Dr. Vijay D. Patil had visited the DYPUSM campus and exhorted us to follow the case study method of pedagogy. Subsequently Dr. Vijay D. Patil requested the DYPUSM to conduct a case study discussion at the virtual class room at Nerul.
DYPUSM conducted 3 case studies, each case of 30 pages and all from the Harvard School. The cases pertained to International Business, Marketing and Finance and was led by DYPUSM faculties – Prof. Vivek Arunchalam, Dr. Gagandeep Nagra and Dr. Vani Kamath with moderation and guidance by Prof. Dr. R. Gopal.
Faculties from Medical, Dental and RAIT and other schools at Nerul were invited by Dr. Vijay D. Patil. More than 15 faculties from all other streams participated vigorously in the same. Dr.Sanjay Oak, Vice Chancellor, also participated in the deliberations.
Dr. Vijay D. Patil asked all the other school faculties to emulate the manner and the process that was followed by DYPUSM and also shared his views on the case study method, his experience when he visited around 15 universities in the USA including the Harvard. He said “I am very pleased with DYPUSM on the way they have gone about the entire study”. He also said that we should continue to use this method and should use the virtual class room for this purpose.
