Challenge 4

The case teaching method


Developed by Harvard University the case teaching method places strong emphasis on problem-oriented, project-based learning. Students on the Master's in Energy Transition work on specific, real-world challenges set by our business partners: partners provide the context and the background; students take the lead in analysing the problem, assessing potential solutions, and making recommendations. On presenting their solutions, students also find out how their proposal compares to what the challenge-setter did in real life.
