Global B-schools come calling for case studies | Business and Management Resources | Scoop.it
After executive education, case study generation draws international management schools to India
Bonnie Buchanan's insight:

The case studies required in my Principles of Business course, as well as others within the Business Management Technology progam, are a great preparation for those who plan to continue on with their education after their associate degrees.  Case studies are not likely to go away and will only become more thoroughly researched and cover longer periods of time than the 'mini' case studies which my students will soon be turning in.

Here's to a great semester of wonderful case studies.
