Success International Business students in Spain

During Markstrat – a game organized by the Universidad Cardenal Herrera – students worked in international groups divided into four branches, supervised by lecturers and tutors. Thanks to computer simulations, they had the opportunity to gain practical knowledge on making strategic marketing decisions for companies operating within global competition. The group's success was determined by both the financial result and market shares as well as teamwork and the abilities of presenting the results.

The efforts and very good preparation of our students have resulted in success and winning:

  • gold medal – Marcin Mol,
  • silver medal – Katarzyna Nahorniak,
  • bronze medal – Magdalena Buhl, Kinga Maroszek, Anna Wróbel, Jakub Reczko, Kamil Skrobisz and Konrad Żurowski.

The organizers have also appreciated our tutors Karolina Wydymus and Szymona Zdziebko who received special distinctions and prizes for their reliable work and great involvement in running the Markstrat game and supporting our students.

Congratulations to all students and tutors! We wish you further successes, especially in the realities of the real global market.
