Description

The International Collegiate Business Strategy Competition is a challenging competitive event that serves universities, their students and the business community.

Universities benefit by participating in a program that encourages student engagement, builds school pride and provides their best students with an experience that can jump-start their careers with a resume-building activity.

Who's Eligible

The International Collegiate Business Strategy Competition utilizes the Business Policy Game, an international simulation, designed to enable advanced business students to integrate and apply the theories of their business courses.  Students become strategic managers of simulated companies competing against other business students acting as managers of their own companies. The simulated environment incorporates the economies of two countries, and requires consideration of global and domestic strategy.  Student teams are organized into undergraduate and MBA “worlds,” with four to six teams in each “world” competing directly against each other. Trophies are awarded separately in each “world.”  The Competition extends over five simulated years, one calendar quarter at a time.
