A wonderful opportunity for African faculty members to get access to high-quality teaching cases at no cost to them or their schools has opened earlier this month.
Through an agreement with the Wits Business School Case Centre (WBS), the Association of African Business Schools (AABS) will pay for 500 copies of WBS case studies to be used for educational use by faculty members of AABS member schools. This offer is open to all AABS members who have not yet bought cases from WBS this year.
The agreement went into effect September 1, 2015, and will last until 500 copies have been purchased.
WBS has a collection of close to 200 high-quality cases covering the full range of management disciplines. The cases are set in companies as diverse as small entrepreneurial ventures, listed corporations, and public sector organizations.
Faculty members of qualifying AABS member schools will be able to view inspection copies of the cases in the WBS collection and order cases they would like to use in their courses after specifying the number of students who will use each case. WBS will bill AABS for the cases.
To take advantage of this agreement, faculty members can access the WBS Case Centre website here, search through the WBS case collection by category, and then order cases directly from WBS by clicking on the links provided.
GBSN was part of the inception of AABS.
