Teaching Characteristic:HABC EMBA-Harvard Case Study for Critical Thinking
The educational goal for HABC EMBA is to nurture management talents who have great appetite for innovation and entrepreneurship and global vision. In 2015, HABC EMBA has pioneered to adopt the teaching method practiced at the Harvard Business School: participant-centered case study. It strengthens combination of theory and practice and encourages interaction between teachers and students and students’self-reflection.
On average, each EMBA student is required to go through 30 cases. Through case discussion students with different industrial backgrounds may expand their visions and appreciate different ideas. Furthermore, in the process of argument, they are able to learn diversified knowledge, obtain insights, and thus enhance their analytical and problem-solving abilities in their operation and management practice.
One month before course, professor will send syllabus and prerequisite to participants. The participant can communicate mutually with HABC professor and coordinator by email, wechat,internet, phone or fax, and utilize HABC online resource.
Each Foreign language professor from HABC will be equipped with a Chinese co-faculty, who is responsible for course preview and review, communication and answering question during the whole course. That is one feature of our program.
