Online Live Final on October 29 and 30, 2020

The four finalist teams had already been determined in April. Thanks to efficient teamwork and a clever corporate strategy, they qualified for the final round of the MARGA Online Competition 2019/2020.

In the past few months, the teams carried out the first five decision periods of this last round online as usual. All four teams have created great articles, quotes, photos and videos for us to introduce themselves here (see below).

Quite different from usual, this year´s final did not take place in a festive face-to-face event, but – due to the pandemic – during an online event spread over two afternoons. Here the members of all four teams met each other virtually for the first time and gave an impressive presentation of their companies and teams. The decisions for the last and decisive period were then made in virtual teamwork within a tight time frame.

At the festive conclusion of the competition on October 30th, all employees of MARGA Business Simulations and the four finalist teams, representatives of the partner companies ESMT Berlin and the Handelsblatt Media Group as well as guests of honor from the respective companies came to support and encourage their teams. Some of the team members participated from Asia and the USA and there was a live broadcast around the globe to bring the successful competition together.

In the end, the team of Vinnolit prevailed against its strong competitors and positioned itself on the upper step of the winners’ podium. Congratulations!

Vinnolit (Team 6)                           357 Mio. € MARGA Value Added
