The Case Centre Connect Issue 35, Autumn 2018

Dear colleague

Welcome to the Autumn issue of Connect!

Our featured cases start with an incident in New Jersey, US, where a police officer is forced to shoot down a suspect, and he struggles with the aftermath.

Next, we look at a multimedia case, and how IKEA Ibérica in Spain regained market leadership.

As part of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s plans to make the country slum-free by 2022, our next case explores Ahmedabad's efforts.

Comparison giant trivago is the focus of our final featured case. After becoming the largest IPO of a German company in Nasdaq history, how do they stay true to their entrepreneurial ethos?

Chair of the Global Business School Network, Soumitra Dutta, takes his place in the ‘5 minutes with…’ hot seat, discussing the role the case method plays in management studies, plus much more.

Elsewhere, we examine the success of the AACSB Global Improvement Network's pilot program at the University of Ghana Business School, and bring you part two of our ‘Preparing to teach with cases’ feature.

Best wishes

2018 Entrepreneurship award winner Tao Yue, Managing Editor and a Senior Case Writer at Rotterdam School of Management’s Case Development Centre, discusses case writing challenges and how to adapt to working with different faculty and subjects. Watch here.

“It took me a while to learn that students, from undergrads to senior executives, remember a good case discussion a lot longer than even a brilliant lecture. Case discussions must be touching something deeper in them.” – Kasra Ferdows, McDonough School of Business, Georgetown University. Discover more.

“Students learn best from the case method when the instructor harnesses tension. Every time a student answers a question (e.g. 'Who is at fault?' or 'Would you exit the business?') all classmates must ask themselves, 'Do I agree?'” – Thomas R Eisenmann, Harvard Business School. Read more.

Over the last 12 months, The Case Centre has welcomed schools from North America, Europe, Asia and Africa to the case collection. With hundreds of new cases added each month, why not try something new! Discover more.
