Cases

Ivey is well-known for its collaborative and practical case method teaching. Learning through cases challenges students to analyze information, make decisions, and defend those decisions when others may disagree. 

Many of the cases taught in Ivey classrooms are written by faculty and case writers from Ivey. The School has an active collection of over 5,000 cases and is the second largest producer of management case studies in the world. Below is a subset of that collection of cases that tackle issues and questions related to sustainability.
