The Marktstrat simulation used is a renowned business game. Markstrat is designed for teaching strategic marketing concepts and decisions, such as:

  • Market segmentation
  • Product strategies
  • Marketing mix

  • HR
  • Production
  • Distribution
  • Market research

Each team of three to six participants competes against each other to successfully pilot their industrial company over a multi- year period. The name of the game reflects the character of long-term strategy. Because decisions are made over a six-to -twelveyear period, teams are forced to not only plan for short-term profits, but long-term objectives.Since each teams actions directly influence the market, competitive analysis is a must. Competitor actions and reactions, new product launches, sales and distribution strategies all define how teams manage their own product portfolio, R&D projects, positioning, pricing and distribution channels.
