Student teams from participating institutions of the Master of Engineering Management Program Consortium (MEMPC) including Cornell, Dartmouth, Duke, Purdue, USC, and Northwestern are gearing up for the 5th annual MEMPC PriSim Business War Games Competition. During the web‐based simulation competition, participants will run a domestic automobile company, making decisions as a team, and competing against the other participating MEMPC schools. The simulation will run over multiple iterations, replicating a multi‐year span of time.
Teams “compete in a head-to-head battle for market share and profit. Along the way, the students participating will improve their business acumen and their strategy, finance, and leadership skills,” says David Semb, a partner at PriSim Business War Games Inc. and an adjunct professor for the MEM program at Northwestern. The competition is an opportunity to practice business decision-making and to broaden networks no matter who wins or loses. “Business simulations are one of the best ways out there to learn about business and finance. PriSim is proud to be part of the MEMPC competition for the 5th year.”
The competition will be held January 30th through March 2nd and winners will receive a Nexus tablet. For more details, please view the 2017 competition overview. We also invite you to learn more about PriSim’s important role in supporting this competition.
