When it comes to real-world business challenges—we don't play pretend. Get an inside glimpse of how iPod revived Apple, what leadership challenges the first female CEO of eBay struggled with early in her tenure, or how the OPEC cartel is able to unilaterally manipulate oil prices.
Classes use real business cases as the basis for classroom discussion and team assignments. The case-based learning method challenges you to understand business problems from the corporate perspective. Use what you learn in class and what you know from your collective team experiences to recommend a solution. Through case-based teaching, you learn real-world lessons about making decisions with incomplete data and in times of uncertainty when there's no obvious right or wrong answer.
As you work through real-world cases, you obtain a new vocabulary, industry knowledge, and an appreciation for the human resource, management, and leadership challenges companies face every day. These case-by-case realizations will ultimately help you narrow and refine your career options and put you on a path to working in a business field you're passionate about.
