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.
