This is an opportunity to increase your network, both with enterprise and other students.
I am enrolled in a course that has nothing to do with business. How could this Business Game be interesting for me?
Business games help to improve not only hard skills but also soft skills, such as team working, communication, problem-solving and critical thinking, which are requested in many different works. Besides, it is an occasion of networking and having fun. Finally, all the enterprise work in a different sector, so maybe you will have a challenge with more marketing and creativity and another with more informatics or engineering. However, all the challenges have been created in order to be solved by different types of students, and not necessarily, they require specific hard skills.
