Case Course (8013926)

Current Issues

The Case course is only offered in the winter semester. Current information can be found here. The Case course will be held this year as an in-person class with the partner companies being on site. If the pandemic situation requires it, we will be able to switch to a virtual (remote) concept.

Content

The initial session will provide an overview of relevant methods for solving case studies. Furthermore, a substantial part of the course will focus on three specific case studies that will be presented and discussed in collaboration with real companies.

Throughout the course the case studies will be solved by the participants independently in a small group setting. The results will be presented in front of a joint jury comprising company and university representatives. An additional introduction into basic methods of solving and presenting case studies will be provided as well.

Objectives

Students know common methods for solving case studies and are able to apply these in practice. They are able to recognize problem situations within a corporate context, identify causes, derive solutions and successfully present them in the context of case studies.
