Simon’s Online Business Simulation Offers EMBA Scholarships

Here’s a fantastic opportunity for anyone considering an executive MBA program at the University of Rochester’s Simon Graduate School of Business.  Simon is offering full- and partial-tuition scholarships during an Online Business Simulation scholarship competition beginning on November 22, 2010.

For the competition, contestants 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.

One full-tuition grand prize scholarship valued at over $83,500 and three partial-tuition scholarships are being offered.

Participants in last year’s competition say the simulation gave them acute insight into all the skills needed to run a successful business.  It also gave them concrete learning objectives as they pursued their MBA.

“The 2010 EMBA Business Simulation afforded me two things: A glimpse into the professionally and personally challenging world of the Simon MBA and an opportunity to participate in a world class program I would have been unable to without,” says Jason Saner ’12, who won a full-tuition scholarship in the online competition earlier this year.

The deadline to register is November 19, 2010, at 6:00 p.m. ET, and the competition culminates in January 2011. Scholarship finalists will present their business solutions to a committee comprised of Simon School administrators and faculty at the Simon School on February 4, 2011.

Online registration and additional information is available at If you have any questions regarding the simulation, contact the Simon School Executive Programs Office at or call (585) 275-3439.
