IAF640 - Business Cases I


IAF330, IAF410, IAF530, IAF541or IAF540 and LSP500

Business issues rarely manifest themselves as discrete concerns. The symptoms of an issue are often more obvious than their root cause. As well, the timing of dealing with a problem is seldom ideal. Building on disciplines studied in previous terms, this course synthesizes concepts and methodologies and provides students a framework to analyze various business situations into their component parts, to develop possible solutions and to hypothesize the most appropriate one. Using role play, students learn to conduct analyses that are tailored to their users and needs, learning that a "one size fits all" solution rarely works in the business world. Several cases are studied that incorporate real life situations and require both quantitative and qualitative analyses, with a view of developing and honing analytic and evaluative skills.
