Business Case Studies page

There is a lot of variation in the definition of a case study. Case studies usually present the pertinent facts about a business or management "problem". They may analyze the process the company took to solve the issue, or they may pose questions to stimulate critical thinking.  

Commercial publishers, like the well-known Harvard Business School, produce cases for classroom use. These often  provide faculty with teaching notes and other resources to support instruction.   Generally, the only way to get copies of a commercial case is to purchase it from the publisher.  It is not possible for the Library to get copies of commercial cases on interlibrary loan (ILL).

Case studies found in business texts and tradtional books, journals and magazines, (like Harvard Business Review) and even freely available on the Web, may not provide the same structured learning goals as commercial cases. However, they may be valuable for engaging student discussion and problem solving.

Click on the tabs above to explore library article databases and books and websites for finding and using business case studies.
