For the past several years, Excelia Group has used case studies in its teaching of business and management.
- For our research-active faculty, cases are an opportunity to enhance their courses with real examples.
- For companies, cases give them the opportunity to re-examine some of their strategic decisions and, at the very least, to share good practice.
- For students, cases are the opportunity to learn through discussion and, ultimately, will improve their employability.
