The case study method (or case method) of learning is a powerful tool for you to learn and apply concepts introduced in courses to real-life situations, strategies, and dilemmas faced by professionals and companies in the fashion industry. As an outcome of analyzing fashion business cases, you will practice problem-solving and communication skills necessary for your future success. You will be exposed to a variety of issues and problems within the fashion industry, understanding such dilemmas are not unique to a particular company or organization but are part of working within the fashion industry.
The power of learning from case studies comes not only from your analysis of the case study but also from written assignments and group/class discussions. As such, you may be required to complete written analyses and/or oral presentations around the case study. The case study method of learning is inductive and experiential; often with no single “correct” answer. In fact, you may disagree with conclusions or recommendations made by others in your class. These assignments and activities will provide you with an opportunity to express, support, and defend your conclusions and recommendations as well as learning from others in your class.
