MBA STUDENTS AT SASTRA MIND THEIR
The School of Management, SASTRA has introduced in its IV trimester a subject titled Management Game. This game is offered in a software mode wherein students are formed into teams of four with each of them assigned the roles of CEO, CFO, COO & CMO of the company that they are supposed to manage. The software is designed in such a way that each team has to manage its business by strategising their options with respect to price, production, financing, etc. The team is graded based on the Economic Value Addition (EVA) that the team creates to its company. This game serves as a test-bed for the students to experiment their theoretical concepts and exposes them to the realities that exist outside.
