The Case Centre Awards 2019

Sun determined to write more cases after award


L-R: Ian Hodgkinson, Vicky Lester, Sun Hye Lee and Stewart Robinson

Alt textLoughborough University’s Sun Hye Lee was the third winner in as many days to be presented with their 2019 Case Awards trophy.

After the POMS and Entrepreneurship presentations at Columbia Business School and Stanford Graduate School of Business earlier in the week (w/c 22 April), it was the turn of Sun in Leicestershire in the UK.

Sun won the Strategy and General Management category for her Ivey Publishing case, Apple and Its Supplies: Corporate Social Responsibility, along with co-authors Kamel Mellahi (Warwick Business School) and Michael J Mol (Copenhagen Business School).

Alt textSun said: “Winning this award is a great honour and the biggest possible encouragement to undertake more of this work. It was the first ever teaching case any of us had written, and it is an interesting form of creating new knowledge alongside research articles and other means.”

Sun’s winning case focuses on labour rights violations occurring with Apple’s Chinese suppliers, and how the tech giant should deal with the issue.

Sun, a Lecturer in International Business, was presented with the Strategy trophy by The Case Centre Deputy Director, Vicky Lester. They were joined by Stewart Robinson, Dean, School of Business and Economics, Ian Hodgkinson, Head of International Business, Strategy and Innovation, and faculty.
