Sim Superbowl

Fall 2012 Sim Superbowl results announced

The Fall Sim Superbowl was held Thursday, November 15, 2012 from 5:30-8:00 pm in the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Schneider Hall, Room 100. Approximately 175 students in the College of Business strategic management senior capstone course taught by Dr. Todd Hostager and Dr. Kristy Lauver participated in the event.

Top honors at the competition went to Team DynaPixx and Team Compass Cameras Inc.

Team DynaPixx, which consisted of Jacob Day, an accounting and operations/materials management double major from Spencer, WI, Staci Hotujec, a HR management major from Eau Claire, WI, and Lacey Patzer, a management major from Byron, MN, had the highest year-to-date overall score. Team Compass Cameras Inc., which consisted of Jesse Burns, a systems development IS major from Fall Creek, WI, Yu Chen, a business administration major from Zhejiang, China, Caleb Lane, a marketing major from Marshfield, WI, and Katie Ward, a finance major from Andover, MN, achieved the highest final year overall score. See box below for all results.

During Sim Superbowl, teams use Glo-Bus, a computer simulation, to run hypothetical digital camera companies in head-to-head competition against their classmates. Each team is responsible for “assessing market conditions, determining how to respond to the actions of competitors, forging a long-term direction and strategy for their company, and making decisions relating to workforce compensation and plant operations, assembly plant capacity, pricing and marketing, finance, and corporate social responsibility/citizenship,” according to the Glo-Bus website. Decisions made by student teams affected their company’s individual performance as well as its rank within the global marketplace. Individual company and industry results are posted every 30 minutes. Overall and industry leaders are announced at the end of the competition.
