Harvard Business Cases, Modules, & Core Curriculum Articles
To protect its revenue, Harvard requires each person buys a license for any Case, Module, or Curriculum Article they want to read, so the UCI Libraries are prohibited from purchasing and sharing these materials.  You must buy your own copy of these materials, or use course packets (if available).

  • The Journals and News tabs link to the Harvard Business Review Magazine; users may freely access magazine articles.  


Video case studies tell a real story in video from a first-person point of view and feature many well-known companies, such as:  Pinterest, Target, Airbnb, Facebook, Netflix, Google, HomeDepot, Capital One, and Salesforce.  Topics include Business Transformation, Machine Learning, Microservices, Mobile, Technical Leadership, and User Research.
