Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung
Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel
The students are required to purchase the case studies discussed in the curse.
The case method is one of the most effective pedagogical tools to sharpen your analytical and decision-making skills, as it requires you to be an active participant in financial decisions. The discussion constitutes an opportunity to defend your position and to learn from others, by listening to their comments and criticisms. The online Zoom sessions will be our training environments to prepare you for business challenges.
Regarding the cases, each group will submit a three-page memorandum of analysis and recommendations covering the case study questions plus any accompanying tables you wish to include. Tables should be well organized and labelled. Be sure to indicate how you arrived at your conclusions. In addition, groups are required to prepare a power point presentation, including the main points of the analysis.
