Our Bureau Hyderabad | Updated on January 20, 2018 Published on March 02, 2016

Faculty from ICFAI Business School (IBS), Hyderabad, have won two awards at The Case Centre Awards and Competitions 2016’, which are considered the case method community's annual 'Oscars'.

Now in their 26th year, these awards celebrate excellence in business and management education worldwide. Management category awards are given in nine categories including entrepreneurship; ethics & social responsibility; finance, accounting & control and knowledge, information & communication systems management.

The case study ‘IKEA in Russia: Ethical Dilemmas’ authored by G V Muralidhara and Namratha V Prasad won the award in the ‘Ethics and Social Responsibility’ category. The case study documented the dilemma faced by a well-recognised company that wanted to adhere to ethical standards even though not doing so would have been easier from a business point of view. It helps students realise that giving into corruption does not make business easier in the long run.

The case study ‘Netflix: Leveraging Big Data to Predict Entertainment Hits’ authored by Debapratim Purkayastha and Tangirala Vijay Kumar won the award in the ‘Knowledge, Information and Communication Systems Management’ category. The case study is about Netflix, a DVD rental and video streaming company, which began to employ big data to track, record and assess detailed information about its customers’ viewing preferences, choices and habits. It helps students realise how today’s managers are required to effectively leverage the explosive growth in the volume of data in meaningful ways that can be used to drive business decision-making.

The winners in other categories included authors from top Business Schools including Harvard Business School, INSEAD, HEC Paris and Ivey Business School.

The Case Centre, UK, is the world's largest repository of management case studies. IBS Hyderabad is a major contributor to this repository. It has a dedicated Case Research Centre that develops contemporary case studies in management that are used by institutions around the globe, a press release said.

A letter from the Editor

Dear Readers,

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers. Newspaper delivery agents have also been unable to service their customers because of multiple restrictions.

In these difficult times, we, at BusinessLine have been working continuously every day so that you are informed about all the developments – whether on the pandemic, on policy responses, or the impact on the world of business and finance. Our team has been working round the clock to keep track of developments so that you – the reader – gets accurate information and actionable insights so that you can protect your jobs, businesses, finances and investments.

Our website and apps too, are updated every minute, so that you can access the information you want anywhere, anytime.
