What is it?

The Business Challenge is a business simulation where teams or individuals from around NZ compete against each other in the running of a fictitious company. The business decisions made each period are entered into the simulation website, where the computer simulation analyses the effects on the competing companies.

Each round of six periods involves a different business scenario, where varying business conditions are set, the product to be manufactured and sold is determined, and national economic trends are followed.

The goal for each team is to make as much profit as possible. The winning team is determined by the team who makes the most profit at the conclusion of the final (sixth) decision.

Those teams with the greatest profit from each round will progress to the semi-finals and finals competition, where the winners will be awarded prizes from the prize pool including international travel.
