Special Panel

Room: Meeting Room 8

Session Chair:
Idalene Kesner, Indiana University


“Real options” has emerged as an intriguing and important tool for evaluating strategic initiatives in an uncertain and increasingly risky environment. Panel members will discuss the many ways that educators can incorporate this concept into their strategy courses. In this session we will explore a variety of pedagogies useful in teaching real options. In this session we will explore cases that are well suited to teaching this topic and real options exercises that may work well in classroom settings. A key objective will be to provide "takeaways" that instructors can immediately employ in teaching this important topic.
