Harvard Business School Case Studies
The case method forms the basis of learning at Harvard Business School. It is a method designed to provide an "immersion" experience, challenging students by bringing them as close as possible to the business situations of the real world. Harvard Business School Publishing makes these cases and related materials available to improve and enhance business education around the world. They are available to purchase online for around $7.00.

CasePlace.Org
CasePlace.org is a library of teaching resources designed for business school faculty—although other faculty, and student and professional users are welcome too! The site is intended primarily to help faculty incorporate environmental, social and ethical topics into their teaching on business and management.

CasePlace provides an array of teaching materials from a variety of publishers, all of which have been pre-screened for quality and focus on mainstream business issues and incorporate ethical, social, environmental, values-based and governance issues as well. We provide access to the most recent business cases, as well as articles from the scholarly and popular press, issue reports and multimedia content. Aspen CBE also produces original materials for the site, including essays, opinion papers, web conferences, and teaching modules that are designed to help faculty think through the questions that arise at the intersection of business and society, and plan their teaching on these issues.

CasePlace.org is run by the Aspen Institute's Center for Business Education (Aspen CBE), which is dedicated to helping business schools prepare their students to be responsible stewards of the environment and society through their business careers.
