Teaching with CRJ Cases

Where to Access Cases for your Classes

Adopting cases through NACRA distribution partners

NACRA cases are available for adoption through the leading distributors of business cases globally, including the Harvard Business School Press, Ivey Publishing and the Case Centre. Links to all of our distributors are below. Most of these distributors provide sophisticated search capabilities to allow you to find the perfect CRJ cases for your courses (if you want to find just CRJ cases when searching, include ‘NACRA’ as one of your search words). These distributors enable you to create a course pack for adoption by your students that combine CRJ cases with cases from other sources, textbook chapters, business publications, and in some instances your own content.

NACRA currently has agreements with the following distributors.

If you are using one of these distributors, but cannot find the CRJ case you want, contact the NACRA VP Case Marketing to see if it can be added to that collection for you.

Curtis E. Tate Award Winning Cases

The Curtis E. Tate Jr. Award is given each year at NACRA’s annual meeting to the case that is deemed to be the best case published in the Case Research Journal in the preceding year. The process for determining the award recipient begins with the editors of the CRJ nominating up to eight cases for the award. A panel of the three most recent past presidents of NACRA then select two to four cases as finalists and from this set of finalists select the Tate Award winning case. Below are the finalists and Tate award winners for the past few years, along with the Tate award winners going back to 2010. If you are looking for good examples of what Case Research Journal cases should be like, these are good cases to look at.
