WVU Parkersburg Business Policy Capstone students that compete in the worldwide market simulation GLO-BUS are nationally ranked for market leadership on a global scale. One of their student teams is tied for 29th position at the moment.
The competition promotes students to co-managers of a firm that sells either wearable video cameras or sophisticated camera-equipped copter drones, where they must make important decisions on product design and performance, funding company operations, pricing, and marketing.
By calculating the possible sales, profit, and other crucial statistics, a computer gives insight into how each action will affect the company’s success. On the basis of five factors, including earnings per share, return on equity, stock prices, credit rating, and brand image, the firms are evaluated.
Jessika Doster, a student at WVU Parkersburg and a member of the Glo-Busters, remarked, “At the beginning of the semester, Professor Holland indicated that he previously had a team finish in the top 10 in the Glo-Bus tournament.” “I honestly did not expect to even place in the top one hundred. Now that we have, I cannot wait to see how far our firm can go.”
The Glo-Busters are tied for 29th position in the overall game-to-date standings for the week of March 6-12, with a score of 107 out of a possible maximum of 110. These rankings are based on a maximum score of 110 and a 50/50 weighting between Investor Expectations and Best-in-Industry.
Patrick Francis, Jessika Doster, Jackson Justice, James Malson, Shannon Reilly, and Boston Caruthers are students in this group.
Professor Jeff Holland remarked that WVU Parkersburg business students compete at a high level in these events. “Our pupils outperform those at the nation’s largest schools and institutions. I am pleased of the accomplishments of our students, who are among the best-rated graduates in the nation.
The Business Policy Capstone students are joined by over 2,559 students from 119 colleges and institutions from across the world. GLO-BUS incorporates all of the principles studied throughout the baccalaureate business degrees and allows students to develop their own success plans. The tournament is ongoing, and the teams intend to maintain their success.
