The Richmond MBA, Opening Residency

The Richmond MBA, Opening Residency

The Opening Residency is a case-based introductory experience for students enrolled in the Richmond MBA. Satisfactory completion of the Residency is a prerequisite for enrollment in any MBA class. During the Residency, students are provided with basic knowledge of the various business disciplines that constitute the MBA curriculum. Students work in teams to analyze a "live" case, based on a real firm with a pending business issue. Because the case deals with an as-yet-unresolved business issue, the students must grapple with applying their new knowledge and skills in a complex, ambiguous situation where the problem is not clearly specified, a definitive "right" answer is not known, and complete information is not available. The Residency takes place over two weekends in August. During the time period between the two weekends of the Residency, student teams conduct outside research on the case issue, analyze the case situation, and begin their case analysis. The Residency concludes with the case competition judged by representatives of the case company and the faculty. (Fall 2013)
