In partnership with the over 200 Jesuit colleges and universities globally, the Global Jesuit Case Series (GJCS) aims to produce and disseminate a series of business and social policy cases that embody the values of social justice, human dignity, moral leadership, and sustainability while also fostering organizational innovation and profitability. The aim is that the GJCS will act as an invaluable resource for faculty, students, and alumni.

The GJCS seeks to contribute to promoting leadership by enabling individuals around the globe to access cases rooted in Jesuit tradition. It also seeks to encourage collaboration and connect members across the global Jesuit network, taking advantage of the vast reach of Jesuit universities, institutions, students and alumni.

The Global Jesuit Case Series, together with the International Association of Jesuit Business Schools, Colleagues in Jesuit Business Education, the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities and more than twenty individual institutions have developed the platform IgnitEd (Ignite + Education) to contribute to the global network of Jesuit institutions. The goal is to work toward common mission and values through a shared space to house programs and initiatives, conferences and professional development opportunities as well as curriculum resources for use in the classroom.  Examples of curriculum topics that can be found on the platform include:  strategy, human resources, technology & innovation, organizational behavior, finance & accounting, marketing & sales, ethics & social justice.

Global Jesuit Case Series (GJCS) together with the Society for Case Research (SCR) at Rockhurst University are currently inviting submissions to the first ever co-published edition of the Journal of Case Studies.

Cases submitted should seek to incorporate any of the following themes: Jesuit values, interdisciplinarity, triple bottom line, reflection on action, stakeholder approach to business decisions, sustainability and/or ethics.
