HEC Business Game is a "Capstone" course (6 ECTS) for third year students. It offers students the opportunity to review and synthesize the knowledge aquired during the 3 years of the BSc in Management.

The HEC Business Game offers students the possibility:

  • to practice team work in a competitive environment
  • to apply theories and concepts from their previous studies,
  • to improve their capacity to take decisions within short time frames, in an uncertain environment and facing information overload.


Working in small teams, students will

  • gather practical experiences in applying management concepts
  • experience the benefits of integrated management concepts

Students will demonstrate their ability to

  • develop a business strategy for their company
  • operationalize this strategy consistently in the different enterprise functions (marketing, sales and distribution, production, purchasing, finance and controling, ...)
  • run and manage integrated business processes
  • develop a balanced scorecards and KPIs that reflect their business strategy
  • analyze firm performance

The business game uses simulations developped for pedagogical purposes. These simulations run on authentic management systems like SAP ERP or Odoo ERP.
