About MIT Sloan School of Management
MIT Sloan is a different kind of management school. It’s not iterating on a better widget or cashing in on the latest business fad. It’s not talking about management in the abstract.
As part of the world’s leading research institution, MIT Sloan brings together today’s brightest minds to tackle global challenges. For real.
At the intersection of business and technology, MIT Sloan explores the future of work. It launches companies that kick start local economies in the developing world. It retools systems to make health care work better and to engage people around the world in addressing climate change.
For students, this means different kinds of opportunities. Hands-on learning. Global experience. And a relentless focus on impact.
For faculty, this means different fields of research. New work in emerging areas that don’t fit into existing departments. And colleagues across MIT.
For alumni, this means a vibrant global network of like-minded innovators, ready to help you advance your career and turn your vision into reality.
For organisational leaders the world over, this means a wellspring of ideas and talent. Brilliant minds. Practical problem-solvers. Meaningful research. And tools you can apply to your own work.
MIT Sloan. Ideas made to matter.
About the collection
Case studies are narratives that facilitate class discussion about a particular business or management issue. Teaching cases are meant to spur debate among students rather than promote a particular point of view or steer students in a specific direction.
Some of the case studies in this collection highlight the decision-making process in a business or management setting. Other cases are descriptive or demonstrative in nature, showcasing something that has happened or is happening in a particular business or management environment.
Whether decision-based or demonstrative, case studies give students the chance to be in the shoes of a protagonist. With the help of context and detailed data, students can analyse what they would and would not do in a particular situation, why, and how.
Since 2009, the MIT Sloan School of Management has provided open and free access to its case study collection. Every case carries a creative commons license allowing it to be downloaded, copied, and distributed/used free of charge by anyone worldwide, no permission required. While this collection covers a wide array of industries, companies, and organisations, it focuses mainly on areas in which MIT Sloan’s innovative research and teaching are world renowned.
