Cesim Global Business Challenge

The ACBSP International Council (Region 8) conference in Prague became a proud sponsor of the Global Business Challenge Simulation competition organized by Cesim Business Simulation Games!

What is it and how does it work?

  • the Cesim Global Business Challenge is an online simulation, which will run from October 28 to November 13
  • students have the opportunity to test and use their obtained knowledge and skills to compete in teams against students from other colleges/universities across the vast region which includes Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Oceania, and parts of Asia
  • students can participate from anywhere in the world (possible also at home)
  • teams can consist of 3 to 5 students per one group
  • students can choose consultant(s) from all departments of VŠEM/their college or university based on the area which should be discussed (it is possible to contact any VŠEM lecturer/teacher/mentor via mails or contact forms)
  • students have to provide their name, surname and email, and team name/affiliation in order to register the teams in the business simulation system - by filling in the template by October 17, 2019 (students of VŠEM submit via study forms/requests/questions, students of other institutions by sending to international@vsem.cz)
  • all participating teams will be eligible for the Prize for the best teams: 500 USD (winning team), 300 USD (second place), and 100 USD (third place)
  • winning teams will be announced during the conference but they do not have to be physically present
  • students participating in the simulation do not have to register for nor attend the conference in Prague (although they are welcome to do that)
  • the simulation may be a part of a for-credit course at your institution
  • more information available in the course syllabus
