Case Method: Think, Argue and Learn
It is important that you adequately prepare for assigned case discussions prior to each class session. You will be expected to have reviewed and “solved” the case prior to the actual class discussion. Individual case solution to assignments should be uploaded to Google Classroom well before the class and it will be graded.

At the beginning of each class session, 15 minutes will be dedicated to group discussion on case(s) that have been assigned for discussion on that day. The member of each group will be randomly assigned at the beginning of each class session. Within the group, you are expected to first individually reflect on how you would answer the questions for the case. Then you should clarify your individual analysis in the class discussion session. Active discussion on both the group and in-class sessions is encouraged and will be assessed.

授業調査に対するコメント Comment on Course Evaluation

"Well-prepared exercises, discussion forum on Google Classroom"
"Some calculations are very easy to get wrong; I think it's mostly because the data in the case can be difficult to identify at times."
"The Google Sheets activities are very useful to apply concepts to the case and practice.
The course isn't too technical, so it's easy to understand as long as you read the case.
The class looks beyond the numbers, connecting them with events in the case and giving them more relevance."
