Harvard Business School Cases
Experience is the best teacher, and the case method packs more experience into every hour of learning than any other instructional approach. That’s why it forms the basis of learning at Harvard Business School as well as many other universities around the world. In case discussions, students are introduced to the reality of decision making — including incomplete information, time constraints, and conflicting goals — giving them first-hand experience in analyzing business situations. Case studies stimulate students’ thinking, challenge their capabilities, and prepare them for future managerial decision making.
University Network for Social Entrepreneurship
The University Network for Social Entrepreneurship works with professors and researchers, practitioners and students to develop social entrepreneurship as a vocation and carry its principles into other disciplines and sectors. It is designed to be a resource hub and an action-oriented forum to expand social entrepreneurship education and provide resources to faculty including a number of case studies.

A world pioneer in microfinance, Boston-based nonprofit ACCION International was founded in 1961 and issued the first microloan in 1973 in Brazil. Since then, it has led the evolution from simple microloans to a full range of financial services for the self-employed poor such as savings, insurance, housing loans, and remittances. ACCION envisions a world in which financial systems work for the poor so that they have the same opportunities to create and grow businesses as those with higher incomes. By bringing financial services to people who have historically been ignored by banks, ACCION has helped inspire a whole new kind of banking: microfinance.

College Summit’s mission is to increase the college enrollment rate of low-income students by ensuring that every student who can make it in college makes it to college, and by putting college access “know-how” and support within the reach of every student. Tired of seeing students “graduate” from his teen center to the street, J.B. Schramm became determined to help admissions offices see students the way he saw them. The program helps bright, low-income students who, with the right support during the post-secondary transition, could propel their lives (and communities) in a positive direction. The program has worked in partnership with schools, school districts and colleges to develop a sustainable model for raising college enrollment rates community wide.
Crayons to Computers
Crayons to Computers (C2C), a free store for teachers, is a home grown initiative that supports education. Germinated from a Leadership Cincinnati class project, the private nonprofit organization collects the community’s surplus merchandise and distributes it at no cost to area teachers for use in their classrooms and for needy students. Teachers routinely spend their own money on basic supplies because academic budgets are strained and families cannot afford necessary pencils and paper. Believing that every child should have an equal chance to succeed in school, the group opened the store in 1997 and since then has distributed over $45 million worth of free supplies, educational materials, and incentive items to more than 75,000 children. C2C operates with a skeletal staff of eight persons and an army of hundreds of dedicated volunteers who sort donations and stock shelves. It is the national model for 31 other teacherresource centers in the country.
When Muhammad Yunus started giving out tiny loans under a system which later became known as the Grameen Bank, Yunus never imagined that one day he would be reaching four million borrowers. Grameen Bank provides credit to the poorest of the poor in rural Bangladesh without any collateral. At Grameen Bank, credit is a cost effective weapon for fighting poverty, serving as a catalyst for overall socio-economic development.
Institute for OneWorld Health
OneWorld Health’s approach is simple. Assemble an experienced and dedicated team of pharmaceutical scientists. Identify the most promising drug and vaccine candidates. Develop them into safe, effective and affordable medicines. Then partner with companies, nonprofit hospitals and organizations in the developing world to conduct medical research on new cures and manufacture and distribute approved therapies that will impact the health of millions of people. The organization challenges the assumption that pharmaceutical research and development is too expensive to create the new medicines that the developing world desperately needs. By partnering and collaborating with industry and researchers, by securing donated intellectual property, and by utilizing the scientific and manufacturing capacity of the developing world, OneWorld Health can deliver affordable, effective and appropriate new medicines where they are needed most.

А вы можете представить себе музей, где пахнет кофе и можно попробовать блюда Петровской эпохи? Где слышны плеск волн и крики чаек, где скрипят канаты и раздаются звуки морской баталии. Где вы можете подняться на палубу корабля ипочувствовать себя посреди Азовского сражения. И надо добавить, что музей этот находится не около моря, а в столице Черноземья – в Воронеже.
