Resources for business case studies and how to analyze them.

Where Do I Find Harvard Business School Case Studies?

Harvard Business Publishing does not sell HBS case studies directly to libraries. Due to these restrictions, libraries cannot purchase HBS case studies or put them on reserve.

Students may purchase case studies at the Harvard Business Publishing site for a small fee.  Instructors may apply for Educator's Access. Harvard Business Publishing also offers case studies from other sources.

The Harvard Business Review, available through the Business Source Complete database, publishes one case study per issue. HBR's cases are about fictional companies, present common managerial dilemmas and offer concrete solutions from experts.
