This June, two teams from Saint Mary’s Professional MBA program placed in the top 50 in the Global Business Simulation Strategy Game (GLO-BUS), beating out schools from across world. One team scored 107.5 points (out of a possible 110) and tied for 34th in overall game-to-date score during the week of June 10-16. That same week, a second team scored 108.5 points and tied for 21st overall.
GLO-BUS is an online business simulation game where teams of students run a digital camera company in head-to-head competition against other classes from across the world. Players are evaluated in five categories: earnings per share, credit rating, stock price, return on equity, and image rating. The business strategy simulation mirrors competitive, real-world conditions, and rewards players for using logic to make sound business decisions. The two teams that placed in the global top 50 were from the School of Economics and Business Administrations Global Business Strategy course taught by Professor Michael Hadani.
