With the rapidly growing importance of sustainability and corporate responsibility in a globalised world, management schools are increasingly integrating long-term economic, environmental and social issues into their teaching and research. Business education needs to reflect this new reality and provide a broadened understanding of value creation in order to create economic capital while developing social and preserving natural capital.
This third collection of oikos case studies is based on the winning cases from the 2010 to 2013 annual case competition. These cases have been highly praised because they provide excellent learning opportunities, tell engaging stories, deal with recent situations, include quotations from key actors, are thought-provoking and controversial, require decision-making, provide clear take-aways and are all supported by teaching guidance and comprehensive teaching notes available to faculty.
These cases are clustered in three different sections: "Large Corporations and Corporate Sustainability Dilemmas", "Managing Stakeholder Relations" and "Sustainability as a Source of Differentiation Strategies".
