In the business simulation module, our MBAs are divided into teams and given a week to complete a business operational task. The task's success or failure depends on their ability to communicate, strategize, lead and be creative.
The business simulation task presented to The Essex MBA Class of 2019 was a DJ Wagon.
Essentially a capstone project, this business planning and management module brings together a variety of skills that our MBAs will have developed throughout the course in key areas of: strategy, marketing, accounting, and entrepreneurship. The task is designed to challenge our MBA students to create and implement, in a simulated environment, a plan for their own business.
The business this year is The Essex MBA DJ Wagon. As loud as it is challenging, our MBAs had to use their business and team-working skills to combat a range of surprise business issues and develop their DJ Wagon business.
