Speaking on the occasion, Carol Stephenson said, Providing business case studies with a global perspective, Ivey publications will now develop India-based case materials for business education to be taught in India as well as abroad. The partnership will not only give Indian students exposure to Iveys real-world, field-based cases, involving actual interviews with businesses from around the world, but even benefit foreign students who garner knowledge about Indian cases.

The objectives of the collaboration are:
1. to leverage Iveys rich knowledge base and accumulated intellectual capital in business case study research to further the use of case studies as a pedagogical approach at MDI; and

2. to support MDIs emphasis on case based teaching and writing to enhance its reputation as a leader in management education in India

This collaboration has 2 components: (1) CASE WRITING AND TEACHING TRAINING, and (2) CASE PUBLISHING.


Both Ivey and MDI will share their knowledge base, expertise and accumulated intellectual capital, recognizing the broad spectrum of skills and business experience that students need to tackle challenges in todays complex business world.
