Books

Students in the elective course CCBS write a management book each semester. We select countries and research, review literature and interview native professionals around the world. They are coached in the research and English writing part, and they are supplied with excellent sources. At the end of the semester the students will have co-written their own book, and are listed in the ISBN registers on their very own name. We also upload the file to google.books. The books are available at the bookstores from HvA.

Below is an overview of some selected titles we have published so far:
