About Rotterdam School of Management 

Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) is one of Europe’s top-ranked business schools. RSM provides ground-breaking research and education, furthering excellence in all aspects of management and is based in the international port city of Rotterdam – a vital nexus of business, logistics and trade. RSM’s primary focus is on developing business leaders with international careers who can become a force for positive change by carrying their innovative mindset into a sustainable future. RSM’s first-class range of bachelor, master, MBA, PhD and executive programmes encourage them to become critical, creative, caring and collaborative thinkers and doers.

About the collection

Business students, and even seasoned business experts, can learn from the experiences of other real-life organisations and decision-makers. Engagement with practice is a core element of RSM’s approach to research and teaching. The Case Development Centre (CDC) at RSM supports case-based management education by turning exceptional business and management experiences into powerful learning tools. CDC works closely with RSM faculty to develop high-quality case studies and disseminate them among educators all over the world. 

The RSM CDC case collection comprises hundreds of cases and teaching notes on a wide range of topics and industries, including a number of international bestsellers and award winners. CDC works closely with RSM faculty to develop and write cases used in undergraduate, graduate, MBA, and executive courses. Some of the cases also have multimedia supporting materials. 

About the free collection

The Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) provides a growing set of teaching cases in its free case collection. At the moment it provides three free case collections.

The first group – QuInnE cases – derive from the research results of QuInnE, an interdisciplinary EU-funded project investigating the interdependence of job quality and innovation and its effect on job creation.

The second group – ENABLE cases – derive from the European Network for the Advancement of Business and Landscape Education (ENABLE) project, which develops much-needed education on integrated landscape management using sustainable business models.

The third group – Sustainable Development Goals cases – derive from RSM’s initiative to embed SDGs in its curriculum. These cases explore the complexity of sustainable development, requiring students to go beyond their own specialisations ¬in order to understand the environmental, social, and economic dimensions of sustainability.
