The RSM Case Development Centre (CDC) is looking for a student assistant (8 hours a week) to join our energetic team as of 1st September 2023 to support CDC operations and office management.

The RSM CDC is a platform for the development, innovation and dissemination of management education material, in particular teaching cases. CDC connects with interested parties and sets up collaborations for researching, writing, teaching and using management cases beyond their traditional business school environment. Cases developed by CDC have won major international case writing competition prizes and some are among the most popular management teaching material used by business schools worldwide. The cases are released with leading international case clearing houses, such as Ivey Publishing and The Case Centre. Some cases are adapted to popular articles published in media outlets like the Financial Times and Harvard Business Review.

Next to case development and writing activities, the RSM CDC provides workshops (such as case writing workshops), participates in events (such as the RSM leadership summit), and works on international projects. For more information on the Case Development Centre, please visit
