Bring your own device (BYOD) refers to the use of privately owned mobile devices for employment-related activities. This paper presents a real-world case study resource for teaching based on an actual consulting engagement of a global accounting firm to bring practical experience with managing BYOD into the classroom. Students, working in teams, assumed the role of consultants and defended their recommendations involving the recognition of benefits and challenges in managing BYOD in an organization. Professionals from five global accounting evaluated the use of the case study in an undergraduate case competition and found that, in general, the students agreed that they had a positive learning experience.
