A case study might be defined as a research strategy, an empirical inquiry that investigates a phenomenon within its real-life context. Case study research can mean single and multiple case studies, can include quantitative evidence, relies on multiple sources of evidence, and benefits from the prior development of theoretical propositions. Case studies should not be confused with qualitative research and they can be based on any mix of quantitative and qualitative evidence. Single-subject research provides the statistical framework for making inferences from quantitative case-study data.This is also supported and well-formulated in (Lamnek, 2005): "The case study is a research approach, situated between concrete data taking techniques and methodologic paradigms."
Most students enjoy Case Studies to improve their modelling skills. Posting any kind of Case Studies is one of the best ways of keeping students informed about any real world phenomenon. For this, from time to time we will post new sets of Case Studies in this page. Each item will contain information about the source of that case study.
