Business Simulation

The students independently create tools for the integrated business planning (in MS-Excel, for example). The management decision-making ensues in small groups (max. 5 participants), the task distribution within the team and the coordination of interdependent decisions develops both the ability to work in a team and communication skills, while the actions taken at a competitive level also develop the ability for entrepreneurial thinking and operating.
