We had two cases a day here, one each for econ, strategy, management and accounting. Most were HBS written, with a few from Ivey and the occasional custom faculty versions. I can't imagine cramming in another one daily, plus an additional three on Saturday. That's about 75~100 pages of academic material per day (not including supplemental text reading), right?

Does Darden employ the case method for statistics too?


We don't have a normal statistics course. We have something called decision analysis which involves some statistics, and it is taught with 100% case method. One good thing about the challenging curriculum is that we seem to get a lot of respect from recruiters that we are hard working and learn a lot. Granted, we meet with a lot of Darden alums but it seems to help.


I won't argue with the academic rigor of your program Pelihu. Most schools probably require a specified amount of graduate level work, just not all rely entirely on the case based method. We had "consultant's corner" word problems in stats along with a cornacopia of textbook challenges and megastat summary reports for ANOVA, multiple regression, etc. We also had other math applications with marginal cost/revenue functions in econ. Sounds generic and perhaps unnecessarily pedantic, but that't the first quarter here - balance of theory and real cases. Next quarter we roll up our sleeves and consult local firms for experiential credit.

Curious how Darden integrates the theory and calculus involved in solving (and applying) DS and econ equations into a case?

It laid the platform for an interesting class discussion. We watched a video about the the company after the discussion.

How about "Optical Distortion"? It's an HBS case about a company that wants to put contact lenses in chickens. Seriously. One of the greatest cases of all time.
