Case writing competitions

We partner with various organisations around the world to offer a range of case writing competitions. Find out how you can apply and details of our previous winners. 

Our competition winners receive international recognition and a cash prize, and cases may be considered for international publication.

Our aim is to foster the development of cases from real-life situations that can be used as teaching tools within management and business education. Beyond capacity building, the competitions create awareness of the specific organisational challenges within key global markets.

To date, our longest-running case writing competition with the Central and East European Management Development Association (CEEMAN) has gathered around 600 cases from 80 countries.
