Today at Livemint, I read an interesting article. The journalist tried to teach some of the Management lessons by analyzing the movie IronMan2.
I remember at IIM-L, one of the faculty members used to regularly use scenes from Mahabharata (an epic hindu book) to teach us certain aspects of Management, esp negotiation, soft skills and HR training. Another professor screened “12 Angry Men” during an exam. I guess these examples help a lot in reinforcing the faculty’s point of view and explain the students the real life application of the issue being discussed. I wonder how many other schools and colleges also take a similar approach.
