Case Studies

Some years ago, the Department started to produce case studies to be used in the courses related to Business Administration.

The case method is worldwide perceived as a pedagogical tool useful to enhance the student’s analytical skills and also to achieve a more active teaching. In some universities and business schools this is the preferred method to teach business administration.

A case includes a description of a business situation, usually between 5 and 60 pages, with the aim that the student can prepare it in order to identify the measures that can solve the problems of the company. These measures are analyzed and discussed in class with the active participation of the students.

All UPF cases are registered at the CREFC (Research Center of Financial Economics and Accounting).
