Main Round

After the online kick-offs and a test round with two decision-making periods, the teams are now in the main round with a total of five simulation periods.

The objective is to increase the accumulated MARGA Value Added (MVA) of your company over all periods of the main round. The three best group winners, i.e. the three group winners with the highest accumulated MVA, will be published here.

First run during summer semester 2020

Special times require special measures. For the summer semester 2020, universities and business schools had to switch the teaching program to digital learning methods at short notice. That is why MARGA Business Simulations is launching the new Online Business Competition for students from colleges, universities and business schools from all over the world for the first time this year.

In teams of up to six participants, students who are enrolled in different economic and business-related courses compete against each other in a dynamic and realistic competition. Here, students deepen business relationships under current economic conditions and learn about entrepreneurial thinking and acting.

As a team, they take over the Board of their own virtual company. They develop strategies and implement them operationally in the areas of marketing & sales, human resources, production, logistics and finance.

Within 8 weeks, 7 decision-making periods are planned and 6 webinars are taking place. The students control the entire entrepreneurial process themselves, from the objective to the corporate strategy to sustainable success. The MARGA tutors are in close contact with the teams and closely accompany the competition.

The target is to increase the company's value based on Economic Value Added (EVA). The team with the highest company value wins the competition.

Infact, looking back at the year 2020, the most telling educational piece for me was MARGA Business Simulation. Virtually everything I have learnt over the years in accounting and economics was practicalised and called into action. I learnt a lot and enjoyed every bit of it during the competition. And for that I say thank you very much for such a programme.
