Dublin City University PhD Scholar, Catherine Faherty has been granted one of The Case Centre’s Case Writing Scholarships. The prestigious award provides financial support to complete a case study and teaching note on a specific aspect of business management.
Recipients of the global scholarship are afforded a place on one of The Case Centre’s expert led case writing workshops. Those accepted under the scholarship are unpublished case writers and faculty members or PhD students with teaching responsibilities.
On hearing of the scholarship award, Catherine commented:
“It is a great honour to receive this award. The case method in business education has always intrigued me. It allows real-life business problems to be brought into the classroom and is now the favoured teaching tool of most of the world's leading business schools.”
Catherine added: “The Case Writing Scholarship will provide an invaluable opportunity for me to benefit from the knowledge and experience of internationally respected case writers.”
Catherine is undertaking a PhD in the area of entrepreneurship and family business in Dublin City University, Ireland. Her research is co-funded by the Irish Research Council and DCU Ryan Academy, a not-for-profit joint venture between Dublin City University and the family of the late Tony Ryan, founder of Ryanair.
