Case Study Hub



The GIBS Case Study Hub was established to improve and enhance our case writing and case studies through mentorship and quality control of cases published under the name of GIBS and the University of Pretoria. Prof. Albert Wöcke leads the GIBS Case Study Hub. He is supported by a panel of experienced case writers who have won several awards. 

Case teaching is a core part of a business schools’ teaching methodology; the quality of our students is measured by the quality of the decisions that they make. Cases are not simply good stories; they provide opportunities to apply theory to real-life problems or dilemmas. GIBS has produced an increasing number of case studies that are published and used both locally and internationally. GIBS cases are of a high standard and often replace US-based cases with African and South African contexts. As a result, our cases are used by business schools across the continent and by students in Europe and North America wanting to learn more about doing business in Emerging Markets, Africa and South Africa.


August 2022 - New GIBS/Ivey case "Rio Tinto and the Indigenous Juukan Gorge Sites" 
Amy does it again! In what is a first for GIBS, we are extremely proud to announce that Professional Associate Amy Moore’s case, Rio Tinto and the Indigenous Juukan Gorge Sites, has now been published by Ivey.

A short while back we communicated that Ivey Publishing had taken the decision to combine two very similar cases into one, and the end result is a wonderful collaboration between Ivey faculty and Amy Moore. 

This is a remarkable achievement Amy and we applaud your ongoing contribution to the GIBS Case Study Hub of high-quality cases. Well done from us all.

May 2022 – The Case Journal compact case competiton.
Two of our colleagues Prof Marianne Matthee and Amy Moore’s case study titled “When Foreign Direct Investment is Threatened: Rio Tinto and Richards Bay Minerals” placed second in The Case Journal compact case competition which was run by Emerald Press. Further great news is that it has been accepted for publication in Emerald’s Case Journal. We congratulate them on this wonderful achievement. In the recent months we have had very prestigious wins in various case competitions, as we continue to strive for this high standard of case writing. 

January 2022 - GIBS wins in “The Case for Women” 2021 competition.
Congratulations to Amy Moore and Dr Tracey Toefy on placing second in “The Case for Women” 2021 competition hosted by Emerald with their case Mitti Café: Enabling Disability Inclusion in India through Scalable Business Model. With the growing demand for cases which focus on sustainability, the Mitti Café fits the bill as it is completely linked to SDGs.
