ESMT wins two Case Centre Awards 2014

03.03.2014

ESMT European School of Management and Technology has received two awards for case studies in the Case Centre Awards competition 2014.

Together with Harvard Business School and INSEAD, ESMT is one of only three business schools honored with two prizes this year. As one of the world’s largest provider of case studies, the Case Centre has recognized outstanding cases since 1991.

Business schools use case studies to demonstrate real business situations and to illustrate theoretical concepts in the classroom.

Dr. Urs Müller and Shirish Pandit, program directors at ESMT, won the “Case Writing Competition Hot Topic: Crisis as Opportunity” category with a case study about Vodafone in Egypt. The case “Vodafone in Egypt: National Crises and Their Implications for Multinational Corporations” focuses on the effects of political upheaval on businesses.

The case study “Anna Frisch at Aesch AG: Initiating Lateral Change” by ESMT program directors Dr. Urs Müller and Ulf Schäfer received the Case Centre Award in Human Resource Management / Organizational Behavior. The study deals with the launch of a marketing initiative and the question of which factors are imperative for successfully implementing change in companies.

Prof. Olaf Plötner, Dean of Executive Education at ESMT, said, “We are delighted that our case studies have once again been recognized by the Case Centre. For us it is important to combine practically relevant case studies and top-class cutting-edge research in the classroom.”

Im Focus: Newly discovered material property may lead to high temp superconductivity

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Ames Laboratory have discovered an unusual property of purple bronze that may point to new ways to achieve high temperature superconductivity.

While studying purple bronze, a molybdenum oxide, researchers discovered an unconventional charge density wave on its surface.

Im Focus: Mapping electromagnetic waveforms

Munich Physicists have developed a novel electron microscope that can visualize electromagnetic fields oscillating at frequencies of billions of cycles per second.

Temporally varying electromagnetic fields are the driving force behind the whole of electronics. Their polarities can change at mind-bogglingly fast rates, and...

Im Focus: Continental tug-of-war - until the rope snaps

Breakup of continents with two speed: Continents initially stretch very slowly along the future splitting zone, but then move apart very quickly before the onset of rupture. The final speed can be up to 20 times faster than in the first, slow extension phase.phases

Present-day continents were shaped hundreds of millions of years ago as the supercontinent Pangaea broke apart. Derived from Pangaea’s main fragments Gondwana...

Im Focus: New protocol enables analysis of metabolic products from fixed tissues

Scientists at the Helmholtz Zentrum München have developed a new mass spectrometry imaging method which, for the first time, makes it possible to analyze hundreds of metabolites in fixed tissue samples. Their findings, published in the journal Nature Protocols, explain the new access to metabolic information, which will offer previously unexploited potential for tissue-based research and molecular diagnostics.

In biomedical research, working with tissue samples is indispensable because it permits insights into the biological reality of patients, for example, in...
