Ordering case studies

Note: Service only available to HEC Paris professors and program coordinators at HEC Paris

To order one or more copies of a case

  • Enter the required information and email the form to biblio@hec.fr

The library will place the order with the supplier and then provide you with the links to the cases ordered.

Useful information for professors

The library purchases cases from Harvard Business Publishing, Case Center (former ECCH), and CCMP.

For your information, you can check on the Catalogue Flora if a specific case study has already been used on the campus, at what date et for which program.

HEC Paris has its own case studies collection on CCMP, written by HEC Paris professors. These cases can be used free of charge but are to be asked at the library.

On Harvard Business Publishing and Case Center, professors have the ability to set up a personal profile, which will give access to inspection copies and teaching note for free.
