Three Morningside College business students placed 78th out of more than 4,800 teams in a worldwide online business simulation.
The online simulation, called the Business Strategy Game, is the most widely played computer simulation in the strategic management market and is used in business schools all across the world. Each company in the simulated industry is managed by a team of students who must match their strategic wits against the other teams.
The Business Strategy Game is the centerpiece for a business policy course at Morningside College.
