IV. 學期作業、考試、評量 (Course Evaluation)
個案討論 (Case Discussions)
Experience is the best teacher -- and this AMBA course provides the most divergent and colorful knowledge into every hour of learning among our executive students. In case analysis, students are introduced to the reality of decision making -- including incomplete information, time constraints, and conflicting goals -- giving you first-hand experience in analyzing new venture business situations. The exercises seek to provide not only a more in-depth understanding of specific entrepreneurship issues, but also to improve your interpersonal, leadership, and presentation skills. Your participation in these exercises is vital to your individual success and the success of the class. Thus, absences will work to your detriment in class in the same way they do in the workplace. You will miss important information and let down your work team.
