The Kochi, Coimbatore and Amritapuri campuses of Amrita University’s school of business won the first, second and fourth place in the recently concluded south regional finals of student management games organised by All India Management Association here. The third place went to GRG School of Management Studies, Coimbatore.
All the four teams will now compete with 11 other teams from across the country at the finals to be held here on November 30.
The 21st edition of games is to hone the decision-making skills of management students. It involves computer-based games that simulate realistic business scenarios, enabling them to apply their theoretical knowledge and business acumen in multiple functional areas.
Each team has four students who assume the roles of CEO, COO, CFO and chief marketing officer. They need to prepare a business plan and take strategic decisions based on simulated but realistic market fluctuations. The winner is judged based on the highest profit margin. Amrita University’s School of Business Chairman Dr Raghu Raman congratulated the winners.
