Egg drop exercise shows students value of resources

College courses are not what they once were. They are not solely driven by lectures or presenting concepts. They are driven by engagement. They are driven by experiment, by doing. And the faculty at the West Virginia University College of Business and Economics are at the forefront of this revolution, providing WVU business students with an innovative education and learning experiences they can apply in their careers.

Take, for example, Assistant Professor of Management Dr. Olga Bruyaka. Throughout the Fall 2017 semester, if you were to peek into her senior level Contemporary Business Strategy class, you would not have often seen students sitting at desks taking notes, looking at their smart phones or staring at the clock. In fact, you would have witnessed students participating in live auctions and negotiations, building prototypes and then testing those prototypes through an egg drop exercise.
