Harvard Business Cases, Modules, & Core Curriculum Articles

To protect its revenue, Harvard requires that each person buys a license for any CaseModule, 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 News tab links to the Harvard Business Review Magazine. Users may freely access magazine articles.
