The Case Centre Awards and Competitions 2018

We’re delighted to announce the winners of our global awards and competitions – the case method community’s annual ‘Oscars’.

David A Garvin of Harvard Business School, is this year’s (posthumous) recipient of the Outstanding Contribution to the Case Method Award. A renowned case teacher and author, and a visionary case method scholar, David’s impact on the case method is undoubted, and he will be sorely missed.

INSEAD's Pierre Chandon, a previous winner of four overall awards, two marketing category prizes, and the 2016 Outstanding Contribution to the Case Method Award, completes the set by winning this year's Outstanding Case Teacher competition.

In addition, our Case Awards celebrate popular cases that have been used in the most organisations across the world in the past year. Meet our competition winners too.
