Case studies have an important role to play in the overall teaching strategy. These will be selected to achieve wide sectional coverage of international industry and services including traditional, service, mature and technically advanced sectors e.g. international retailing, airlines, pharmaceuticals, consumer electronics, automobiles, and computers.
