Free Chilean entrepreneurship cases from Babson College

Building on its entrepreneurial legacy to advance entrepreneurial thought and action for the world, Babson College partnered with Banco de Chile to immerse twenty faculty members from ten Chilean universities into the rigorous art of entrepreneurship case writing and teaching.

The intensive program, which took place from June 2009 to January 2010, has culminated with the publication of the first Chilean entrepreneurship teaching case collection. Heidi M. Neck, Faculty Director and Jeffry A. Timmons Professor of Entrepreneurial Studies, led the program. Babson professors Dennis Ceru, Brad George, Mary Gentile, and Andrew Zacharakis worked with each Chilean case team.

The program was graciously funded by Banco de Chile; therefore, all cases in the Chilean collection are free to use for educational purposes.

Faculty from the following Chilean institutions participated:

  • Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile
  • Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso
  • Universidad Adolfo Ibañez
  • Universidad de los Andes
  • Universidad Católica del Norte
  • Universidad del Desarrollo
  • Universidad Diego Portales
  • Universidad de Santiago de Chile
  • Universidad de Talca
  • Universidad de Tarapacá

About Babson cases

Babson College
Babson faculty members infuse their intellectual capital into their academic programs with teaching cases. These cases promote their teaching method of combining entrepreneurship theory and practice. Most of the cases include teaching notes and more than one-half include a video of the entrepreneur visiting a Babson class while the case is being discussed.
