Since 1973, The Case Centre has been teaching and sharing case materials. What exactly is a case study? The case method was pioneered at Harvard University and recounts real life business situations with a dilemma or uncertain outcome. Detailed information about the situation, along with discussion and analysis leads students to deeper understanding of management issues and their resolutions. Every year since 1991, The Case Centre has hosted a competition and given out awards for the most popular and impressive case studies.
