Online Competition:
Benefits of our partners for all teams

The open MARGA Competition started already in 1971 as initiative with the pubishing group ‘Handelsblatt’ and ESMT Berlin, today´s number eight business school in the world.

Both partners stand for academic contents and economic topicality.

Thus, we are keeping up with the times: The participants of the business simulation learn current management contents within a dynamic market environment close to reality.

Our two partners offer attractive advantages to all participants of the MARGA Online Competition:

For the direct reference to reality: Free subscription for the Handelsblatt ePaper

Das Logo von Handelsblatt

Our simulation scenario is based on the real and current economic happenings. Like this the analogy between the global markets of both the real economy and the simulated world become directly tangible.

For the first time, the publishing group ‘Handelsblatt’ offers a free subscription for the ‘Handelsblatt’ ePaper to all participants of the MARGA Online Competition 2017/2018 during the whole course of the competition.

Via the MARGA software, all participants get access to each edition of the ‘Handelsblatt’ ePaper.

Erzähle mir und ich vergesse, zeige mir und ich erinnere, lass mich tun und ich verstehe“

Dieser dem chinesischen Philosophen Konfuzius zugerechnete Satz bringt aus meiner Sicht perfekt zum Ausdruck, was MARGA auszeichnet und von anderen Fortbildungsprogrammen abhebt. Das aktive Lernen an einem „lebenden“, wenn auch simulierten Unternehmen verankert das erlernte Wissen nachhaltig in den Köpfen der Teilnehmer.”
