Business simulation

As a result of ability test, 100 top students will join a business simulation where they will have a chance to test their analytical ability and decision making skills in a risk free milieu, reflect on the results obtained in each simulation run and improve for the next run. The experiential learning methodology adopted in this simulation includes in-person feedback sessions carried out by the instructors at the end of each run. This allows participants to have immediate feedback on their decisions and prepare for the next simulation round. The simulation will be executed in rounds that mimic fiscal years. Participants will be divided into 20 teams with 5 participants in each and will manage their virtual companies that compete with each other in the simulated market. 4 rounds of simulation will be completed over a week. Two expert consultants will execute de-briefing sessions at the end of each round to ensure all participants reflect on their learnings and improve their thinking and strategies for the next round.
