What is the Case Method?

"The case method of analysis involves studying actual business situations in order to improve a [...] student's problem-solving ability. Cases typically investigate a contemporary issue in a real-life context.

Cases... elicit diverse ideas, experiences, and views about case material. In a relatively short period of time, students have the chance to appreciate and analyze problems faced by many different companies."
