Case study initiative enhances Kellogg School’s academic reputation

by Deborah Leigh Wood

Kellogg faculty have initiated, written and submitted more than a dozen new case studies to the Kellogg School’s database since the Office of the Dean began providing faculty funding in November 2003, says Sheila Duran, director of the Kellogg publication initiatives.

There currently are about 70 cases available on the searchable online Kellogg catalogue, which launched this spring, and approximately 45 additional case studies are scheduled to be posted in the next several months, Duran says.

The online case-study catalogue has been well-received by both the Kellogg School community, and the general academic community, Duran notes. The catalogue serves to promote knowledge at Kellogg, further enhance the school’s reputation in the academic and corporate communities, and emphasize “the high quality of teaching at Kellogg and the lengths to which our faculty go to have the best pedagogical materials,” Duran says.

She reports that her office has hired an experienced case writer to expedite the process of completing the studies. The Office of the Dean is exploring broader availability of Kellogg School cases through domestic and international clearinghouses.
