Teaching Approaches

Instead of being limited to a single teaching approach, each course in the graduate programs of the School of Management combines different methodologies in varying proportions for optimal learning outcomes.

  • Master Classes: These classes are focused on theoretical approaches that professors bring to life with examples in order to improve student understanding of subjects.
  • Case Studies: Both national and international case studies allow students to look at different areas of organizations in real situations through interaction with peers and professors, which develops critical and analytical thinking abilities in addition to communication, argumentative, and persuasion skills.
  • Reports and Projects: In each course, students are faced with the need to find information, analyze concepts, and make decisions, aiding them in the incorporation of research methodologies into management processes.
  • Simulation Games: Participants embark on the exercise of creating a strategy and implementing different mechanisms and tools to then advance and monitor its execution. Students learn about the risks that are inherent in the decision-making process and how to estimate them, as well as the impact of corrective measures. Management simulation software allows for the effective integration and consideration of most areas of an organization, their interrelationships, and their complexities when implementing a strategy.
