Management Simulation Days

The ZMS as a competence centre for business games offers high school students the opportunity to get to know the DHBW Stuttgart at our Management Simulation Days. A simple business game is carried out, by means of which business functions and interrelationships are vividly experienced. The students work in teams and compete with each other. The morning is enriched with information about studying at the DHBW Stuttgart.

The goal of the MSD is to introduce pupils to university studies and to convey basic business knowledge using the business game method as a "learning experience with a difference".

More than 1,100 pupils from a large number of schools have already participated.
