NUCB Undergraduate School Presents: Case Method Virtual Experience Days
NUCB Undergraduate School is offering prospective students the opportunity to join our case method experience days free of charge. This is the perfect chance to be a part of a real demonstration of the case method with participants from all over the world to fully understand if this MBA style teaching methodology is a good fit for you.
This method was first used at Harvard in the early 20th century and has since become hugely popular thanks to its effectiveness in developing knowledge, skills, and attitudes among experienced students.
The case method is at the core of the NUCB Undergraduate School academic experience. In its simplest form, each case is a simulation of a real-world business problem, and students are expected to take on the role of the protagonist, or decision-maker, to solve that problem and discuss the reasoning or logic behind each of their decisions.
Why teach using cases?
Unlike lectures in which students passively receive knowledge taught by their professors, at NUCB, it’s mainly the students who contribute ideas in dynamic learning classes. We firmly believe that the best way to learn to make professional business decisions is by making them in a safe, academic environment. Case discussions bring energy to the classroom and students are able to engage in the case rather than watching or reading about how it is done by others.
