Mission Statement

The International Collegiate Business Strategy Competition is a challenging competitive event that serves universities, their students and the business community. The Competition provides students with an exciting learning experience in which they, in direct competition with other college teams, run a simulated company and have the opportunity to network with business executives and students from around the world. Universities benefit by participating in a program that encourages student engagement, builds school pride and provides their best students with an experience that can jump-start their careers with a resume-building activity. Our business partners benefit by being able to meet and recruit talented individuals who have had the personal and professional growth experience of the ICBSC.


The 2015 International Collegiate Business Strategy Competition is now open for registration.   The 50th Anniversary Competition was concluded on  April 26, 2014.  In 2014, 33  teams organized into seven worlds — four undergraduate and three MBA  – competed.  To see a full list of all 2014 trophy winners, please click Winners 2014.  The 2015 dates for the on-site phase of the 51st ICBSC have been set for April 23-25, 2015.  Once again, the location for the on-site will be the DoubleTree Suites by Hilton, Anaheim Resort and Convention Center.  California State University, Long Beach is the host university.
