Dürr Group wins the MARGA Online Competition 2021/2022

On May 19 and 20, 2022, it was that time again: The best four teams of the MARGA Online Competition met directly for the first time in the grand online final to compete in the decisive game period. In an exciting competition, Team 12 from Dürr Group was finally able to prevail over the strong competition and thus secure the 1st place in the MARGA Online Competition 2021/2022.

Only the best four from a total of 36 teams from various national and international companies had already made it to the final round in April after several months of intensive online training:

Team 10: Westlake Vinnolit GmbH & Co. KG

Team 12: Dürr Group

Team 13: Dürr Group

Team 27: SCHOTT AG

The four finalist teams were confronted with a new, challenging initial situation in the final round. They now had to prove once again the management know-how they had learned and their ability to work in a team. The first four decision periods were made online as usual during the last weeks.

On May 19, these four teams then met virtually for the first time and presented their companies and teams. In a tight timeline, the decisions for the final and decisive period then had to be made in virtual teamwork. All teams gave their very best once again and all performed strongly.

At the festive conclusion of the competition on May 20, 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 team members even participated from countries like Brazil and Czech Republic, so there was a live broadcast around the globe.

First, the four finalist teams answered questions from MARGA and the competing teams at the so-called “Shareholders’ Meeting.” They presented their strategies and reported on successes and failures during the competition. Finally, the results of the last period and thus the winning team were announced.

Team 12 entered the final round as group leader with a solid lead of 85 million Euro. However, after a strong fightback by the other teams in the final period, things got really thrilling once again.

In the end, Team 12 from Dürr Group prevailed over its strong competitors with a lead of 54 million Euro and positioned itself on the top step of the podium.

Finally, a joint toast was made and the win was celebrated. After all, MARGA is a very special learning experience that makes all participants winners.
