Faculty members from the Richard Ivey School of Business have been awarded top honours in three of 14 categories in the 2013 European Foundation of Management Development (EFMD) case-writing competition. Ivey authored cases won in more categories than any other business school in the world.
Ivey professor Oana Branzei, along with Kim Poldner, won the Latin American Business Cases category for their case, Veja: Sneakers With a Conscience. Branzei, along with Satyajeet Subramanian and Charles Dhanaraj, also won in the Indian Management Issues and Opportunities category for their case, Bayer CropScience in India (A): Against Child Labor.
Ivey professor Paul W. Beamish, along with Bassam Farah, won in the MENA Business Cases category for their case, Chabros International Group: A World of Wood.
Three additional cases registered with the Ivey Publishing collection also took top prizes: Launch of Durra: Women in Islamic Banking by Alexandra Roth and David T.A. Wesley in the Euro-Mediterranean Managerial Practices and Issues category; Danfoss - Global Manufacturing Footprint by Torben Pedersen and Jacob Pyndt; and Novo Nordisk: Managing Sustainability at Home and Abroad by Jette Steen Knudsen and Dana Brown in the Corporate Social Responsibility category.
Additional cases distributed through Ivey Publishing were also selected as runner-ups and will receive Highly Commended mentions from the judges because of their outstanding quality in three categories: Indian Management Issues and Opportunities, Family Business and African Business Cases.
“We are pleased to see so many Ivey-registered cases recognized by EFMD,” said Matt Quin, Ivey Publishing director. “As the second largest case distributor in the world, Ivey takes great pride in producing high quality cases which aim to be current, meeting the demands of business educators.”
This year the prestigious EFMD competition received a record number of submissions from 30 countries worldwide.
