HOUSTON (June 12, 2019) – Texas Southern University’s Jesse H. Jones School of Business is partnering with a leading provider of business case method training – Ivey Business School – for a four-day case teaching and writing workshop. The event will be held June 24-27, 2019, on the TSU campus hosted by the Gerald B. Smith Center for Entrepreneurship & Executive Development. TSU faculty in the School of Business will participate in the training, and other interested faculty from area universities are also invited to attend, though space is limited. The cost of the workshop is $1,995, including refreshments and lunches throughout the program.
Participants will discuss case teaching during the first day of the workshop, followed by intensive and focused case writing on the final three days. Each day will run from 9 a.m.- 4 p.m. Dr. Roderick White, professor emeritus of general management and strategy at Ivey Business School, will conduct the workshop.
“Bringing Ivey Publishing case teaching and writing workshops to TSU gives faculty an incredibly valuable professional development opportunity,” said Dr. Claudius Claiborne, interim dean of the School of Business. “Case method training is an important component within the curriculum of our degree programs. In the end, it is our students who will benefit from this training.”
Case teaching and writing workshops explore real-life business scenarios, and TSU has partnered with several local businesses, including A Rocket Moving & Storage, Ortega, and Shipley Do-Nuts, to give the workshops a distinct Houston flavor. Participants will interview key leaders of these businesses to develop their cases.
“The cases to be explored will mean that much more, given that they are local and more relatable to the participants,” added Dr. Claiborne.
