WHAT DO WE TEACH AND HOW DO WE TEACH

At graduate level, we believe that the instructor’s responsibilities include:

  • Asking the right questions
  • Leading the class discussions
  • Helping the students find their own solution to the problems raised.
  • We do ask the “WHAT” and “WHY” questions. But we also teach the “HOW”!
  • Apart from teaching theory and facts, our primary goal is applying the knowledge and gaining practical skills.
  • We employ leading-edge teaching techniques, such as: case studies, role plays, problem solving, individual and team projects, and simulations.

By doing this, we have learned from the best – Harvard Business School. So far, we have 16 faculty members holding a teaching certificate according to the Participant- Centered Learning methods.
During the lectures, we use case studies designed by some of the best business schools in the world, as Harvard Business School and Darden School of Business.
