Shall we play a game ?

Stumbled across an online multiplayer game that is a business educational learning tool – you can learn to become a Murdoch or Packer :

Create and manage your own Corporation in a virtual Economy

Maybe it’s time for Grumpy Wookie Incorporated :

IndustryPlayer participants undertake an entrepreneurial start-up, develop a portfolio of up to 5 companies and manage these investments for the benefit of all stakeholders.

The simulation is based on real world economic models and features a total 237 industries (16 sectors).

Goals: 
To create more value (equity) and ROE (Return on equity) than all other participants.

Roles: 
Students play individually or in teams. Single participants take the role of the CEO. Typical team roles are CEO, CFO and COO.

Sorry – not available on XBox-360 or PlayStation 3.   Not like the game kiddies would be interested in anything like corporate take-overs or financial investment strategies !

You can even choose a business “sector” to operate as – including Automotive, Beverage, Textile, Machiney, Applications, Agriculture – the list goes on.

Truly a great learning tool – business education – for students hoping to become  the future kings (and queens) of Wall St.  

Where can I sign up Cameron ?!?    🙂
