Ask any student at the Singapore Management University (SMU) toname one of the most practical and useful courses offered by theuniversity. The answer would inevitably include CAT. CAT stands forthe "Computer as an Analysis Tool" course. Originally based on acourse of the same title offered by the Wharton Business School, thefocus of CAT was shifted to provide business students the essentialpractical skills and necessary “real-world” exposure to better usepersonal computers for resolving business problems.
