MARGA - Pioneers of business management simulations


MARGA - Pioneers of business management simulations

MARGA goes back to the year 1971. Today´s European School of Management and Technology was the first service provider to develop the MARGA business management simulation, and implemented it in its management programs. In the same year, together with the Handelsblatt publishing group, the MARGA Open Online Competition was carried out which now starts each year in November.

Since then, MARGA has gone through many content-based, didactic and technological development steps, most recently under the umbrella of the ESMT European School of Management and Technology. The basic idea that existed at the beginning of the simulation has remained. Offering a business management simulation as a didactic method through which the new generation of young managers and high-potential employees learn and train in the area of business contexts and management methods 'on-the-job'.

In the year 2007, MARGA was transferred to the newly established MARGA Business Simulations GmbH. The company was located at the 'Schloss Gracht' castle, the campus of ESMT Berlin near Cologne. In November 2018, MARGA Business Simualations moved to the Office Center in Erftstadt-Lechenich.
