A team of MBA students from Maharishi University of Management recently won first place in a comprehensive business simulation competition. This team, along with another competing team from MUM, impressed everyone with their ability to work together in harmony despite coming from diverse backgrounds and cultures.
Two teams taking an accounting class as part of their MBA at Maharishi University of Management competed in the Capsim Foundation Simulation. They went up against 137 teams from top schools across the United States.
The winning team was truly international. It consisted of four men from four different countries: China, India, Nepal, and Pakistan.
Despite different religions and cultural backgrounds, the students were able to work together smoothly and harmoniously.
Dr Craig Pearson, Executive Vice President of Maharishi University of Management, commended the team members on their victory. He found it inspiring to think of 'students from these disparate countries working together in such a unified way, so coordinated that they could win'.
The winning team found success immediately, always showing in the top rank during the early rounds of the competition.
But they were not alone in their success. Said Dr Andrew Bargerstock, the students' teacher, 'It wasn't just a fluke—that we had one group that did very well.' The second team, made up of women from Iran, Cameroon, and Barbados, finished the competition in the 82nd percentile.
