Marketing Text It is essential to invest in modern teaching methods which will bring academic knowledge closer to economic reality and will produce university graduates who are prepared for entering the job market and who are equipped with the abilities and skills that employers seek. If students had the opportunity to explore specific business situations in the classroom, the teaching/learning process would certainly be more effective, employers would be more contented, and the graduates’ professional qualifications would be enhanced. The case study method is a perfect example of innovative and experiential teaching method which can be used not only in the classroom but also for the vocational education.
