"Simon Business School has expanded the online game it has used as an innovative recruitment tool for EMBA applicants since 2010 to encompass both the full and part-time Simon MBA programs.
"The ‘Simon Games’ represents a chance for prospective MBAs to test their business acumen in a bid to win a full scholarship to a Simon MBA program, worth more than US$90,000. With partially-funded places also up for grabs, it is expected that the total scholarship fund will amount to around US$540,000.
"The online game simulates the world of a technology company, placing the participant in the role of a CEO who has US$9 million to use at his or her discretion and must lead the company’s decision-making process each day.
"It plays out over the course of four weeks (or two years game-time) before those who score highest are invited to appear before a Simon MBA panel of faculty and administrators. The scholarships will then be awarded based on MBA program preparedness, analytical skills demonstrated during the competition, and their professional background."
