Case Writing Centre Overview


 

THE CASE WRITING CENTRE

The Case Writing Centre at GSB produces and publishes teaching case studies that
reflect the emerging market. We want to propel participant-centred learning and create the material to support it.

WHAT IS A CASE STUDY?

A case study is a learning tool that uses an account of a real-life business situation in the classroom. Learning occurs through a joint effort to solve the dilemma faced by the character in the story.
