Your subject-specific guide to using library resources.
Case Studies are popular for the Business School as they allow students to analyse information and issues which feature companies or scenarios.
These can be a real life example or a fictional scenario to help illustrate a particular point. They help to bring complex theories to life and allow students to learn within a specific context.
They normally involve problem solving and can result in different viewpoints or approaches being offered. The facts and details are important but as a student you'll need to make a judgement of what you would do. This involves making a decision of what to do, or recommend, what aspect to tackle first and why. What evidence supports your decision.
