About Stanford cases

Stanford University campus

Stanford GSB faculty work with case writing and research center staff to create a diverse case collection, with many focused on global issues.

The collection covers a wide range of topics including Entrepreneurship, Strategic Management, Social Innovation, Global Supply Chain, and International Business. In the classroom, these cases provide contextual background, connect theory with application, and develop insight.
