Business Case Studies

Case studies in articles from library databases are available for all Webster users. Faculty may find other tabs helpful in finding teaching cases.

Periodical case articles as teaching/learning tools

Most case articles will provide both the case facts and an analysis of the solution chosen by the organization.  They generally will not include teaching notes or discussion questions.  To help students tie the article to course theory or content, you can create your own discussion prompts. For example: Ask students to generate alternative case solutions or discussion questions. Or, you may offer alternative solutions and have student teams debate their effectiveness. 

Among other articles, the Harvard Business Review (HBR) magazine provides short issue-driven cases with a question to which multiple experts offer alternative responses.  Here's a link to articles coded as case studies in HBR. To focus the search add additional topical keywords or phrases to the search boxes. 

For more suggestions on finding articles, see the Article Case Studies tab on this guide.
