Business Strategy Game Competition

General Information

On March 30th, 2019, The Hang Seng University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong Shue Yan University, and Chu Hai College of Higher Education, Hong Kong will host a Business Simulation Game Competition for undergraduate students at the campus of The Hang Seng University of Hong Kong. All undergraduate students in Hong Kong are invited!

The Game Competition is the highlight of our pioneering project, “A Visual Platform for the Design, Implementation, and Analysis of Collaborative Business Simulation Games”, aiming to develop a visual platform for flexibly customized collaborative business simulation games that helps enhance learning experience and teaching quality. The business simulation game for the competition is designed based on the components provided by the platform, which aims to test students’ management skills on different business functions. Game story of the competition is based on the coffee industry, where students are challenged to select the right market, the resources spent on research and development, the best available supplier, the marketing strategy, etc. All undergraduate students in Hong Kong are eligible to form a team of three to four to register for the competition.

Unanticipated in-game events could happen and the decisions made by other teams could affect your results; in response, your team may need to adjust the strategy deployment each round. This business simulation game competition provides you a good opportunity to work as a team, and challenge against other students simultaneous in a virtual business environment. We sincerely invite you to join the competition.
