The Centre for Teaching, Learning, and Case Development at the Indian School of Business and Ivey Business School at the Western University, Canada announce the results of the ISB-Ivey Global Case Competition 2015.  

The Competition is supported by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), Ivey Publishing (IP), the publishing arm of Ivey Business School,  and the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD). 

2015 Competition Highlights

This year, the ISB-Ivey Global Case Competition received 86 entries from more than 50 B-schools in India, the United States, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Arab Emirates. The cases spanned a wide spectrum of management areas, from more traditional subjects such as Strategy, Marketing, Finance and Leadership, to growing areas of interest such as, Social Enterprise and Business Ethics.

The competition plays a critical role in promoting the development of new case material and the use of the case method in management education. Commenting on the 2015 competition, Professor Arun Pereira, Executive Director, Centre for Teaching, Learning, and Case Development, ISB, observed, The ISB-Ivey Global Case Competition continues to scale new heights of quality and impact. We see more and more high quality cases written that have the potential to make classroom learning very compelling and impactful. The cases received reflect India’s varied economic landscape, from family businesses to multinationals and from social ventures to e-commerce entrepreneurs. This annual competition ensures an ever increasing supply of current, high-quality India cases for the global MBA classroom.

Over the years, the competition has also been instrumental in building and refining case writing capability among B-school faculty submitting cases to the competition. Professor David Sharp, Faculty Director, India and Associate Professor, Ivey Business School remarked, This year, again, we saw a record number of high quality case submissions. It is encouraging to see so many new case writers participating in our competition, but also to see the improvement in quality from participants from previous years – several of this year’s top cases were from faculty who had taken part in previous years without success. It just goes to show – if at first you don’t succeed…!!!
