The partnership between Harvard Business Publishing (HBP) and Suleman Dawood School of Business (SDSB) will entail publishing of LUMS’ Business School’s cases on the website of HBP. The cases will now be available alongside Harvard cases from Fall 2017. The agreement between the two institutions will allow LUMS to join foundations like Stanford, Babson, Wharton, IMD and Princeton who have such arrangements with HBP.
The faculty of LUMS and SDSB have achieved a milestone by partnering with Harvard. It will put SDSB cases on the map of international cases along with its faculty. As a result, most of the cases would be taught across the globe.
Statement of Dean at SDSB
Jawad Syed, PhD, Academic FCIPD, Dean & Professor of Organisational Behaviour at SDSB stated:
“The next step is to continue to produce high quality cases of local relevance and international significance on a regular basis, incorporate and use them in our academic and executive programmes, and reduce our reliance on foreign subscriptions”
Dr. Syed, while airing his thoughts, was also of the view that the agreement between 2 institutions showcases the significance LUMS gives to teaching and international partnership.
Furthermore, the partnership took place after a thorough negotiation and wide-spread review process by the editorial team at Harvard. The team evaluated SDSB cases for the content, format and language.
