Introduction Video


We enjoyed the journey. I think what we achieved was more than that, namely knowledge in running a business in the real world, strategic thinking, decision- making, financial analysis, competitor analysis, collaboration, and most of all, friendship with my teammates. I am pumped to get in touch with other team members as well. So much to learn!

It has been an invaluable experience that has allowed me to gain a wealth of knowledge and insights. During the championship game, we encountered a significant shift in dynamics compared to the training sessions, which presented a unique challenge for our teamwork. In order to adapt effectively, we swiftly reallocated responsibilities, with a particular focus on three keys: answering, finance, and operations. In these areas, we fostered a spirit of cooperation and mutual support. In my specific role, I was tasked with the intricate challenge of prioritising ESG indices while simultaneously ensuring profitability in each simulation round. Needless to say, this posed its own set of difficulties. I must commend AG's platform for providing an excellent foundation for our team's collaboration and enabling us to truly put our cooperation skills to the test. I sincerely appreciate the efforts invested by your team in organising this competition, and I genuinely hope that there will be more similar opportunities in the future.

AcademyGlobal's business simulation competition was an expansive experience that pushed the boundaries of the conventional learning process. The hands-on experience was both fun and challenging. I started considering a more holistic approach to entrepreneurship and implementing new ways of thinking, and ESG has climbed the ladder to sit on my priority list of business decisions. The short simulation serves as a catalyst and emphasises the importance of building a healthy and sustainable business beyond an effective revenue generator.

The simulation has enhanced our teamwork and collaboration by allowing us to work together in a virtual business environment, strategise, make decisions, and analyse outcomes collectively. For the short answer section of the simulation, this contributed to our team's success by problem-solving while providing a realistic business context for us to apply our knowledge.
