Professor Goi conducted the 5th online session of the semester-long Case Writing seminar course, which is a capstone module for the MBA Program. Students will need to fulfill the requirements of completing their business case and insight notes through this course. The case study should reflect any chosen organization’s perspective as well as their own, showing the challenges, issues and opportunities faced by the decision-makers while laying out a factual story about the situation from which readers can draw insights and conclusions.
Insight notes are written for the purposes of the course instructor and include the case synopsis, its learning objectives, as well as the case questions, providing the strategic framework for uncovering the answers to these questions so they can be effectively taught in a course using the case method style of teaching.
As many students are working on their final submissions which they will have to present and defend in front of two faculty members at the end of their degree program, this course has kept them on track by assessing their progress and helping them to analyze and understand the framework of a case. In his course, Prof. Goi explores ideal examples of well-composed cases to illustrate more specifically the different components of a case. Students also shared working drafts of their own cases and their presentations.
