The Simon Graduate School of Business at the University of Rochester has announced the creation of full- and partial-tuition scholarships for its Executive MBA program during an Online Business Simulation scholarship competition beginning on March 5, 2010.
Contestants vying for one full-tuition grand prize scholarship, valued at $83,500, and three partial-tuition scholarships, must devise strategies and solutions to solve a series of six key business decisions. The simulation, established to attract high-quality applications to the Simon School Executive MBA program, is being administered by Marketplace Simulations.
The registration deadline is March 3, 2010, at 6:00 p.m. EST. The competition culminates in early May, when finalists present their business solutions to a committee comprised of Simon School administrators and faculty at the Simon School on May 7, 2010.
If you have any questions regarding the simulation, contact the Simon School Executive Programs Office at [email protected] or call (585) 275-3439.
