The University of Auckland Business Case Centre produces case studies that document milestones and trends in leadership and management in New Zealand and sometimes overseas businesses and organisations. These cases are typically 5 – 15 page documents that provide a factual description of an important decision or situation an organisation has faced, along with details about the options regarding a specific managerial dilemma. The case studies are written and prepared by Business School staff and researchers which are based on interviews and information provided by the featured company, organisation or individual.
The University of Auckland Business Case Centre offers an inspection copy and some cases are accompanied by a set of teaching notes. Cases are easy to order.
