The competition, first launched in 2010, aims to reach out to a wide network ofIndian and global business schools with the objective of building a repository of high-quality, internationally benchmarked cases about Indian businesses. The cases are judged by a panel of internationally-acclaimed subject experts and top cases from this competition are published as co-branded ISB-Ivey cases. The published cases are then marketed and distributed to a global audience of business schools through Ivey and Harvard Publishing (Harvard University, USA) - the two largest sources of business cases in the world.
