The case method remains an irreplaceable cornerstone of management education in business schools across the globe, but why do case teachers and writers often not feel recognised?
We believe that in choosing to use the case method, educators are making a huge impact on the learning of their students.
Within the context of real-life decision-making, students take on board new ideas and concepts, learning business and management theory while at the same time developing a wide range of vital professional and life skills, including negotiation, analysis, defending and challenging viewpoints, team and lone working, and the ability to guard against making decisions based on too little information.
However, case teachers and writers often feel that their work is undervalued.
We have developed a range of initiatives to ensure that recognition for their work is available to the case community.

Updating the FT evaluations for business schools
Under the leadership of Andrew Jack, the Financial Times’s Global Education Editor, the FT is seeking to better integrate the societal impact of business schools, including research, into its evaluations. The aim is to explore better ways to quantify the societal impact of business school academic output to encourage better practice. You can read more about the initiative on this EFMD blog.
So, how can cases contribute? We've already been in discussions with the FT on this topic but would love to hear your ideas. Please do get in touch with our Director, Richard McCracken, if you'd like to discuss it further. Richard can be reached at email@example.com or on +44 (0)1234 756400.
