Case Method

Case Method is a unique and highly effective teaching and learning tool in which actively engages students in group and teamwork discussions. Thus, case method places an emphasis on involving students actively in solving problems by studying examples of real problems that have occured or may possibly occur in society in the future.
For leadership education, case method has been proven as one of the most effective teaching and learning tools, especially in degree programs such as the MBA and BBA. Recently, though, junior and senior high schools have also begun to adopt case method due to the educational effectiveness of this approach.
