School of Entrepreneurship and Business Administration started the first Case Center in Central Asia in August 2016.
Teaching with Cases
The heart of AUCA and SEBA is a commitment to students and excellent teaching. The Case Center provides coaching to professors and assists professors in accessing internationally screened cases suitable for each professor’s course.
The Case Center intends to publish a small number of cases and teaching notes. The goal is to create a collection of cases in and about Central Asia. Experienced professors, either with or without a research assistant, write most cases. However, doctoral students, consultants and in-house corporate consultants may also write cases.
Learning with Cases
Cases and the case method are opportunities to acquire simulated real-life experience in the safety of a classroom. The required or recommended readings provide theory. The Case Method develops skills such as rapid absorption of complex information, analytical & technical skills, decision making skills, theoretical conceptualization, time management skills, interpersonal skills, creative skills and communication skills.
Case competitions are a fun way for students to develop analytical and presentation skills in a highly competitive, stressful and international environment. SEBA’s Case Center is planning major announcements concerning international case competitions.
