Chicago, IL April 28, 2014: A team of two business students from BYU–Hawaii outperformed 1760 other students from around the world to reach the finals of the Capsim Business Simulation Global Challenge. The team was one of the 12 teams to qualify for the 48-hour, high pressure business simulation play-offs last weekend.
Time differences meant Kathy Tang and Dixon Wu, students from Hong Kong and majoring in Finance, worked early and late over Saturday and Sunday to meet the deadlines for eight decision-making rounds for their simulated company. Their instructor for the business simulation was Kevin Castle.
According to Wu, the most exciting and nerve-wracking moments of the challenge were when the reports came out at the end of each round. “The reports tell us whether our plan and execution worked or not,” Wu said. “When they did, and we got a brilliant result, it was really motivating!”
