Not sure if this has been posted or not.

"While case studies have historically worked well as they bring our students close to business practice, there's no reason why with the advance of technology and the world becoming more accessible, we can't provide our students with even richer experiences and bring them even closer to practice. I'd love to explore ideas on how to structurally institutionalize new forms of learning including simulations, IXPs, group exercises." - Dean Nitin Nohria

Hmm.. I guess every business school is trying to reinvent itself. GMAC has also made it quite clear by announcing the GMAC innovation challenge. With the new integrated reasoning structure section addition to GMAT, it would be a last piece of the puzzle to really challenge old ways and pave way for the newer set of learning options....

makes one wonder what caused the 'desire' or need for change.

i highly doubt the teaching method will stray far from the case method, as it's the core belief of the program..
