2016 Competition Highlights

The response to this year’s ISB-Ivey Global Case Competition was overwhelming with intents to participate coming in from across the globe.  Besides most major business schools in India, participants from institutions in Malaysia, Botswana, the United Arab Emirates, Canada, the Netherlands, and the United States also evinced interest in the competition.

The competition received 95 final case submissions that were accompanied with detailed teaching notes. These cases document business stories of organisations, that range from early start-ups to large multinationals, and highlight a wide gamut of business issues, be it from mainstream disciplines such as Strategy, Marketing and Finance, to growing areas of interest such as, Social Enterprise and Corporate Governance. 

Commenting on the 2016 competition, Professor Arun Pereira, Executive Director, Centre for Learning and Management Practice, ISB, observed:

"The ISB-Ivey Global Case Competition continues to grow from strength to strength.  It is heartening to see the increasing reach of the competition; this year we had faculty from Europe and the Middle-East submitting India-based cases.  Further, thanks to competitions like this, business schools across the world have access to an increasing selection of India cases that reflect the rich and varied landscape of the Indian economy."

Professor David Sharp, Associate Professor, Ivey Business School and co-ordinator of the Ivey faculty judging panel, said: 

“Once again, we were delighted to see a record number of submissions. It is very gratifying to see Indian faculty embracing the case teaching/learning method so enthusiastically, and contributing high quality teaching resources about Indian business that will be used in top business schools around the world.”
