On a Practical Note...

Case Lead

We’ve been contacted by a company that is interested in having a case written about them that focuses on mergers and acquisitions. Specifically, the case would focus on a series of acquisitions that happened in 2009, and allowed the company to go from manufacturer, to a fully integrated firm controlling the entire sales cycle.

If you’re interested in this case opportunity, and have a need for such a case in your class, please contact Shelley Bellyou for further information.

External Case Funding

Ivey has several donors that are interested in supporting teaching materials and case writing opportunities. See the Case Writing Request Form for full details, however the areas of interest are:

  • Energy
  • Digital Disruption
  • Diversity in Management
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Leadership & Innovation
  • Sustainability (to be completed by April 2019)
