Case Method for Leadership Development

The NUCB Business School introduced leadership development via case method instruction in 1990. Business cases introduce management issues faced by both domestic and international companies. Studying these cases allows you to raise your practical management skills by simulating business dilemmas, thus allowing you to debate and make decisions based on hundreds of varied cases, all from the stand-point of the key decision maker in the firm.

As managers, you are required to have analytical and presentation skills, logical thinking capability, as well as leadership skills. Through case method at our institution, you will obtain these skills via group and class discussions, as well as lectures.

Center for Case Teaching & Learning

With the goal of brushing up the teaching quality of business schools’ faculty members, we have founded the Center for Case Teaching & Learning. At the Center, experts offer information about case method research through seminars and lectures. The Center also supports training of business school faculty members, company management, and high school teachers in the active learning style of Case Method.
