In 2020 we celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Awards and Competitions. In this special feature we reflect on the history, winning authors, successful schools and most featured companies and industries, and look towards the future.

Awards

Our awards have been presented since 1991. We recognise those cases that have been used in the largest number of organisations across the globe in the past year in nine management categories and a free case category. The Overall Winner Award is also presented to the most popular case across all categories.

Awards are assessed anonymously, based on usage data. Cases that have been added to our collection in the past five years are eligible.

Competitions

Take part in our competitions and compete with the best case teachers and writers in the world. Expert panels judge the case writing competition entries anonymously to ensure complete impartiality.
