International Business Week
The main target of this week is to let students work in mixed international groups on a subject that interests them, which makes them think and communicate in another language. In this way students with as main subject Business Management broaden their practical knowledge of languages and culture. The more nationalities involved, the more interesting it will be for the students.
Students participate in the business game Stratvision. The students are split up into different start-ups (groups). A set of 4 groups competes with each other and forms a market. Each enterprise has to define its objectives and make decisions to reach those objectives. At certain regular points in time the coaches give the students an update of the economic situation so that the students are able to make decisions for the following fiscal year. These decisions are on a financial and accounting as well as on a commercial level. Guest lectures and a company visit will provide the students with tips and tricks to start and direct their start-ups.
At the end of the week the groups present their results within their market.
