The Management Simulation Capstone course has students perform the role of an executive in a simulated competitive industry over numerous fiscal years in order to apply and demonstrate the academic and professional development skills acquired in other core courses. The course expects that students will develop and implement a strategic management process in a complex competitive environment using a range of business tools and skills to compete successfully against other talented management teams. This is accomplished through interpreting/analyzing market data and diagnosing the factors affecting a company’s prior-year performance; evaluating the strategies and actions of rival companies; identifying strategic actions with good prospects for improving company performance; and identifying promising ways to build competitive advantage, improve operating efficiency, and cope effectively with fluctuating exchange rates, tariffs, and other global market factors. Furthermore, this capstone course provides a platform for professional development as students develop their strengths, give and receive feedback, and communicate effectively to influence a wide range of stakeholders.
