About the collection
The El Khazindar Business Research and Case Center collection of business cases covers a number of different sectors in the Middle East and North Africa region. By presenting the audience with a wide view of strategic, managerial, and ethical cases, this collection aims to set the business scene for all entrepreneurs and established business owners, building a foundation upon which the region’s future may be built. The cases presented tackle different business areas including marketing, strategy, management, finance and many others.
For years, the region has had to resort to international examples set in the West when comparing businesses and receiving inspiration for new business models. In order to provide a more relatable resource, this case collection serves to fill this pressing gap, providing the region’s innovators with appropriate case studies from whose inspiration they may be able to lead a prominent rising MENA region generation.
