Established in 1984, The World Association for Case Method Research & Application (WACRA®) has members in 65 countries. Members include scholars from leading academic institutions, administrators, policy-makers, professionals, government officials and advanced students.

Mission Statement
WACRA® - The World Association for Case Method Research & Application is the premier global community of scholars, professionals, and policy-makers for the advancement of the case method in research, teaching, training, and planning. The WACRA mission is to

  • encourage research using the case method; to coordinate case writing and case application activities; and to
  • encourage cooperation between the public sector, the business community, and other case-oriented professions.
  • Its initial focus has broadened to include simulations and other interactive learning and teaching methods as corollaries to cases.
  • WACRA and ACT activities transcend the boundaries of single academic disciplines and organizational functions to enhance and promote communication across disciplines and cultures.
