The business game MARGA

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.

Use of the business simulation

The business simulation is used within talent management and change management programs by both national and international companies and universities. The target groups are young professionals and trainees, experts and managers as well as executives.

According to your strategic orientation of your training course you can define a focus on one of the following topics: General Management, Financial Basics, Financial Management, Service Management, Strategic Management, Technology Management, Team & Leadership, Strategy Execution as well as Business Transformation.

We will implement this focus within the business simulation itself as well as within additional offers as in-class key speeches or webinars.
