Students place second in global business simulation

A team of seniors (L-R) Holly Craft, Ryan Arnett, and Ashley Foster finished second in a global, internet-based business simulation.

A group of three Trevecca Nazarene University business students recently placed second in a global internet-based business simulation.

Senior business administration students in James Agee’s business policies class participated in The Business Strategy Game, published by McGraw-Hill. Trevecca's nine teams of three students each competed against each other as well as students from all over the globe and schools like Penn State, University of Alabama, Clemson, NC State, and James Madison.

The team Galoshes N More, consisting of seniors Ryan Arnett, Holly Craft, and Ashley Foster finished second out off all of the teams competing.

“I don’t know exactly how many total teams were competing, but it was easily several hundred and possibly into the thousands,” Agee said.

The Business Strategy Game is the most widely played computer simulation in strategic management training. The game is used in business schools across the world. The game simulates a global market in which students must manage their product of athletic footwear.
