Description

CEEMAN Case Writing Competition

The aim of the CEEMAN & Emerald Case Writing Competition is to encourage and promote the development of high-quality teaching case material relevant for the realities of dynamic and emerging economies, and at the same time to promote the development of case-writing capabilities in those countries. Since its launch in the 1990s, the Case Writing Competition has amassed close to 600 cases from 80 countries, and it is with pleasure that we observe what an impact they have had on management education that strives to be relevant to its environments and stakeholders.
