There's only one way to learn the demanding art of leadership – and that's by leading. That's why IMI has been, and continues to be, rooted in the practical lessons of the case method.
By engaging students in business conflicts developed from real events, cases immerse students in the challenges they are expected to face. These challenges require thoughtful analyses with limited or even insufficient information within ambiguous circumstances or complex economic and political contexts. That, most of all, demands decisive action, which must be articulated – and even defended – among other talented, ambitious individuals.
Today, the case method has evolved into a sophisticated instrument, under the watchful guidance of carefully trained faculty, for transforming a student's potential talent into a powerful capacity for effective decision making.
