What is the Global Management Challenge?

The Global Management Challenge is the world’s largest strategy and management simulation competition, operating since the late 1970s and currently in over 40 countries. It consists of a strategy and management online-based simulation in which each team runs a virtual company, with the objective of finishing with the highest company share price on the simulated stock exchange. Teams of 3 to 5 persons are formed and compete by taking decisions in the areas of marketing, sales, production, human resources, finance, research and development, knowing that the other competing teams are operating in the same market and selling the same products.

For more information, as well as deadlines for registration, please visit http://www.usamanagementchallenge.com/

"Global Management Challenge did not only expose us to practical knowledge in finance, human resource, operations management and marketing, it also revealed in us our true behavior in stressful moments and indirectly taught us qualities we hardly understood like tolerance, teamwork and having an eye for detail. It is closest to the ultimate test for a well rounded manager."
-Kwabena Ankomah-Kwakye, MBA Candidate (Team Bizessence, Global Management Challenge alumnus)
