John Molson Case Publications

The CN Centre for Studies in Sustainable Supply Chain Management was established in 2012 through a $500,000 donation from Canadian National Railway Company (CN).

From integrating case-based teaching into the curriculum, to training and sending students to case competitions around the world, to hosting international competitions here in Montreal, the John Molson School of Business has long been a champion of the case method. The JMSB community knows that the use of cases provides unique insights for students: cases highlight real-world business challenges and offer opportunities to connect classroom concepts to business issues.

As part of JMSB’s commitment to the case method, the JMSB Case Publications Initiative was founded to support the development of new teaching case studies under the JMSB banner. By producing relevant case studies customized to our curriculum, often with Quebec-based companies, we forge stronger ties to the business and non-profit community, while providing students with educational opportunities based on where they live and work.

Our vision is to support JMSB academic programs through an ever-growing body of work reflecting contemporary and diverse businesses of relevance to faculty and students.
