About SAGE Business Cases

SAGE Business Cases

SAGE Business Cases brings business to life – inspiring students and researchers to develop their own best practices and prepare for professional success. The first significant, discipline-wide, digital collection tailored to library needs – SAGE Business Cases is highly-interactive, faculty-friendly, and allows for instant and lasting IP access rather than the usual per case purchase model.

  • Designed to suit a range of academic uses: from short vignettes to narrative long form, written using both field research and publicly available sources.
  • Campus-wide access provides easy discovery for students and faculty to use in courses and research.
  • Critically minded, up-to-date, and complementary to other SAGE Business & Management content.
  • Many cases will include teaching notes and discussion questions to ensure effective classroom use.
  • Offered on SAGE’s digital library platform, SAGE Knowledge, these cases are integrated with SAGE’s book, video, and reference content, allowing for a rich scholarly environment and enhanced discovery.
  • The SAGE Business Cases team will release a 1,000-case collection in April 2016, a big step toward our full-product goal of 2,500 cases by 2018.
  • Available for subscription or purchase.
