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 ?!? 🙂
