Few years ago, nobody expected that a pandemic would shake the fragile balance of the global system. Interruptions to global trade flows, chip shortages and political instability are some examples of the ripple effects of the pandemic… And all of these challenges had one thing in common – No one was ready.
That is why FUTURES WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP (FWC) was created.
Participants around the world will form teams of one to three players. These teams will compete against each other in a market-based simulation to grow their computer company. Competitors must decide how many chips to buy to build their computers and how much to invest in marketing their computers. Besides the intense rivalry throughout the competition, teams will also deal with 5 different world challenges:
Populism, Security Threats, Environmental Crises, Trade Flow Interruptions and Shifts in Demographics
With the increasing risks caused by the uncertainties of the world, how can management decisions affect the survival of their companies?
