The Case Centre Connect Issue 23

Dear colleague

Welcome to the autumn issue of Connect!

Can a 940-year-old Benedictine monastery have any relevant lessons for businesses today? And how can a 500-year-old postal service company be accurately valued for sale? Find out in our featured cases. We also explore the world of superheroes and Marvel Comics and meet the entrepreneurs who aim to help ‘little guy’ companies by connecting them with customers.

We interview Matt Quin, Director of Ivey Publishing, who reveals why his daughter is such an inspiration and why he believes the case method is so important. Plus – discover why IE Business School is such an exciting place to be as it continues to develop its pioneering approach to creating multimedia teaching materials. And can cases help with accreditation? AACSB’s Tim Mescon says yes.

Best wishes
