What is the purpose of the use of the case method in the classroom?

Scenario based experiential learning like the case method allows for 10 key advantages which help students learn:

models the real world better than an essay might (ie more practical)
avoids banking model of education (ie the cycle of dumping info into students mind & memorization)
direct practice of the managerial point of view
quick feedback which is key to learning
vastly increases audience participation and engagement
learning how to present your ideas in a persuasive, succinct way
learn different perspectives or ways of making decisions
implicitly involves a more direct modeling role than multiple choice testing
development of instinct and speed of making quality decisions
collaborative in nature and in some ways mirrors the boardroom
