Harvard Business School uses case studies as a really profitable business – this university managed to sell over 11 million cases only in the course of last year, according to the recently published annual report. This is the solid foundation of the school’s publishing company, Harvard Business Publishing, which helped it reach a whopping revenue of $180 million.

As for Haas School of Business, directly competing with Harvard Business School for top students, it still finds these kinds of case sales numbers absolutely beyond the realm of possibility. It launched a series of cases only last month, and it has little chance of netting the business school more than $1 million this year, according to the Dean. The case collection has been launched in partnership with the Harvard Business Publishing.

Haas is using cases for promotion rather than profits

For Haas, this launch is not really about the bottom line. What it helps to do is to build a clearer identity around some of the expertise areas that the school is great in developing. Haas says that its cases will give lessons for reaching business success by means of unconventional management strategies. Apparently, by spreading the cases around the school hopes to snag the brightest future MBAs in the area, or, better yet, in the whole country.

More on Haas’s case series

The series of cases includes stories about Netflix (NFLX), Zoosk and Genentech (DNA). It also has a case about how Maersk Group got over 1 million Facebook fans by investing less than $100,000 in their social media campaign.

Unconventional? Not really.

Unrealistic? We’re afraid so.

In the Asian culture, higher education has long been given a central role, but in the past decade or so it has changed its course. Many local community colleges in Vietnam, for example, follow the American patterns.

College education development

Since 2000, 15 new Vietnamese schools have been founded. For the most part, the basic education models in these colleges remind of the similar community colleges in the USA. The main concept was created in 1901, and the first school to present it was Joliet (Ill.) Junior College.

And just like President Obama believes that community colleges will prepare the American workforce for the job market of the XXI century, Trung and his counterparts in Vietnam have trust in their fledgling schools. The Vietnamese leaders see the potential in them to play a crucial role in growing the local expertise. If everything goes according to their plan, Vietnam with its improved workforce will have joined the ranks of industrialized nations by 2020.

What about colleges in other countries?

Many other countries, too, are trying to tap into US community college expertise, and they put tremendous efforts into diversifying their higher education systems. For instance, not long ago the Chinese Ministry of Education sent its delegation to the American convention of community colleges in Phoenix, with plans to send a second group there for another visit soon.

The Republic of Georgia has recently opened the first of several colleges planned, with assistance from similar community colleges in Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin. On top of this, Qatar’s government is also working with two US college presidents to establish the practice of offering associate degrees to students.

  • University of Tokyo

The University of Tokyo, for sure, is unbeatable in terms of reputation. It is the number one place in Asia for getting a degree in medicine. In its region, it also leads in several other major subject areas. The only category that it isn’t number one in is management and social sciences – for this sort of education, it is better to choose the next university in this list.

  • National University of Singapore

As for NUS, it often makes headlines and climbs to the top of the Asian QS University Rankings. It has an extremely solid reputation across the entire subject spectrum, and appears right at the top of the tables in most of the disciplines covered by the official rankings by subject.

  • Kyoto University

This one reflects the impeccable reputation of Japanese universities in general, particularly in the life sciences field. Kyoto University is the best for studying biological sciences, pharmacy, agriculture, and medicine.

  • University of Hong Kong

In Hong Kong, HKU is the leading academic representative in the field of medicine. It has an excellent faculty for life sciences disciplines, but the medical field is the most developed one there.

Many international students want to go to university in Australia, the UK, US, or other Western countries. However, they do not know there are other awesome study opportunities to pursue in different parts of the world. For instance, in Asia there are also some renowned colleges and universities in which to receive top-notch education. And to receive the funds to go there, you can find scholarships for foreign students. These are provided by the governments of Asian countries.

A large number of scholarship opportunities are created by the Japanese government for students from abroad who intend to get their higher education at a local university. Both undergraduates and researchers can take advantage of them. The best thing about the Japanese Government Scholarships is that they cover travelling costs, school fees, and allowance.
