Project Summary

This project aims to develop students’ problem-solving, decision-making and interpersonal skills through the application of theoretical knowledge to industry-relevant cases. The cases will allow students to test their knowledge acquired in the classroom against practice, which will reinforce their learning. With such enhanced learning, students will develop ability to adapt and adjust to fast evolving environments through self-reflection while still drawing on finance curriculum. The project further aims to provide a more meaningful learning experience where student engagement and interaction with their instructors, TAs, and peers are significantly enhanced. The impact and outcome of the project are that it will allow instructors to move the focus away from lectures and exams only, to a richer, student-centric learning experience. In the long term, employers and society will benefit from graduates who are more equipped to face real-world personal or corporate financial problems.
