Finding solutions to real policy challenges is at the heart of the Blavatnik School’s work, and this approach informs our teaching. Our new Case Centre on Public Leadership develops real-world case studies to aid learning. These form a distinctive element of our flagship Master of Public Policy programme, furthering its strong focus on applied policy. They are also available on request to other organisations that are committed to improving the practice of governance.
From banking reform to healthcare, our cases use real situations to illustrate complex policy challenges. They help students sharpen the analytical, decision-making and implementation skills needed in governments across the world. This blog about using case studies was written by a former MPP student.
Professor Karthik Ramanna, the Case Centre’s director, is a prolific author of case studies. His team of experienced case writers, including Sarah McAra, were awarded 2019 Outstanding Case Writer in the international Case Centre awards, dubbed by the Financial Times ‘the business school Oscars’. Professor Ramanna had previously received the award in 2017.

We are constantly developing new cases. If you are shaping policy in government, business and/or non-profit, and managing a scenario that could serve as an interesting topic for a case discussion, we would love to hear from you.
