Case Method


The Case Method is a learning method rapidly made famous by Harvard's "Incandescent Classroom." As a pioneer of Case Method education, NUCB Business School contributes toward its research and the development. To increase the quality of domestic business schools' teaching methods, the Center for Case Teaching & Learning has been established as an authority for educators and case developers to share best practices in the classroom. The center's mission is to translate top-quality cases that have been developed worldwide, and, more importantly, to hold workshops conveying the value and attraction of Case Method education to a large number of educators.

    It was a valuable experience to be in an environment where I could compete seriously with other students with various careers. I have learned there are things I cannot achieve despite my best efforts, but at the same time have discovered my own assets which I value and can improve upon. Now, I continually challenge myself to something new, making the best contribution to my business which, as someone who has obtained the SME management consultant qualification and MBA, I am now able to do.
