The Global Business Game - Business Basics Edition
The Global Business Game Editions
The Global Business Game is available in three editions, with each using different industries and economic zones
for their competitive scenarios:
Business Basics Edition revolves around the motor scooter industry.
Student teams manufacture a single high-end motor scooter and can sell it in two markets: either North America and South America, Europe and Africa,
or Asia and Oceania. The game is set for 6 decision rounds. This
edition offers beginning business students an excellent overview
to the challenges and rewards of managing and expanding an international
company. Financial transactions, financial instruments, human resource
management, production, distribution, and logistics are all simplified
but illustrative of important business decisions.
The World Edition uses the television set segment of the
Household Audio and Video Equipment Industry. Student teams manufacture
and sell 25-inch and 27-inch television sets in one to three economic
zones: NAFTA, EU and APEC. Depending on the instructor's choice
they may conduct business in the United States, Mexico, Germany,
Spain, Japan, and Thailand. The game can be set to run for 8, 10,
or 12 decision rounds (quarters).
The Americas Edition allows students to compete in up to
three economic zones within the Western Hemisphere. Mexico and
Colombia are in Zone 1, Canada and the United States are in Zone
2, and Brazil and Argentina are in Zone 3. This edition features
the top-loading washing machine segment of the Home Appliance Industry.
The game can be set to run for 8, 10, or 12 decision rounds.
