Chicago, IL, November 19th 2015: Capsim celebrates another successful Capsim Challenge. This competition pits over 2,000 students from business schools around the world. The qualifying rounds were from Oct. 1st to Oct. 30th, while the finals were held in lightning round fashion over two days, Nov. 13th and 14th.
The finalists compete in one of the most difficult environments our simulation experts can dream up. There are recessions and other obstacles that make the markets very hard to predict. Congratulations to all our participants, as our Challenge Coordinator, Monika Murzydlo said “Those students who take the extra time to compete in the Capsim Challenge really show they have the commitment needed to succeed in the business world.”
Without further ado, here are the winners:
- Our $400 Capstone winner is Warrapat Korkerd, who is taking a class from Professor Bhakorn at Mahidol University in Thailand
- Our $400 Foundation winning team is Oliver Coates III and Christopher Scrip under Professor MacKenzie at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.
Capsim awarded four $25 social media prizes that were selected randomly from tweets and Facebook posts.
