To feature in the list is a considerable achievement. Consider, then, the achievement of Professor Debapratim Purkayastha who tops the list for the fifth consecutive year. Professor Purkayastha deserves huge congratulations for his continuing success, and continuing enthusiasm for adopting innovative approaches to case writing.”

The other bestselling authors are from internationally reputed B-schools like Harvard Business School, IMD, INSEAD, etc. The list of top best-selling case authors is based on total sales (cases bought by B-schools around the world) from the cases for each author in the academic year 2019-2020.

My confidence on the case method of teaching has been reinforced in these unusual and challenging times, and at IBS, we are entrenching it deeper into our curriculum. More institutions are likely to adopt active learning strategies to make their online classes more engaging - and what better way than to spice up a session with a real world case!”
