Registration for the 36th Marketplace® Live Tournament is now open!
WHAT IS THE MARKETPLACE® LIVE TOURNAMENT?
The Marketplace® Live Tournament provides participants with a realistic experience in managing an entire international firm. With a diverse mixture of teams from universities around the world, participants gain insight into the mindset and strategies of other players and cultures.
The competition will be held over the course of nine weeks and is completely web based. Participants will compete against each other using the Strategic Corporate Management Simulation.
The students will start an international electronics firm. Their firm will be responsible for introducing a new line of microcomputers into the world market. All competitors will start with exactly the same resources and knowledge of the market. The students will be responsible for marketing, manufacturing, human resources, finance, and accounting.
WHAT IS THE PRICE OF THE TOURNAMENT?
The price to participate in the tournament is $50 per student.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
The tournament welcomes both undergraduate and graduate business school students. Any number of teams can participate from the same organization or institution. Teams must consist of 1-6 students per team. Students can only enroll in the tournament if they work under the tutelage of an instructor (in other words, students cannot enroll independently from their school).
