On April 30th, 36 of our Upper Secondary students participated in an online business simulation contest hosted by ASDAN China. The intense contest lasted over 13 hours and over 76 groups from different international schools throughout China participated. The business simulation was created to help aspiring business leaders and entrepreneurs learn more about the logistics and strategies of how to run a business.
In groups of four, our nine AISG teams worked collaboratively to prepare and resolve problems that the contest simulated, including operational decision-making, company culture, production needs, simulated stock markets, and more. Students competed to see which mock company ultimately had the most net profits in the end.
ASDAN incorporates one of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) into their monthly theme with Zero Hunger being the theme for this competition. Students needed to propose sustainable business solutions focusing on Zero Hunger and figure out how to utilize social responsibility so that more people can be saved from hunger.
Our teams performed well, winning multiple awards with one of our teams making it to the final contest and qualifying for the World Youth Economic Forum later this year. A big shoutout to the student coordinators of the Business Club; they displayed impressive leadership skills when communicating with the student teams.
