A case is a comprehensive exposition of real managerial cases describing a set of problems and requiring a plan of action. The case method provides a pragmatic framework for the learning process. Its success depends heavily on student preparation and active interaction in class discussions.

The main material and reference for each course will be the textbook mentioned in the course specifications. Lecture notes and slides are additional resources that are prepared by the professor.
