Operational management decisions, strategic management options, financial management choices, marketing management opportunities – these realistic scenarios, these actual cases are the fodder for the pedagogical underpinnings of today’s business schools.
How does a pre-med student work with a family to select the proper course of treatment for a life-threatening illness? How does a team of engineering students select the proper materials for a construction project? How do marketing students manage a proposed new product introduction?
