2018 EFMD Case Writing Competition Winners

EFMD is thrilled to announce the winners of the 2018 edition of Case Writing Competition.

This year was marked by outstanding teaching cases in all seventeen management-related categories. Among the winners is a bestselling case author in the academic year 2017/2018 or a winner of the Outstanding Case Teacher award – both recognised by The Case Centre, and many more acknowledged authors. Within the wide range of categories’ focus, those cases, which were done in cooperation with companies, provide deep insights into the companies’ internal practices.

All cases are up-to-date, reflecting social and economic changes from all across the globe yet provide a deep learning and inspiring experience for students.

Congratulations to all winners!
