Edward School of Business students ready to take part in their "real time-case study"
Students from the Edwards School of Business at the University of Saskatchewan are getting a hands-on lesson in problem solving. What their professor calls a "real time-case study," upper year students from the school were at the Saskatoon Food Bank and Learning Centre this morning. It's part of the leadership course in human relations and organizational behaviour. The students have a chance to go into the community and experience a large business or operation at work...from within. Their assignment is to watch what's happening at the food bank and then come up with ideas for improvements.

Kelly Jackson/4th Year Student: "It is a real life view of the situation. It gets us out of just reading text books and that sort of thing to real life situations and how it's going to be when we're done school."
Professor Chelsea Willness: " Our hope is that they'll learn about some issues and challenges the organization faces and be able to apply what they know from their training in the classroom and deliver a report, some recommendations and have that two-way communication to try and build those bridges in the community."
