  1. Ethiopia: Life at the base of the pyramid EC1-132-I-M

    This multimedia case tells the story of three groups of IE International MBA students who embarked on volunteer and research projects in Ethiopia. The first phase involved students staying and working in an NGO in Dilla whilst researching the three pillars of poverty: health nutrition and education. The second stage will look at the opportunities to do business in Ethiopia and the final phase plans to focus on attracting foreign investment to the country.

    The students' experiences are brought to life through images and video interviews. The conclusion section for the first phase considers whether NGOs can solve the problems in Ethiopia and possible solutions to the poverty trap.

  2. Providing quality health care under budget constrain … EC1-131-I

    Minister of Health Vicent Cremades finds himself faced with the daunting task of meeting rising health care needs with reduced funding from the government in Spain’s coastal autonomous community of Valencia. With a population of over five million with 17.5% aged over 65, hospitals were already at capacity and in need of improvements. Forced to find solutions, Cremades considers the private sector as a solution to provide part or all of the health care services needed. In this case, students will look into PPPs (Public-Private Partnerships) as a potential solution to this dilemma and decide which model would best suit the particular needs of the Valencian people.

  7. African Parks: An NGO in action saving Africa´s wild … EC1-127-I

    This case focuses on one of the thorniest problems of the 21st century, which is how to save wilderness and ecosystems at a time when the countries where they are concentrated in are immersed in a rapid development process and resource hunger around the world is stronger than ever. The NGO that is analyzed in the case, a South African-based NGO called African Parks, has developed an innovative approach to preserving natural spaces and species that combines private, charitable finance and efficient private management with local government cooperation. African Parks now spans seven countries in sub-Saharan Africa and sees its task as preserving the iconic ecosystems of the continent from destruction. The case poses critical questions about: how to solve the “tragedy of the commons” while promoting local development; how private managers can address social issues, especially through the PPP (Public-Private Partnership) formula; and how the unique traits of NGOs make them ideal partners to tackle problems that the free market does not easily solve, in cooperation with governments and the private sector.
