We are looking for an expert in case writing and case project management. HEC Paris in Qatar is a branch campus of HEC Paris and operates under the same standards of excellence. Our campus was established in 2010 through an agreement between HEC Paris and Qatar Foundation, and our mission is to serve the needs of businesses established in the region through the development of Executive Education and world class relevant research, to help Qatar in its transition to a knowledge economy, and to do so with the excellence that is expected from HEC. We are a world class school as acknowledged by the Financial Times, which ranked us as the top (#1) school in Europe and also ranked our Executive MBA #1 worldwide in 2019. We are consistently ranked among the world´s top schools in a wide variety of rankings and using a large number of metrics, including student satisfaction, goals achieved, and salary increase after our programs.

The role

The role has two parts. On one hand, the successful applicant is expected to write cases on an ongoing basis. On the other hand, the candidate will lead the process of building a top-quality repository of case studies with a focus on Qatar and the GCC. After gaining an in-depth understanding of our programs, the candidate will drive the strategy for publishing and marketing of cases, strategic collaborations, quality control, training of future case writers and jointly enhancing the innovative use of cases (e.g., via interactive, web-based versions).

The candidate profile

In order to further grow the number of local case studies used in our custom, open and degree programs, we are looking for an experienced case writer. The ideal candidate has compiled a number of innovative case studies including teaching notes or other supporting material and successfully submitted them to international case clearing houses, case competitions or case journals. He or she is able to work effectively with a variety of faculty members, at times rather independently, can support or lead parts or entire case writing projects from negotiating access to companies, conducting interviews, write case drafts together with faculty members, finalize and edit drafts, and work towards case releases. Experience in editing of case books is a plus. Ideally, the applicant previously earned an MBA (or similar degree) and can write cases in different business disciplines. The language of work and case publishing is English. Strong English skills are a must. The present announcement aims at growing local staff on HEC Paris’ campus in Qatar.
