The Global Management Challenge is the largest strategy and management simulation competition in the world. It's the largest international event based on business simulations, in which more than 450,000 university students and corporate executives have participated throughout the world for the past 30 years.
The concept of the competition emerged in 1980 in Portugal by SDG – Simuladores e Modelos de Gestão – in partnership with the weekly newspaper Expresso. Expresso has not only given a great amount of national coverage on the competition, but has also contributed immensely to the global growth and expansion process.
There are currently 40 countries/territories participating in the competition: Angola, Australia, Belarus, Belgium, Benin, Burkina Faso, Bolivia, Brazil, Cameroon, Congo-Brazzaville, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Guinea-Conakry, Hong Kong SAR (China), Hungary, India, Italy, Ivory Coast, Latvia, Macao SAR (China), Mali, Mexico, Mozambique, Niger, Nigeria, People's Republic of China, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania, Russia, Senegal, Singapore, Slovak Republic, Spain, Togo, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom, United States and Venezuela.
The Global Management Challenge consists of a strategy and management simulation competition in which each team runs a virtual company, with the objective of finishing with the highest company share price on the simulated stock exchange.
The simulator was initially designed and developed by Partners of EDIT 515 U.K., professors of the Operational Research Department of the University of Strathclyde in Scotland.
