Abstract

The abilities to solve complex, unstructured problems and to communicate effectively are desirable in business school graduates. However, recent studies report deficiencies in Australian graduate attributes in problem solving, judgement and communication. The case method helps students develop these skills by providing realistic scenarios to practice making and defending their decisions which addresses the lack of engagement with real-world problems by business graduates identified as a widespread concern by industry, academics and professional associations. However, the lack of Australian cases and trained case educators are significant impediments. This project will enable Australian business school faculty to attend a Case Writing and Teaching Workshop at Bond or Monash and receive ongoing support in case teaching through the Australian Business Case Network. The project will promote student learning by increasing the capacity of Australian business educators in using the case method, in turn enhancing the quality and relevance of business education for professional preparation.
