Where can I find free case studies?
Harvard Business Review has a bunch of case studies, but they're pretty expensive ~ $10 per case. Do you guys know if there's any place I can find free case studies?
Maybe one of you should create a Netflix for case studies? I'd find it super helpful.

HBS Content Copyright Policy
Policy Here , and regarding class use of cases and HBR articles:
... we prohibit the posting of cases, articles, or chapters on “e-reserve” course pages for student access, as well as in “electronic coursepacks” that link to our digitized content and content postings on course management systems such as WebCT or Blackboard. Such unauthorized postings are equivalent to distributing our copyrighted content to students without permission, which infringes that copyright. This is so even if the content is being used for the first time and is password-protected, accessible only to students in the course, and taken down at the end of the course.
Cases & Case Studies
The definition of "Case Study" varies from publication to publication. The "case studies" in traditional journals and books are not necessarily the same as commercial "cases" from publishers like Harvard Business School Publishing.
The Library does NOT collect commercial cases due to licensing restrictions imposed by the publishers. Each student must pay for their own copies. To find and use these commercial cases, go to Harvard Business Publishing. By registering for a free educator account , you can create an online coursepack to provide online access to specific cases (with "up to 60% off" for students).
- Harvard Business Publishing - Cases Includes cases from multiple institutions like Harvard, Darden, Stanford, Ivey, and more.
- The Case Centre Another clearinghouse of cases. Many cases are available on both Harvard Business Publishing and Case Centre.
You can also search for freely available case studies in the resources mentioned below.

Harvard Business Review
HBR articles in Business Source Premier (BSP, an EBSCOhost database) cannot be used for teaching purposes.
Harvard Business Review Notice of Use Restrictions, May 2009:
Harvard Business Review and Harvard Business Publishing Newsletter content on EBSCOhost is licensed for the private individual use of authorized EBSCOhost users. It is not intended for use as assigned course material in academic institutions nor as corporate learning or training materials in businesses. Academic licensees may not use this content in electronic reserves, electronic course packs, persistent linking from syllabi or by any other means of incorporating the content into course resources. Business licensees may not host this content on learning management systems or use persistent linking or other means to incorporate the content into learning management systems. Harvard Business Publishing will be pleased to grant permission to make this content available through such means. For rates and permission, contact [email protected]
That means an instructor should NOT do the following with HBR articles in BSP: 1) uploading PDFs, or 2) providing links in syllabus or Canvas, or 3) verbally assigning specific HBR articles during class. The instructor needs to set up a free educator's account and create the course pack, then share the course pack link with students.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Why can't instructors use HBR articles since they are available in Business Source Premier? -- It's HBP's policy. The articles in Business Source Premier are for "research" only; articles used for "teaching purposes" are not covered by the license and not free to the students.
Can students use Business Source Premier on their own and cite HBR articles in their papers or coursework? -- Yes, if they are doing research and find these articles serendipitously.
Can I just tell students to find these articles without linking to them? -- No, if the students are told to find them for a class, the articles are used for "teaching." HBP does track the usage of HBR and a sudden increase in the search and download of a specific article will be flagged as violation.
What are my options if I want to link to articles for a class so students can read them for free? -- The hbr.org website has many articles in full text and it is okay to link to them for a class. However, guest users and registered users can only view a limited number of free articles per month.
-- If the HBR article is also in one of the HBR's 10 Must Reads ebooks , you can link to the ebook. To find out if an article is in the ebooks, just do a search by the article title in the library catalog.
-- Articles from most other journals PSU Library subscribes to can be used as course materials, whether you put them on Course Reserves , link to them in your course page , or verbally assign them as required reading. The Library is already paying for these resources so your students can read them without any additional cost.
Who can provide more information regarding the course pack? -- I recommend contacting HBP directly .
What else do I need to know about HBR articles in BSP?
-- Starting 8/1/2013, Harvard Business Publishing has restricted access to HBR's 500 most popular articles (initial list -- titles change over time) to "read-only" in BSP. These articles cannot be printed or linked to from a persistent link. You can still search for them in BSP, download the PDF, or email the PDF to yourself.
-- How do I know it's one of those articles?
- In the BSP article record you will see this message: The publisher offers limited access to this article. The full text cannot be printed or saved. Solution: There is nothing you can do. Just read it online.
- If you see this message in BSP through an external link (e.g., from searching the library catalog): " The publisher offers limited access to this article. The full text cannot be viewed from a persistent link. " Solution: do a new search directly in BSP and you will find the full text.

Finding Case Studies - Including HBR materials
Accessing the Harvard Business Review
- Here is our catalog record for Harvard Business Review that shows our current holdings, both physical and electronic. Magazines/journals are shelved alphabetically by title on the third floor south. Contact a librarian for assistance .
Harvard Business Review Restrictions
In 2009, Harvard Business School Publishing (HBSP) finalized a license agreement with EBSCO—the vendor of Business Source Complete, which contains the HBR in full text. This license agreement specifies that: “ academic licensees may not use this content in electronic reserves, electronic course packs, persistent linking from syllabi or by any other means of incorporating the content into course resources. ” Below are some options that instructors may consider.
- Work directly with Harvard Business Publishing for Educators to secure appropriate course content.
- These specific restrictions affect only HBR online content within EBSCO. Polk Library has physical copies of HBR in our collection. You can email and request a online learning librarian scan and send you a copy for use in your course. Polk has issues of HBR from 1953-2011.
- Refer to open source resources, such as through the link below to open-source case studies.
HBR articles that won’t allow linking, printing, or saving
In 2013, Harvard Business School Publishing (HBSP) further restricted access to its 500 most heavily used items (making them read-only). So, if you found a certain article or short case study in an issue of the HBR that was restricted in the database you can email an online learning librarian and we can see if it is in our physical collection in the library to scan and send to you. We have physical copies of the HBR in the Polk Library from 1953-2011.
HBR 500: List of Articles — As this list may change over time, please contact us with any questions.
Looking for an HBR Case Study?
While the library doesn’t purchase the longer HBR case studies that are normally incorporated into class course-packs, two options for acquiring HBR cases include:
- A teacher can purchase , after signing-in, class copies;
- Or individual students, after registering, can purchase the case studies .
When a teacher, after registering for a free educator account, goes to checkout at the HBR site, they will be guided as to the necessary or most appropriate copyright permissions needed.

Due to licensing restrictions, Harvard Business School Case Studies are limited to classroom use by individual students. The BU Libraries (including Pardee Library) cannot purchase cases for the library’s collections, or obtain cases through Interlibrary Loan. Individuals may purchase copies of cases for their own personal use directly from Harvard Business Publishing .
Instructors that assign Harvard Business School cases to their students can set up course packs directly with Harvard Business Publishing . Students will need to pay a fee to access the course pack and cost will vary depending on number of cases involved.
If you would rather not pay a fee for cases, please review this guide further for cases available through existing library resources or Open Access Cases (free).
A small number of case studies can be found in Harvard Business Review via our Business Source Complete subscription (1922-present) or in print at Pardee Library (1990-present). To limit your search results in Business Source Complete to case studies, select "Case Study" for the Document Type. Another source for business cases is Harvard Business Review Digital Articles (2007-present). You should also select "Case Study" for the Document Type to limit search results to case studies.
In August 2013, HBR designated 500 of their most popular articles as "read-only" and restricted the ability to print or download those articles in Business Source Complete. While it may change over time, the original list of articles is available here: HBR 500 . If you need an article that is part of the HBR 500, you may be able to access it through our Harvard Business Review print subscription at Pardee Library.
*Faculty: Please note that HBR articles from our Business Source Complete subscription may not be linked to course management systems due to licensing restrictions, however, articles can be purchased directly from Harvard Business School Publishing for inclusion in course packs.

Amity Research Centers has selected 10 cases from its health and medical care collection to be available free via The Case Centre. Amity Research Centers feels there is a dearth of expertise in health and medical care and that knowledge of developments and initiatives in healthcare is limited. It makes a deliberate effort to write cases about healthcare management in various organisations and for public health policy makers.

Australia and New Zealand School of Government's (ANZSOG) teaching cases are all set in the public sector, and cover topics including accountability and governance, public value, co-production, change and innovation, collaboration and partnerships, risk management and regulation, with a number of cases dealing with human resource management, and the management of information technology and knowledge.
ANZSOG cases are concise, lively and engaging, and an active window on current public sector practice in the southern hemisphere.
Building on its entrepreneurial legacy to advance entrepreneurial thought and action for the world, Babson College partnered with Banco de Chile to immerse 20 faculty members from ten Chilean universities into the rigorous art of entrepreneurship case writing and teaching. The project has produced 11 Chilean entrepreneurship cases, each with an English and Spanish version.
This collection of free cases are written by Turkish scholars, about Turkish management situations, for Turkish students/learners. They were developed as part of a three-year project funded by Erasmus+.
These free cases from the Australian College of the Arts (Collarts) are aimed at students studying music organisations in arts management or music business programmes. They are written by eminent music insiders, including Paul Saintilan, Dean of Collarts, previously at EMI Music and Universal Music; Rob Cannon of the Australian Institute of Music who has also held international record company roles; and Michael Smellie, a former Chief Operating Officer at Sony BMG.
This collection of free cases is part of Copenhagen Business School’s commitment to the Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME). All the cases focus on aspects of responsible management, including social responsibility, anti-corruption and sustainability. The cases address a number of interdisciplinary subjects making them suitable for a wide range of courses in business schools and universities. New free cases will be added regularly.
Developed as part of a project co-financed by the Directorate General Enterprise and Industry of the European Commission, this free case collection includes 18 innovative teaching cases on technology entrepreneurship.
The cases all have accompanying teaching notes and many have media support items.
Few resources on the delivery of health services and health technologies in low-resource settings currently exist for educators.
The Global Health Delivery Project at Harvard University has begun to fill this gap with a series of teaching cases and accompanying teaching notes examining principles of healthcare delivery in low-resource settings that are freely available for download and distribution.
The International Institute for Management Development's (IMD) collection of free cases includes a case series on the KasKazi Network that deals with the distribution of fast-moving consumer goods to low-income areas in Kenya. The collection also includes 11 'climate saver' cases that showcase corporate best practices in carbon-saving products and processes. The cases were featured at the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference thanks to IMD's collaboration with the WWF's Climate Savers.
INSEAD offer a growing collection of free cases on topical subjects.
This collection of 12 free teaching cases was developed by Medical Peace Work, a partnership of medical organisations and teaching institutions committed to the development of expertise in health work, violence prevention and peace building. The cases depict challenging situations for health professionals who are looking for ways to prevent and reduce violence and other forms of power abuse, and to build trust, understanding, mutually enriching structures and a culture of peace.
In early 2009, the MIT Sloan School of Management began free distribution of select teaching materials created by faculty and students at the school.
The collection, available on LearningEdge and via The Case Centre, covers a wide array of companies and organisations, industries, and geographies, and focuses on a number of business disciplines.
The MNC Whispering video case collection is a series of open-source video cases aimed to bring a more attractive education and training to international business (IB), with a new generation of students who are visually oriented, prefer video over text, and use virtual rather than face-to-face communications.
MNC Whispering uses the original methodology developed and used by Brands Whisper’g®, expanding and testing it specifically for the IB area.
The cases are co-created between academics and businesses, and narrated by international executives explaining their problems and ‘whispering’ their solutions.
As part of an Erasmus+ Project called Video Case Library 4 International Business (VCL4IB) (KA203 Project 2018-1-BE02-KA203-046832), funded by the European Union, the collection is an open accessed web and video-based one. The project partners KU Leuven (Belgium), University of Leeds (UK), University of Ljubljana (Slovenia), Poznan University of Economics and Business (Poland), and El Izi Communications Consultancy UK Limited have created an interesting line-up of companies. They come from various backgrounds, operating in different industries, and tackling many of the IB problems that firms encounter when internationalising.
An exciting and up-to-date collection, each video case covers a number of IB topics. In this collection, there are 14 video cases and 21 knowledge clips which were produced between 2019-2021. The collection is designed to cover many of the IB topics that feature in regular textbooks. Yet, all information is delivered in a video format, with each chapter being covered with real life cases. Following each video case, one or more knowledge clips are added to relate the video cases to academic insights, theories and frameworks. These knowledge clips can be used as part of a class discussion, or as study material linking the specific case to theory.
The Rotterdam School of Management (RSM) provides a growing set of teaching cases in its free case collection. At the moment it provides three free case collections.
The first group – QuInnE cases – derive from the research results of QuInnE, an interdisciplinary EU-funded project investigating the interdependence of job quality and innovation and its effect on job creation.
The second group – ENABLE cases – derive from the European Network for the Advancement of Business and Landscape Education (ENABLE) project, which develops much-needed education on integrated landscape management using sustainable business models.
The third group – Sustainable Development Goals cases – derive from RSM’s initiative to embed SDGs in its curriculum. These cases explore the complexity of sustainable development, requiring students to go beyond their own specialisations in order to understand the environmental, social, and economic dimensions of sustainability.
Stanford Graduate School of Business has produced a large number of free cases covering subjects such as e-commerce, entrepreneurship, international business, marketing, operations information & technology, political economics and strategic management.
The Case Centre has partnered with a group of leading business schools to provide this collection of free cases on topical issues.
Currently 10 free cases are available covering a wide variety of subject categories and topics.
The Legatum Center for Development and Entrepreneurship at Massachusetts Institute of Technology case studies illuminate the thought processes of entrepreneurs, the challenges they face, and the solutions they devise as they develop their businesses. These cases are available without charge to help teachers, students, and aspiring entrepreneurs. At the same time, they may demonstrate to academics and governments the value of entrepreneurial activities in low-income countries.
