The resource pool of high-quality international cases is vast; the same cannot be said of cases set in South Africa This book aims to fill that gap to some extent It is true that much can be learned from international cases, but the South African business arena has a range of unique characteristics that cannot be depicted in cases set in international contexts. The intention is that, by covering the full range of core subject disciplines in management education, the book will provide an accessible source of excellent teaching case studies that will enhance the teaching and learning experience of faculty members and students alike.

The book has been divided into five parts, Economics, Human Resources, Marketing, Finance and Strategy.
