Through funding from the Foundation for Enterprise Development, the Beyster Institute develops employee-ownership-related academic case studies. The use of case studies as teaching tools is gaining popularity in higher education, especially business education. Through our connections with students and faculty, these studies help spread the employee ownership concept through the natural course of business education.
On their own, these case studies are compelling and raise many significant and widely applicable business issues. In addition, the case companies' core value of employee ownership plays an important role in the issues presented. We have partnered with nationally recognized case study writers to produce and publish these studies, including Dave Rosenthal of University of Miami, Ohio; and Ann Lawrence of San Jose State University.
