Book Shipments

Our thanks:

  • To the thousands of students and faculty members who have donated books/course packs/journals/cases for eventual shipment to a university in one of the 39 countries
  • To the Academy of International Business for covering the actual costs of many of the container shipments
  • To the groups of MSc/MBA/PhD students, plus faculty and staff colleagues, who assisted in sorting and packing the boxes of content prior to shipment
  • To those custodians and facilities staff who "went the extra mile" with their assistance
  • To the staff of Ivey Publishing for the many ways in which they make it easier for the thousands of faculty members within the 39 countries to access the Ivey case collection for use with their students
  • To the dozens of business schools around the world who contribute hard copies for eventual shipment
  • To those faculty members who volunteer their time to put on case teaching workshops in the eligible countries in order to help colleagues there better utilize the content we make available


One of the key activities of the 39 Country Initiative is the collection and shipment of large quantities of printed books, journals, and business case studies to higher education institutions in the 39 countries. Each shipment is comprised of approximately 10,000 individual items.

To assist with the large scale collection of materials, the 39 Country Initiative has organized a global network of business schools. These schools act as collection nodes for specific regions.
