First presented in 1991, The Case Centre Awards, which the Financial Times has described as the “the business school Oscars,” aim to recognize worldwide excellence in case writing and raise the profile of the case method of learning.

Based at Cranfield University in the United Kingdom, the Case Centre is an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting the case method in business education and sharing world-leading knowledge and expertise in case teaching, writing, and learning.

Hau L. Lee, the Thoma Professor of Operations, Information and Technology was honored for his case study “Everything is Connected: A New Era of Sustainability at Li & Fung.” This case is used in operations or supply chain courses to highlight the importance of sustainability as companies globalize their supply bases involving emerging economies.
