Welcome to the Harvard Kennedy School Case Program. We are home to the largest case collection in the public management and non-profit sphere.

The nearly 2,000 cases, sequels, videos, and teaching notes can be searched online via our advanced search or by browsing through our topics page.

The Select Case Collection includes the latest and most widely used cases and teaching notes. These cases are available for purchase via Harvard Business Publishing (HBP). Simply click “educator copy” on case detail pages to order and preview cases through HBP’s special online access for educators.
