On the 20th of May, 2019, students of the TOPAZ Management Simulation course were welcomed at the headquarters of PwC Greece in Athens by Marios Psaltis, CEO and Ilias Kapoutsis, instructor of the course, for the announcement of the winning team. Students of the TOPAZ Management Simulation course formulated teams of 3-4 students and worked on the Global Management Challenge software, as business owners of a virtual company, with the objective of getting the highest Investment Performance. Throughout the simulation course each team had to design and implement the company’s strategy for 5 consecutive business quarters and decide upon 66 operating issues. Students really enjoyed being in the driver’s seat of their own virtual companies, taking decisions and adjusting their strategy accordingly.
This year, the Fortuna team, which consisted of Constantina Batsari, Alexandra Jones-Apatzidou, Katerina Iatropoulou and Nikos Reppas, was the winning team by reaching the highest share price at 1.665.
