Project Detail


Case Consortium at Columbia

Partner(s): Various - School of Journalism, et al.

The Case Consortium @ Columbia (CC@C) was founded in 2011 by the Graduate School of Journalism, the Joseph L. Mailman School of Public Health, and the School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA). The consortium library, administered by the Columbia University Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL), now holds more than 80 interdisciplinary case studies, which are used in upwards of 100 colleges and universities worldwide. The CTL continues the mission of the Consortium; producing case studies which train students to think like professional managers and industry leaders.

The CTL promotes the use and creation of case studies through the CC@C collection to enhance student's educational experiences at the university and abroad. The case studies are free open educational resources that prepare students for the complexity of real-life decisions they will likely face during their careers. Each case requires students to put themselves in the shoes of industry professionals and to grapple with a wide range of issues. Components of some case studies are slowly revealed in class, thus stimulating the actual situation and the stressful decision points that unfold with it. The case study initiative aims to develop students' analytic, decision-making, management, and leadership skills by adding case-based learning to traditional instruction.
