CASE Analysis
During the course 3-caseswill be reviewed. Cases will be distributed or uploaded into Xlearn. As these cases are under
copyright protection, no photocopies, scanning, photographs, uploading onto net, e-mail etc or duplication of any kind is
permitted, without explicit permission. These cases should only be used exclusively for this class.

For case preparation, students should read the case themselves, discuss in their individual groups and bring their analysis
and questions to the case presentation class. This will ensure the session is highly interactive. Students will be graded in the
class based on their participation. If the faculty feels that a person or team has not prepared adequately, they will be asked
to leave the class.
