Understanding and Mastering Case Studies in Technology and Entrepreneurship


Preparing students for managerial careers and real-world situations provides challenging. One way to simulate real-world situations and to deep-dive in realistic problem scenarios is via case studies. The case study method is the most widely used method in academia for researchers interested in qualitative research.

Case studies are in-depth studies of a person, group, organization, place, or event that allow the exploration and understanding of complex issues. In case study, a real-time phenomenon is explored within its naturally occurring context, with the consideration that context will create a difference. Case studies are used to test new ideas or theories, or they can be utilized to improve on existing ideas and theories. Case studies are present in almost all fields of study, but are particularly prevalent in psychology, sociology, and business.

In this course, students will learn to craft their own case studies and accompanying teaching notes. They will also learn how to use the case study in classroom and workplace, as well as other fields that successfully apply case studies.
