Benefit from a dynamic business game format: Blended Learning is a combination of compact seminar and online competition.

MARGA Management Training: blended learning business game

The MARGA Management Training with the mix of diverse methods and media

We offer the "MARGA Management Training" as an open game-based blended learning seminar, in which participants train entrepreneurial acting and thinking over a period of six weeks. The program uses the dynamism of the management simulation and combines the advantages of an in-class seminar with the strengths of an online competition.

Its key advantages can be found in its combination of diverse learning formats and media. In both one-day in-class modules, current management knowledge is dealt with and developed within the context of personal dialogue. The participants consolidate these interrelationships in an exciting management competition and apply them in specific management decision-making situations - interlocked in terms of their content through the Online Course "Financial Basics", webinars, individual online debriefing sessions as well as tutorials.

Learning by Doing

Divided into small teams, the participants take over the management of a virtual global player. They are responsible for strategic planning and all operational areas of the company (marketing, sales, production, human resources, logistics, finance etc.). The participans make decisions in a team, analyze results and compete directly against other teams. 

Taking into account current political and economic factors they develop a competitive strategy. They then implement it in operational decisions in their virtual company. The ultimate goal is to increase the value of the company. 

Active support of the teams

The MARGA management team actively supports the teams via web-conference, e-mail and telephone during the self-directed learning phase. This phase extends over a two months 'on-the-job' period and through the continual application of the management instruments, creates incomparably sustainable learning success.
