Case method

The Case Method requires active participation and discussion. Cases are also not only about individual learning or decisions, but also rely on the work of  groups of co-learners. RBS has an agreement with Harvard Business School and has access to its many complex and insightful case studies. The case itself describes the scenario in the context of the events, people and factors that influence it within real business experiences. Every course of the Professional MBA program has cases that are discussed throughout the course. Although there is no substitute for experience, many of our students have said that case studies gave them the knowledge, the skills and confidence to deal effectively with a wide range of difficult decisions in their careers.
