MARGA for Students starts into the next round!
In the summer semester 2021, numerous teams from international business schools, colleges and universities competed once again against each other in the Online Competition MARGA for Students. Over a period of 8 weeks, the 130 participants managed their own virtual company, developed strategies and implemented these operationally with the goal to create the highest company value. In the final event the winners of the summer edition of MARGA for Students 2021 have been determined. After an exciting neck-and-neck race the team of RISEBA University of Applied Sciences from Latvia prevailed against its strong competitors.
Within 7 decision-making periods the participants of MARGA for Students develop, produce, position and sell own products on the market. At the end, the team with the highest company value wins the competition. The students control the entire entrepreneurial process themselves, from the objective to developing a corporate strategy all the way to achieving sustainable success. Live webinars like “Implement strategies“and “Use cost accounting“ and the Online Course “ Financial Basics “ create an important theoretical basis and refer to the content of the business simulation. The gained knowledge can be transferred directly to the competition and supports the decision-making process within the business simulation. Furthermore, the MARGA Team supports via phone or email in case of any questions regarding content or organization. By closely linking well-founded management knowledge with practical implementation in the business simulation, teamwork and individual support, MARGA creates an exceptionally sustainable learning environment and a very special learning experience with fun factor.
Since MARGA for Students is carried out completely online and is offered in German as well as in English the participation can take place from anywhere and across countries. This gives the competition a strong international character and makes it much more exciting with its around 130 participants this year, who are enrolled in different economic and business-related courses, from universities all over the world.
After an exciting and eventful competition the winner team of the summer semester 2021 has been announced in the grand final event on July 02, 2021!
