Four faculty members in the Joseph M. Bryan School of Business and Economics at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro have won an award in a national competition for an integrative case that they developed for use as a teaching device in the school's MBA degree program.
The four are Dr. Lew Brown, assistant professor of management and marketing and first author; Dr. Terry Mullins, associate professor and head of the Department of Management and Marketing; Dr. Larry Taube, associate professor of information systems and operations management; and Dr. Tony Wingler, associate professor of finance.The four wrote an integrative case that can be used in as a teaching device in different courses in the MBA program. The case study method is widely used in teaching in the Bryan School of Business and Economics. The integrative case has the advantage of being used across the boundaries of individual courses.
The winning integrative case, titled the SecureHome Inc., was submitted to the North American Case Research Association last year in Atlanta. Out of the 120 cases presented at the meeting, the UNCG case was selected to receive the Curtis E. Tate Jr. Award for the outstanding case presented at the annual meeting. The faculty members received a plaque signifying the award.
