Working in teams, students take the role of directors of a company through the use of an interactive business game. As a member of a board of directors you are responsible for the running of a company competing against other student-run companies, requiring you to make key decisions after performing appropriate analyses of detailed information about your company and its environment. As a board of directors you are required to make decisions concerning staffing, raw material costs, quality and quantities, product prices and terms, marketing, research and development and financing. You will draw on the disciplines of financial accounting, management accounting, finance and management in general, and will use statistical and economic analyses as appropriate.
