Academics, corporates and students of WBS can get easy online access to leading case studies and utilise these for the purpose of teaching and business insight. The studies present real-life business challenges and management processes – in the South African context and internationally – covering strategy, organisational design and development, entrepreneurship, internationalisation, operations management and human resources.

The WBS Case Centre has developed more than 250 cases on companies as diverse as AngloGold, SABMiller, Nando’s, Discovery, Harley Davidson, Avis, Massmart, Capitec Bank and many others. The case studies put you right in the time and place that companies faced some of their biggest turning points – taking a successful local concept into the international market, losing a critical contract, at the brink of a national franchise launch, plus many more challenging scenarios.
