Description

Based on the successful use of business simulation games in UPM Schools, it´s proposed to create a virtual competition with the participation of EELISA universities. Students form teams of 3-5 members, and each team is placed in a group of 5-8 teams. The teams are then given a virtual company, initially identical to every other company in the competition. Each team then develops their company by making a series of decisions relating to every aspect of the business, such as how many machines to buy, or how much to spend on advertising. In each round, five sets of decisions are taken, corresponding to five quarters.
These decisions – made on a Decision Sheet – are run through sophisticated business simulation software, which generates in-depth Management Reports, showing the consequences of the decisions. The aim is to finish the game with the highest share-price on the virtual stock exchange.
Assessment: On the one hand, it’s linked to the results obtained in the virtual market, and on the other hand, it’s connected with the analysis of the business situation, the competitive dynamics and the environment.
Deliverables: Teams should deliver several reports (Decision Sheets) during the simulation. Besides they should record a 5 minute video explaining the strategy followed at the end of the activity.
