HBR Case Study Method

Faculty often assign Harvard Business School Case Studies in classroom assignments. The Harvard Business School has instituted a policy by which any faculty member or student who needs to use an HBS Case Study, can only do so one of two ways.

1) The Professor can purchase a license to use the Case Study in class. This can be done throught this link: Harvard Business Publishing for Educators Educators Website Help.

2) The student can purchase the article/case study from HBSP for a one-time use. This can be done through the same link (after registering):HBSP Online Bookstore for Students
