The Thunderbird Case Series (TCS)

The Thunderbird Case Series (TCS) is the official case clearinghouse for global business cases and notes authored by the Thunderbird School of Global Management faculty. The cases offered through the series are produced for educational purposes only. All revenue generated by the sale of Thunderbird Cases goes to defraying the cost of running the series, as well as supporting continuing case-writing research by Thunderbird faculty and students.

The Thunderbird Case Series offers both field cases and library cases. All cases have a detailed teaching note (available only to faculty), and all cases have been classroom-tested for pedagogy and content. Case abstracts can be downloaded to your personal computer and cases may be ordered from any of the following vendors (Harvard is the preferred source): Harvard Business Publishing, The Case Centre, Ivey Publishing, XanEdu, Pearson Publishing, McGraw Hill.
