WACs complement the use of the case method as the primary teaching and learning methodology in the program. Akin to a project proposal, a WAC mirrors the real world. Your work will involve write-ups of various kinds. You need to read, think through, work out the numbers if necessary, analyze, organize, draft, type out, and print your report under time pressure. The WAC objective is to develop the skill of logical analysis, leading to a sound conclusion and action plan.
Crafting a WAC may take up a small proportion of your total time in school, but the learning you will derive from the experience will be beneficial to your development as an effective manager.
