The MARGA offer includes open programs in which individuals or teams from different companies can participate, as well as individual inhouse solutions.

Together we will develop an inhouse concept that draws on proven program processes and is tailored to your needs.

You can choose the format, time frame and focus of the content. Would you like to enable individual employees to take part in our management training courses? Then send them to one of our open programs, which take place on fixed dates at least once a year and, depending on the format, as an online, face-to-face or blended learning seminar.

Through the MARGA Business Simulation, I understood the connection between marketing, production and finance and how the decisions in each area affect the value of the company. Great Management Training – The online game was a lot of fun especially thanks to the competent and dedicated MARGA coaches. I would recommend the training to anyone who wants to deepen their knowledge in business management and financial ratios.

It was a professional pleasure having participated in MARGA! Not only because of the managerial knowledge I have refreshed and put into practice, but also because of the colleagues I had the opportunity to team up with. Apart from that, recognition must be given to the MARGA support team’s members, who were always happy to help out each and every team in the competition. If I had the chance to participate again, I wouldn’t hesitate to say yes!

The MARGA board game was used as part of our first-time onboarding program for our new commercial trainees. The seminar conveyed the functionality of a company and especially the fundamentals of accounting in a comprehensive  and practical manner and thus made an important contribution to the new training program of our management trainees. The feedback from the participants concerning the onboarding program as well as the market-leading business simulation MARGA was thoroughly positive.

Where else can high potentials and young professionals practice to act as real entrepreneurs? We play MARGA with mixed teams in which we combine current with former trainees. Like this we achieve interdisciplinary and self organized groups. It’s amazing how much our teams learned about strategy, business management and market development in such a short time. They will certainly benefit from this experience during their day-to-day business. Above all, they both learned and laughed a lot – what a great combination.
