About the GSB case collection

The Case Writing Centre produces and publishes teaching case studies that reflect African and the emerging market context for the University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business.

In collaboration with the Harvard Business School Alumni Africa, the Case Writing Centre’s purpose is to bring the relevance and strength of local business lessons to life. We profile leading businesses and explore actual, complex situations and how best to solve them. Our cases also boast informative and in-depth teaching notes. Our areas of interest include business strategy, leadership, marketing, operations, organisational change, and social innovation.

The GSB has over the past 50 years charted its own distinctly African path. Year after year our school is recognised by our global peers at the Eduniversal World Convention and in the QS Global 200 survey as the top business school in Africa. The GSB is one of only three business schools in Africa to have the prestigious triple-crown accreditation (AACSB, AMBA & EQUIS).

Our school is also a member of and accredited by AABS, a unique African accreditation which promotes excellence in management education in Africa through collaboration, capacity-building and quality improvement.

Our teaching, learning and research are directed towards building a more economically prosperous, more equitable, and more integrated continent.

Our faculty is inspired to transform innovative ideas into relevant solutions for emerging market problems, and to generate quality teaching materials to help others to do the same. The School is constantly investing in quality scholarship and strong partnerships to support these aims. Through initiatives like the Bertha Centre for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship, and the Allan Gray Centre for Values-based Leadership, we seek to build a new kind of business school: one that is rooted in values and enables positive, new ways of thinking and acting in business to achieve sustainable success.

We offer a range of study options, from our academic programmes, including the MBA and the Executive MBA, to Executive Education short courses, as well as masters and doctoral studies.

Our campus is located in the heart of the City of Cape Town – one of Africa’s most vibrant and culturally diverse cities.
