Capstone course students compete in Simulation Super Bowl

| Carrie Ottum

Over a two-week period students enrolled in MGMT 449: Strategic Management for a Global Business Environment, the College of Business's capstone course, competed in the Simulation Super Bowl.

Through a simulated experience, student teams managed their own global action camera and drone company then competed head-to-head with other teams in their industry. In the first simulation, the competition was between student teams within the same course section. In the second round, the “Bowl” brought together student teams from all sections of MGMT 449.

The Sims Super Bowl has been a tradition of this capstone course for almost ten years. The opportunity for a redo competition in this format is unique to UW-Eau Claire. We’d like to congratulate this year’s Sim Super Bowl winners.
