Two teams from UW-Green Bay Associate Prof. Vallari Chandna’s (Cofrin School of Business) “Capstone in Business Strategy” Classes, have made it to the Top 50 rank in the GloBus Simulation weekly rankings for the week of Nov 22 to Nov 28, 2021. Both teams placed in the top 50.
The first team of UW-Green Bay business students consisting of the C-Suite members Doniven Coenen, Emma Hans, Joshua Quaintance, Rachel Wautier and Cassie Wiegert tied for 44th place out of 2356 teams from 111 colleges/universities participating currently. The second team of UW-Green Bay students consisting of the C-Suite members Emmanuel Akuamoa, Jenna Baumann, Michelle Hofacker, and Mandi Jameson tied for 21st place i.e. they placed in the top 1% in the world.
These worldwide rankings are especially commendable given that both teams are in online sections of the Capstone course, and the students have to coordinate their work virtually.
In the business Capstone course’s strategy simulation, student teams run a company that is racing for global market leadership in the wearable video cameras and camera-equipped copter drones industry. Each decision round, students make 20+ types of decisions from all business domains including design and performance, assembly operations, shipping and delivery, workforce compensation, pricing and marketing, corporate social responsibility and citizenship, and the financing of company operations among others.
