The Australian Business Week (ABW) Business Simulation Competition offers students opportunities to apply their economics learning and management skills in a virtual business environment.
Participants in this year’s event competed online for four weeks (in Term 3) by running a full-service hotel in a highly competitive marketplace. To achieve the highest share price, participants had to make a wide range of decisions relating to revenue, marketing, acquisitions and customer service while balancing the need to attract business, maintain high standards and fulfill corporate social responsibilities in a changing economic environment.
Business simulation programs, such as the ABW Competition and the ECOMAN program, have greatly enriched students’ learning experience and developed their twenty-first century skills.
