The Case Centre’s list of bestselling case authors for the 2022/23 academic year has been revealed. 

The 2022/23 list is abuzz with change as ten new faces make their entrance. Among these, the spotlight shines particularly bright on Arpita Agnihotri of Penn State Harrisburg and Saurabh Bhattacharya of Newcastle University Business School, who are the highest new entries at number 12 (joint).

At the top of the list, we find the late, great Debapratim Purkayastha of ICFAI Business School (IBS), holding firm to first place for an astounding eighth consecutive year. His enduring influence remains an inspiration to all.

Well-established case schools feature prominently, with eight authors from Harvard Business School, six from INSEAD and five from the International Institute for Management Development (IMD).

But it’s not just about the heavyweights; the 2022/23 list also welcomes six schools who are making their debut: ESMT Berlin, HKU Business School, Hult EF Corporate Education, Imperial College Business School, Newcastle University Business School, and Penn State Harrisburg.
