We're All About the Finish - CityU students finish at twice the national rate

BELLEVUE, Wash. – This summer, City University of Seattle, a not-for-profit university located in Bellevue, Washington, had three teams from their Bratislava, Slovakia campus named among the top 10 on the global “Top 10” Capstone Business Simulation (CAPSIM) list. CAPSIM is the best selling business simulation for college and executive education in the world – it draws over 200,000 participants. There are over 1500 teams in the world competing for this honor, and only the best of the best made it to the top 10 percent.

There are currently over 500 colleges, universities and elite corporations engaged in CAPSIM, and CityU of Seattle is one of them. CityU of Seattle integrated CAPSIM into its bachelor of science in business administration (BSBA) and its master’s in business administration (MBA) curriculum in fall 2009. The hope was to give students an opportunity to explore operations, human resource management and staffing strategies, among other things.

The teams who were awarded this honor were in a business strategy course taught at CityU of Seattle’s Bratislava campus. To secure a spot in the top 10 percent, the CityU teams had to go through several rounds of submissions and revise their business strategy in the aforementioned areas.

CityU is thrilled to be a part of CAPISM and sees it as a simulation that directly aligns with its value of providing its students with real-world, hands-on experience.
