The Case Centre to Include Cases by HSE
The Case Centre, the world’s largest storage resource for study cases in business and management, now includes cases from HSE.
‘Study cases are an integral part of management training,’ said Igor Gurkov regarding the project, adding: ‘They are especially important for MBA programmes. Initially, cases were used to solve strategic and HR management problems. However, today they are used in marketing courses, as well as in teaching finance, microeconomics, and macroeconomics. Many cases, especially those marked as ‘field research’, contain unique information about companies or particular issues received directly from executives and other managers.’
Four cases by HSE lecturers have been dedicated to HEM LTD, a company involved in the manufacture and sale of equipment and supplies to medical laboratories. These cases offer the real “saga” of HEM LTD’s development since its founding in the early 1990s up until April 2016. They demonstrate the real problems and difficulties faced when innovative projects are implemented in Russian companies. The creation of such a “saga”, including detailed information about the company, its partners, business environment and state regulation of medicine and related areas, was possible thanks to the support of Stanislav Goldberg, CEO of HEM LTD and a board member of Opora Rossii (a Russian association of small and medium-sized enterprises).
The more Russian and international students know about the realities of Russian business, the easier it will be for them to work in Russian companies or do business with them.
