About HBR

The Harvard Business School has produced many business case studies, as well as other material, in two separate publications.

For more information about HBR case studies, consult the library guide on Case studies.

Note: You should not link to articles directly from the public website because there is a limit to the number of articles you can access for free and your students may meet a paywall.

If you still cannot find what you need, contact the Library's Teaching Support team.
