In varying lengths and difficulties depending on the course, case studies allow for students to practice their decision-making and problem-solving skills with their written case analysis or participation in class discussion. Outside of the case studies available within each product, a variety of cases are also available at our Create site, that allows you to include cases from Harvard, Darden, Ivey and many more sources.
