IIM-U GSCM is the National Finalist GMC 2020

Simuladores e Modelos de Gestão (SDG) conducted one of the world’s largest strategy and management competitions, the Global Management Challenge (GMC). The GMC is a management
facsimile where the participants – organizations and Business schools – get five weeks to simulate the management of a virtual company.

The participants focus on gaining the highest investment performance for the company’s shareholders. Global Management Challenge poses a highly advanced business enterprise simulation. The competition is open to company managers, professionals, entrepreneurs, and student teams consisting of three to five members.

The Challenge

The Global Management Challenge involves each of the teams simulating a company. The objective of the participants is to get the highest investment performance. The performance criterion measures the investment return for the original shareholders not only as of the value of their shares at the end of the competition but also after allowing for any shares purchased or sold, besides factoring any dividends received.

In this year’s management competition, where India’s top Business schools (including the IIMs) participated, seven teams from IIM Udaipur (IIM-U) reached the National qualification round, among the fifty-four teams that qualified.

IIM-U GSCM (Global Supply Chain Management) was one of the eight teams that made it to the final rounds.
