During the month of July 2019, I visited University Malaysia Pahang, Malaysia. I went there to pursue Business Analytics course as part of our MBA curriculum. The course was for 10 days and we had chance to explore more about Malaysian Culture, food and places. On 3rd day of our course, we got a chance to experience the most interesting part of our program Business Game, Monsoon Sim. In this game, we were separated into teams and given a Business for stimulated time period, investment and expected Return on Investment, Profit and few other parameters.
As we experience and understand the game, we were given more complex targets to achieve and more departments to deal with say like Inventory, Marketing, Production, Ecommerce, Services, Retail, Warehouse, HR, Maintenance, Finance and Forecast.
The Final game included all the categories such as Cash On Hand, Sales Retail, Net Profit, Sales Services, Profit Margin and Sales E-commerce. This game gave me a clear understanding on how to handle various departments of business and how to integrate them and also got broader scope of how each of these affect each other. Learnt how the real business will be operated and how data can be used for future forecasting.
