Infrastructure Credit Guarantee Company (InfraCredit) has joined an elite circle of African companies by having a case study about its mission and operations published by the Harvard Business School. It would now form part of the curriculum at the renowned business school. The case which is titled, ‘Infrastructure in Nigeria: Unlocking Pension Fund Investments,’ was co-authored by John D. Macomber, a senior lecturer in finance, and Pippa Tubman Armerding, director at Africa Research Office. Both are senior faculty at HBS. Each year, HBS publishes about 350 cases. Only a tiny fraction is devoted to organisations outside North America, Europe and Asia.
Often characterised as the defining pedagogical experience of an HBS education, the case method has been described as ‘a profound educational innovation that presents the greatest challenges confronting leading companies, non-profits, and government organisations and places the student in the role of the decision-maker.’ culled from THIS DAY
