TAKING HOME THE GOLD

UCR SCHOOL OF BUSINESS STRATEGY TEAMS WIN FOR THE SEVENTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR

Breadcrumb

Three UCR Business teams competed in the annual International Collegiate Business Strategy Competition (ICBSC) in April 2019 in Anaheim, California.  This year we are pleased to showcase the winning team from the undergraduate business program taking first-place in Overall Performance and one of the graduate teams earning first-place for Best Business Documents. 

The ICBSC is the world’s longest running business strategy competition where teams compete over a three-month period remotely, using a simulation software platform to run a business in a global competitive market for five years. Teams make strategic decisions from production output, human resource management, sales force management, marketing management, and financial management -- including building factories. 

The competition culminates in Anaheim for the three-day intensive where the teams are judged on their comprehensive business plans and financial reports.  The competition concludes with formal presentations to a panel of judges serving as the company’s board of directors.

The ICBSC offers students a world-class opportunity to experience the importance of team-work, leadership and strategic thinking.  From its first competition in 2012, the UCR School of Business remains a benchmark for competitive excellence.
