Global competitiveness has led academic institutions to produce graduates who are sound in solving contemporary business issues in a responsive manner. Today, organizations require employees who are competent at bringing critical perspective with a global insight towards all work components. To address these grieving concerns pertaining to critical thinking, problem solving and effective communication & decision making, universities like Harvard, Warwick, Wharton, Oxford and so on have started teaching through case studies.

These business focused problem or decision based real life scenarios help students to develop skills to compete and sustain in the job market whilst significantly contributing towards economic wellbeing.

Importantly, teaching a case study or executing a case based class to make students learn a concept is entirely different from a traditional lecture. This requires instructors to learn and understand case execution process to meaningfully complete the discussion class in time.

In order to meet the global educational standards Sukkur Institute of Business Administration has been very keenly working on case teaching and case development. One of the evidence is the success of Sukkur IBA's fully Case Based MBA program.

To promote case teaching and case research, Sukkur IBA is stepping forward by providing a platform to new and seasoned case writers for interacting and learning from each other by attending this conference.
