The Student SimChallenge Final has come to an end after 192 students across the UK ran virtual businesses for two intense weeks. Student SimChallenge was the Centre for Applied Learning’s first initiative inspired by Lord Young’s “Enterprise for All” recommendations.
During Student SimChallenge Final, each team ran a virtual business everyday for one week, all the students operating within the same industry. They were in charge of deciding on their pricing strategy, research and development, manufacturing, marketing, human resources, ethics and international expansion up to two countries (Canada and Brazil).
