Darden Executive Education Case Study Approach:
Darden’s case method is one of the best ways for managers to develop themselves into better business leaders. In our Executive Education program, you and your colleagues will actively examine real-life business situations, utilizing your experiences and insights in new ways while practicing your newly learned skills. Small group discussions and classroom debriefs ensure that you will benefit from the diversity of experience and perspective of your fellow classmates.
Studying a case is like solving a real problem in the business world. To be engaged in the learning process, you need to understand the issues of the case, to make a decision as a business leader, and to be able to articulate and defend that decision. It is important that you have a position on each business issue, and that you come to class prepared to participate. Your preparation should help you develop a point of view regarding the problem, a recommendation, and an analysis to back up your view.
