The School of Economics and Management adopts a student-centered approach to teaching and learning. The aim is to increase the students' capacity for advanced problem solving, resulting in better decision-making abilities. Our courses are based on state-of-the-art research in each particular field, and we encourage students' ability both in terms of critical thinking as well as in practical application.
Teamwork has been central to the Lund Learning Model for more than four decades. In today's highly competitive business environment, success most often belongs to the organization with the strongest teams. Today's managers must be effective team players who can blend collaboration, leadership, and communication skills to cooperate with others, and who can instill similar values in their employees. The Lundian approach uses innovative methods to engage students in goal-oriented projects that draw upon and refine teamwork skills. Team-building exercises, simulations, cases and conceptual models all help our students to become more effective both as team members and as leaders.
The overall aim is to make sure that our students are continually challenged to grow both individually and professionally by developing:
- an understanding of how global, technological and competitive forces shape and hence change business
- analytical problem solving skills that can be applied through the exercise of sound judgement and responsibility
- strong multicultural communication and teamwork skills
