St. Francis Students Excel in Global Business Simulation
Two Teams Place Among Top Performers
Two teams of students from the Business and Technology Department placed among the top performers in the Glo-Bus worldwide competitive simulation of the digital camera industry. The CMGI company, composed of Mustafa Aksoy, Renzo Proano, and Giuseppe Buscemi ranked 49th in overall score out of more than 1600 teams from over 90 colleges and universities The All Star Digital Company, composed of Ayla Cakirca, Jennifer Galia, and Chastity Rivera came in 99th place. These students were participating in the competition as part of the requirements of Dr. Vincent Lee’s Business Policies course, which is the capstone course for Business Management seniors.
The Glo-Bus simulation, run by McGraw Hill, allows students to practice their business skills playing the rolls of the senior decision makers of a global corporation in a competitive high technology industry. Each team manages their company for a virtual period of 10 years, and makes strategic and operational decisions on product design, manufacturing, marketing, and finance. Their decision effectiveness and performance is measured against that of other teams both here at St Francis, as well as teams at other schools in such key metrics as earnings per share, stock price appreciation, return on equity, credit rating, and industry image positioning.
