LeBow College Students Take First Place in Capsim Competition

May 04, 2009

A team of two Drexel University LeBow College of Business MBA students took first-prize in Capsim Management Simulations Inc.'s Capsim Challenge, beating out 261 other teams from business schools around the world. LeBow College's team was comprised of One-Year MBA students Thomas Murtaugh and Thomas Molter. Raymond Bokenkamp, also a One-Year MBA student, served as a consultant to the team.

The Capsim Challenge is held twice annually and requires students to compete against both a computer and other teams by winning the most market share with a computer-simulated business. During the first round, the teams competed against a computer. The six teams with the highest score moved on to the finals round. LeBow College's team scored highest in both rounds.

LeBow College's One-Year MBA program prepared these students for the competition with a one-week seminar on business simulations. "This competition really helped me to realize the value of my MBA in a practical application," Murtaugh said. "It demonstrated the knowledge I've gained through LeBow College's MBA program, and really proved the value of my MBA."
