Case Studies from the New York Times
These case studies offer readers the opportunity to think along with a small-business owner who has confronted an interesting challenge. In each article, you can watch the owner assess his or her options and then make a decision -- and then you can click on the related blog post to see how other owners analyze the situation. You can also join the discussion and leave your own comments.
MIT Sloan School of Management/Learning Edge Case Studies
Some of the case studies featured highlight the decision-making process in a business or management setting. Other cases are descriptive or demonstrative in nature, showcasing something that has happened or is happening in a particular business or management environment. Whether decision based or demonstrative, teaching cases give students the chance to be in the shoes of a protagonist. With the help of context and detailed data, students can analyze what they would and would not do in a particular situation, why, and how.
