Simon Games Details
Simon Games is a simulation-based competition that provides you with the opportunity to make strategic decisions to improve a company's performance—all while competing for a full-tuition scholarship! (In total, over $500,000 in scholarships will be awarded to competition finalists.)
There are two opportunities to play Simon Games—one in the fall and one in the spring. Candidates interested in Simon's Full-Time MBA, MS in Accountancy, Business Analytics, Finance or Marketing Analytics programs are invited to play in the Fall Games (register by October 25). Those interested in Simon's Executive MBA or Online MS in Business Analytics are invited to play in the Spring Games (registration will open later this fall). Candidates interested in Simon's Professional MBA are invited to play in either the Fall or Spring Games depending on their desired entry term.
Depending on your program of interest, your simulation will involve one of the following:
- Acting as a CEO, making decisions on marketing, distribution, and manufacturing of a product
- Acting as a brand manager, utilizing analytic techniques to formulate a strategy to improve a brand’s performance
- Acting as a stakeholder in a company, analyzing an industry and shaping your company's success through strategic decisions amid dynamic forces
Participants compete against the computer. Emerge as a top contender and earn an invitation to the final round of the competition—Report to the Board—an opportunity to present on your performance to a board consisting of Simon staff, faculty, alumni, and current students.
A full-tuition scholarship will be awarded to the grand-prize winner from each challenge, based on program of interest:
- 1 Full-Time MBA grand-prize winner!
- 1 Professional MBA grand-prize winner!
- 1 Full-Time MS grand-prize winner!
In total, over $500,000 in scholarships will be awarded to the top finalists who enroll in the program that corresponds to their challenge in the next matriculating term.
