IML Students “Going Global” with TOPSIM®

On May 8 and 9, the International Management and Leadership 2015 cohort participated in the “Going Global” business simulation  organized by Lauder Business School and TOPSIM®. The “Going Global” game can be described as a flight simulator for managers based on the “learning business by doing business” principle. The challenge for students is to make decisions as a team, i.e. to decide on the type, scope and direction of their company expansion on its way to become a global player.

TOPSIM® instructor Mr. Thomas Weber, MA, who has been working at Tata Interactive Systems for the past seven years as Sales Manager of the Products International division, guided the students through these two exciting days. Addressing the students, he explained that the company with the highest share price will win and that the strategy taken will determine company’s success. Divided into 4 teams, students competed in the following regions: Europe, Asia 1, Asia 2, North America, South America and Africa. The overall experience and the feedback from students was extremely positive. They enjoyed the competitive atmosphere in the classroom, the possibility to immerse themselves in the business reality, as well as the practical approach to decision making.

AMA

Mr. Weber talking about his experience at Lauder Business School: “I was happy to work with LBS students. It was a very interesting experience; one could see teams developing different approaches while entering different markets, which is not always the case. The challenges for students were to act under time constraints and to be able to interpret the answers that the system gave them.
