Special Issue of the Journal of Case Studies with the Global Jesuit Case Series
June 01, 2018
The Global Jesuit Case Series (GJCS) was formally launched in 2015 with the singular goal of establishing a series of real-world business cases, written by executives, educators and entrepreneurs whose work would place people and planet on equal footing with profit and emphasize maximizing values as well as value. Its founders envisioned leveraging the intellectual capacity, moral authority and rich history of the world’s nearly 200 Jesuit institutions of higher education in order to create these cases and shape the next generation of leaders. This joint journal published in collaboration with the Society for Case Research demonstrates that in the nearly three years since its inception, the GJCS is well on its way to achieving that aim. The GJCS has a dedicated staff, built a website, and created pilot cases – all designed to develop compassionate leaders who embrace diversity and globalization.
