skills have to be acquired by doing. Guess which one is most important.
