Case studies

Message reading "problem, analysis, solution"

Case studies are usually written by academic institutions or professional bodies. Since they allow students to learn about real world organizational and social issues, and about how such issues can be addressed, they are often used in business and social sciences classes. As a student, you may be asked to find and critically analyze or interpret case studies, developing in this way your critical thinking and problem solving abilities. You can find case studies in books, journals, professional magazines, databases, or company websites.
