Industry-Academia Interactions

  • Two Field Cases are also being developed from the SEMAP Program (Entrepreneurship MDP).
  • All field cases development requires a close interaction of the IMT Faculty with the proposed case company. Most of the interactions result in comprehending and appreciating importance of the issues that each thought were inexistent.
  • Library cases help to bring out cases that could not be done on field for physical inability to get to the company and its operations. Moreover, usually cases on industry or economy warrant a library case approach over a field case approach.
