30 The Case Study Method  The method of learning from cases in actual practice (the so-called case study method) is an interactive and dynamic form of learning, based on principles of learning from real situations in management. Students and lecturers jointly analyse and discuss concrete cases, exchanging opinions and experiences and creating solutions that correspond to actual business decisions. In its teaching methods, the ZSEM continuously continually uses this useful and modern method of learning

31 The Simulation Method  Currently one of the most modern methods of learning that the ZSEM uses in its work is the simulation method. It is used in the higher years of undergraduate studies and is also very useful in graduate study work. The goal of this method is to place the student in a given role in which he or she must apply insights learned during instruction, as well as other skills, in order to best identifty with the given role and complete his or her task. One of the examples of simulation is Capestone, which simulates ways in which decision-making in a company influences its market position in the business environment.
