Young Professionals

Young professionals and trainees have a profound vocational education and start highly motivated in their professional life. The participation in a business simulation builds a bridge between the theoretical knowledge and the practical use in professional life. The participants of the MARGA business simulation experience management live: Thereby they deepen management knowledge and perceive the consequences of their own management decisions in a realistic environment. This enables a successful entry of the young professionals into their professional lives.
