MARGA Business Simulations
MARGA – The General Management Business Simulation
MARGA is a business management simulation in which the participants manage all of the departments and functions of a simulated company in the scope of a management training program. In this context they get to know the current management instruments and consolidate their basic business contexts. The participants use the knowledge they have gained in the team and implement it in a targeted way in specific decisions. This means they learn how to establish management decisions in terms of their content over the long term. This in turn means that a unique transfer of knowledge occurs in the direction of business thinking and management. Since 1971 executives have learned with MARGA how operational decisions influence the long-term success of a company. This management knowledge becomes a real experience through MARGA.
MARGA – Partner of ESMT
MARGA Business Simulations GmbH is a spin-off of ESMT. Even today ESMT holds a share in the company MARGA. ESMT implements MARGA in several management programs as an innovative and dynamic teaching method. Furthermore MARGA receives ongoing content-based stimuli which are incorporated in the management simulation program.
In the last 40 years MARGA has enthused over 100,000 managers and established itself as a fixed presence in many companies.
MARGA is offered in the following formats:
- MARGA Online Competition: In the Open Online Competition, teams participate from their place of work over the internet. This means they enter into an exciting competition with teams from other companies—until the finale at Schloss Gracht, to which only the best eight teams are invited.
- MARGA Compact: Over three intense seminar days, the participants alternate between condensed technical consultations and their practical implementation. In this context, decision making situations are included in the management simulation and their contents highlighted.
- MARGA Blended Learning: As a management training program, MARGA Blended Learning uses the dynamism of the management simulation and combines the advantages of a class seminar with the strengths of the online competition.
