A student team from Montclair State University’s Feliciano School of Business finished in the Global 100 in four categories in the online Business Strategy Game (BSG) during the spring 2024 semester.  The student team from the MGMT 439 class taught by Brian Porter, included Aidan Behan, Ashlin Quevedo, Brandon Tabasco, and Mariela Tapia.

The co-managers of Fleure (Company F) earned a Global Top 100 ranking on the following performance criteria:

  • Overall Game-To-Date Score – Their Overall Score of 110.0 tied for the best Overall Score performance of the week, worldwide!
  • Earnings Per Share – Their EPS of $27.86 was the 47th best EPS performance of the week, worldwide!
  • Return on Average Equity – Their ROE of 63.4% was the 41st best ROE performance of the week, worldwide!
  • Stock Price – Their Stock Price of $739.12 was the 36th best Stock Price performance of the week, worldwide!

The Montclair State students were among 3,000 teams from more than 175 universities competing in the simulation worldwide during the last year.

BSG is an online strategy simulation game in which student teams run fictitious athletic footwear companies in head-to-head competition against each other. Similar to real athletic footwear companies, the simulation firms operate in a global market, selling branded and private-label products across geographic regions. Student teams make over 100 critical business decisions each week for ten weeks over the course of the semester to manage the complexities of production, distribution, marketing, operations, facilities, celebrity endorsements, compensation, training and finance.
