CaseWorks Student Fellows Program
Students interested in case development may work with Business School faculty to research and write a case. With the permission of faculty, students may also receive independent study credit for their work. CaseWorks provides editorial and formatting guidance to any student engaged in case development and, with faculty approval, student-written cases may be included in the published CaseWorks case collection.
Second year MBA students may also apply to join the Columbia CaseWorks Student Fellows Program, although participation in this Program is not a prerequisite for case development. An open information session will be held in the fall. Students may submit case proposals on a rolling basis through the first semester.
