Program

Content

Broaden your horizon and test your financial, accounting and strategic skills with our top-of-the-line business game.

The business game Str@tvision gives you the opportunity to learn how an enterprise operates in a fast-paced and risk-free simulation environment. You form management teams of identical fictitious companies with your colleagues.

Each team takes decisions concerning general management, production, marketing, finance, etc. These decisions have to be made in three consecutive game rounds.

Team decisions

Each team makes these decisions on a number of operational and financial parameters, such as:

  • the pricing per product model,
  • the recruitment of personnel,
  • the number of production units and the production quantity,
  • the promotional efforts,
  • the number of stores, distribution points and online sales,
  • the need for financing.

The consecutive game rounds reflect the course of one operational year. In these 'years' you will always be confronted with changing market situations.
