Traditional business study would teach you based on theories and cases that inevitably make you miss out an important aspect of doing business, the real dynamic competitive environments. Working on Capstone brought me a much more complete perspective on this aspect as we not only need to plan our business to make it function properly, but we also need to proactively do business under intense competition in turbulent business environments created by other teams of competitor.

The CAPSIM GlobalDNA Simulation program was a highlight when I summarise my educational experience. It was a real-world experience that benefited me in my career immensely as it involved working as a team from different backgrounds and utilising each other’s strengths and moderate each other’s weaknesses to best achieve an optimal result. It truly is a great tool if used right and a very challenging but rewarding journey to be exposed to.

I have participated in CAPSIM Foundation Simulation two times. The first one was as a group project with my classmates during my MBA course and our team was the best-performing team among all teams. The second one was as an individual competitor in the 2016 Spring CAPSIM Simulation Challenge, of which I was ranked 21st with Balanced Scorecard score of 871. The simulation was an exciting and interesting challenge for me and I got so many experiences. It does not only gave me an experience for the whole business with a bird-eye view, but also made me balance a company with different important sections. Therefore, participating in the simulation and the CAPSIM Challenge were one of the great experiences for business development and it gave me both theoretical knowledge and practical experiences

The experience of getting to work with simulation has been top notch experience for me in my MBA program. The best thing about simulation is that it gives me the bird eye vision of the businesses that I am managing now. It helps me see how the departments are interconnected and how to manage the different departments in different financial situations. It not only helps me see how to grow in profitable business but also helps me in controlling the risk in losing business as well.

Using CAPSIM GlobalDNA simulation helps me gain concrete knowledge of business strategies. Strategic principles of simulation have shown me the relationships among products, pricing, and demands. I realized the importance of systematic inventory control method to manage cash flows and cost management. I have applied what I learned from the simulation and it has helped me achieve profit growth in my business.

The CAPSIM GlobalDNA simulation was impressive experience for me to learn how company is allocated resources with proper ‘Numbers’. It made me think how to organize limited resources in the business. As a participant, I realized one wrong decision could cause unexpected results over the whole business. Nowadays, in business life, this small experience from the simulation has enlightened me that every decision has consequences. The simulation is effective and efficient way of arranging your thoughts, applying knowledge in university curriculum, and experiencing business life in multinational company.

After working for the past two years, I have realized that many of the simulation features were also in real working life. At my current work, I am responsible for forecasts, placing orders, pricing, and marketing. My task is to study competitor product, estimate the number of sales of a certain product in a specific price range based on the market share of each brand. This would fall in the forecast phase of the game. Another phase in the game which I found very helpful is pricing. As Laos current economic situation is rather unstable, the national Lao Kip currency tends to fluctuate very often throughout the year; therefore, monitoring exchange rate is crucial. Global DNA has taught me how important teamwork is in a company. It teaches you that every single choice you decide to make will have a great impact on the outcome. I believe it has and continues to help a lot of students to think more critically and have a first-hand experience on how a company operates.

Oh my God, I miss this class so much! All the numbers and ratio…and all those days struggling with group members. Simulation is the hardest project in my university life. I still remember spending days in Café with my team members. It was the first time I look at a company’s operations precisely. The main concerns when operating a real company, you are most likely to find them in the simulation.

GlobalDNA gave me a glimpse on how real business works. My team and I learned how our decisions affected our business as we await for the weekly business report. I learned so much in this course. It is a really good tool to help students expand their horizon on business and improve interpersonal skills.

GlobalDNA is an amazing tool to help me be ready in the real business. It combines many skills, e.g., interpersonal, analytical, leadership, entrepreneurship, and communication skill. These are practical in reality. I appreciate practicing it before as I am very ready for the real business world.

CAPSIM GlobalGDNA presented me with an opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge and models from my prior business courses, including marketing, operation, finance, business strategies, into practice. The simulation provides realistic, hands-on learning experience and related to real international business situation. Specifically, I gained practical knowledge of how to launch new product, compete with rivals, manage inventory (when to produce in-house or outsource), spend marketing budget effectively and learn how to finance the business. The simulation lays a strong foundation of business and strategy that helps me to become a better researcher.
