Welcome to The Case Centre's 40th anniversary celebrations

2013 champagne cork

We’re celebrating 40 successful years as the world’s only not-for-profit organisation dedicated to supporting and promoting the case method in business education.

Since our modest beginnings in 1973, when we began life as the Case Clearing House of Great Britain and Ireland, we have developed into an influential, world-leading organisation firmly established at the heart of the international case method community.

Educational importance

Our commitment to supporting the case method, and our belief in its outstanding educational importance, is reflected in the wide range of services we now provide to educators, trainers and students across the globe. These include case publication and distribution, case method training and scholarships, and hotly contested competitions and awards for case writing and teaching.

We’re proud to be associated with all the world’s leading business schools who entrust us with their case collections and continue to value and support our work.

Exclusive interviews with deans

To help mark our 40th anniversary, we asked business school leaders worldwide for their perspective on the case method. What are the challenges ahead? Does the case method need to change and adapt? And what does the future hold? You can also have your say, so let us know what you think!

Our top 40 bestselling cases

We’ve compiled a list of our top 40 bestselling cases as part of our continuing celebrations to mark our 40th anniversary. The figures are based on sales since The Case Centre was first set up in 1973. Find out which cases are our overall bestsellers!
