Fall 2021 Registration is Open! Teams must be received by September 28 to participate this semester. MCEE is pleased to launch the Big Sky Biz Sim by First Interstate Bank! This is an in-class business simulation where students make all of the operating decisions for their business to produce, sell and distribute widgets.
The decision inputs are then matched against other teams competing across Montana for the highest stock market price at the end of eight quarters, (weeks in the simulation).
With the new partnership with First Interstate Bank, the game has been streamlined for teachers and modernized to manage against potential remote learning disruptions. The Biz Sim software and game has been in schools in Montana since 2000 with over 24,000 students participating with the support of the Montana State Chamber Foundation. It was formerly called the High School Business Challenge.
MCEE believes strongly in education through experiential learning. Students who participate will learn teamwork, communication, flexibility, problem solving, critical thinking and grit. All skills that will serve students and their future employers.
When students experience the ups and downs of their profitability based on their decisions, they not only will be taught the fundamentals of managing a business, but set in a competition, we can light the spark of entrepreneurship.
