The business simulation

In the MARGA business simulation the participants run their own company with all business areas as a team. Thereby they compete with other virtual companies.
The challenge of the business simulation is to develop a corporate strategy and to implement this in operative decisions for the areas marketing, production and finance. The business simulation MARGA not only shows the own company but also covers a complex market environment which forces the teams to continuously adapt to the changing economic and political conditions. Period by period the participants make their own management decisions and immediately experience their consequences. Thus the business simulation MARGA provides a long lasting learning success.
