Exercises I and II
Yosuke Meshitsuka

Developing a personal approach to interpreting and theorizing

Exercises I and II are compulsory subjects in Year 3, where small groups use the MESE business simulator to investigate corporate accounting systems and business strategy and develop decision-making and communication skills for the real world of business. Using the case study of the supermarket that provides suggested meal ideas, students explore the historical background and produce a presentation recounting the backstory. In addition to introducing real-world success stories, this exercise helps students to hone their analytical and presentation skills. "In the Department of Business Administration we teach students about economics and management theory," says Meshitsuka, "but we also want them to develop their own analytical approach to interpreting real-world data and developing hypotheses and theories to explain the story behind the data." Practical exercises are used to equip students with the skills to investigate and analyze events and phenomena in the real world.
