In the Summer
of 1998, AMI embarked on a project with
Multi-Lingua Publishing International Inc. /
China Machine Press / Huazhang Graphics Company
in presenting "A Total Solution for
Management Education Material in China".
Ivey, in collaboration with Tsinghua University
in Beijing, compiled 16 casebooks to directly
correspond to each of the required courses in
China?s MBA programs. This was in direct
response to the requirement established by the
State Education Commission of China for teaching
25% of the MBA curriculum via the case method.
In 1999, an expanded set of 16 Ivey casebooks,
in total 219 cases in Chinese, were published.
In 2001, Ivey continued with a new phase of
translated casebooks for China adding new
topics: E-Commerce, International
Entrepreneurship, and Organizational Behaviour.
The China Casebook Series is available in major
book stores throughout China. All of the cases
are accompanied by teaching notes which are
available to qualified instructors in a
comprehensive manual from the publisher.
