Practical information

Simulation organization

Each simulation market consists of a number of teams, with around 6 members in each. All teams are starting from the same position, with similar market shares and profits. Equally, teams will face the same market conditions during the simulation. You will compete against other teams in their own market, not against a computer. The decisions of each team influence the other teams’ results and the market development overall.

Participant tasks

Learners plan and implement global demand-supply strategy for three markets and two production areas, including in-house and contract manufacturing network. Research and development for new technologies and product features forms the backbone for their long-term strategy and product life-cycle management. They will manage international taxation through transfer pricing and control liquidity and capital structure. Optionally, they can also manage corporate social responsibility and human resources for research and  development.
