The primary purpose of this research is to analyze various expectations of companies and teachers about a PBL course for students majoring in Information Science which intends to solve actual problems provided by the companies. We conducted the M-GTA analysis on our PBL course after preliminary interviews. We identified a hypothetical mechanism that explains what are the expectations, how the expectations formed, and which factors have influences on the expectations. This hypothetical mechanism would have a balancing structure operated by companies and teachers. Companies and teachers would recognize their benefit of the PBL course by understanding the hypothetical mechanism.
