At this year’s annual International Collegiate Business Strategy Competition (ICBSC) held at CSU Long Beach, California State University, East Bay’s team from their One-Year Intensive MBA program placed first in overall performance. The winning team competed against more than 20 other college MBA programs from around the United States.
The competition, which extends from February to the end of April, encourages student engagement, school pride and provides participating students with hands-on experience in policy formulation, budgeting, planning and scheduling in the corporate world.
According to the ICBSC Web site, “The Competition utilizes the Business Policy Game, an international simulation, designed to enable advanced business students to integrate and apply the theories of their business courses. The students become strategic managers of simulated companies competing against other business students acting as managers of their own companies. The simulated environment incorporates the economies of two countries, and requires consideration of global and domestic strategy.”
This year's team included Lara Menzel, Simon Miremadi, Prasanthi Darbha, Ruchika Agarwal, and Cherry Chen.
