Jill uses the case study approach to teaching, and believes that providing simulations to real life business problems is key to giving students valuable experience in practicing and experimenting with theories relevant to today’s business challenges.

Providing a safe environment where students can explore theory, challenge their current thinking, and gain mastery of the subject, is key to Jill’s approach to education. Independent thinking, active participation and having fun will help to aid deeper learning.
