Critical Thinking Case Studies: Money Masters of Our Time


Case studies are a crucial part of business education, and an exceptional way to enhance Business English and critical thinking skills. By telling a detailed story most often focused on leadership and customer experiences, they elaborate upon the pathway to business success. Throughout the program, students will read, evaluate, and understand diverse case studies from Money Masters of Our Time by John Train.


In Money Masters of Our Time, Train emphasizes the aspects of successful business professionals’ careers that illuminate their investment techniques, focusing on notable individuals whose decisions to buy and sell have repeatedly made money grow. Throughout the program, we will focus on their investment techniques and methods, while giving brief biographical evaluations. During each discussion, we will ask several questions, including:


  • How do they reason?
  • Where do they get their information?
  • How much do they depend on fact and how much on psychology?
  • What are their criteria in selecting an investment?
  • What investments did they make, and why?


Some of the “Money Masters” covered by Train and discussed during the program include: Warren Buffet, Paul Cabot, Philip Carret, Philip Fisher, Benjamin Graham, Mark Lightbrown, Peter Lynch, John Neff, T. Rowe Price, Richard Rainwater, Julian Robertson, Jim Rogers, George Soros, Michael Steinhardt, John Templeton, Ralph Wanger, and Robert Wilson.
