INSEAD, the business school for the world, announced that four of its recent case studies have won awards in international competitions by EFMD, oikos, and the AFM-CCMP.
“Congratulations to these faculty and writers for their success in developing cases that inspire minds all around the world,” says Ziv Carmon, Dean of Research and The Alfred H. Heineken Chaired Professor of Marketing, “At INSEAD, we are committed to producing cutting-edge impactful research that is both rigorous and relevant. Our contribution to the case method is reflected in over 2,000 INSEAD cases being used in numerous business schools and universities around the world, and in 87 awards that we received over the past 27 years that represent 32% of the total awards given out by the Case Centre.”
2017 EFMD Case Writing Competition – winner in ‘Latin American Business Cases’ category
EFMD is a globally recognised accreditation body for quality & impact assessment in management.
Professor Felipe Monteiro comments that, “We are delighted to win this award with the case about the rise and fall of the formidable billionaire Eike Batista. His tale of boom and bust could be taken from the pages of a novel, with Batista’s larger-than-life personality that gained him extraordinary popularity in Brazil (and abroad) as his empire grew.”

- Second Prize, Corporate Sustainability track
Authors: Craig Smith, INSEAD Chaired Professor of Ethics and Social Responsibility, and Erin McCormick, Researcher/Case Writer

Professor N. Craig Smith says that, “It is great to hear that our INSEAD case on the Volkswagen emissions scandal received second prize in the oikos Case Writing competition, Corporate Sustainability track. This recognition will no doubt increase the adoption of this fascinating case about how organisations can go rogue.”

Authors: Pierre Chandon, The L'Oréal Chaired Professor of Marketing – Innovation and Creativity at INSEAD, and Laura Heely.
Professor Pierre Chandon says that, “It is a great honour to be recognised by the oikos Case Writing competition (Corporate Sustainability), especially because our case relies on research that I have conducted over 15 years to examine how the chocolate industry can align business, health, and eating enjoyment.”
