About the 2022 Competition

Bruce Sparks, Administrative Director

In the spring of 2022 the 58th International Collegiate Business Strategy Competition hosted by California State University, Long Beach will begin in January with starting positions and materials distributed to participants.  The first decision round is scheduled for February 2.  It will culminate on April 21-23 with a three-day intensive phase followed by an awards ceremony.  We are very excited about our 58th competition in 2022.

The location of the competition intensive phase will take place online. The three day intensive phase requires students to make decisions on an accelerated schedule, and mix in meetings with the judging teams, which are a mix of seasoned, senior level, management professionals and academics with a specialty in business strategy.

The Competition utilizes the Business Policy Game, an international simulation, designed to enable advanced business students to integrate and apply the theories of their business courses. The students become strategic managers of simulated companies competing against other business students acting as managers of their own companies. The simulated environment incorporates the economies of two countries and requires consideration of global and domestic strategy.

The international competition starts with student teams organized into undergraduate and MBA “worlds,” with four to six teams in each “world” competing directly against each other. Trophies are awarded separately in each “world.” The Competition extends over five simulated years, one calendar quarter at a time.

The planned schedule for the 2022 Competition is as follows:

Registration Deadline: The deadline for registration is December 31, 2021

Payment of Registration Fees: All registration fees must be paid no later than January 23, 2022

Team Corporate Charters with Student Names and Officer Titles and Contact Information:  All contact information must be provided to the Competition Administrative and Operations Directors by January 16, 2022.  A form will be provided to team faculty advisors for this purpose early in January.

Competition begins on or about January 25, 2022 with disbursement of starting position files.  The First Decision Set will be submitted by student teams to the Competition via Internet by February 1, 2022 (6:00 AM west coast, USA time).

Written Strategic Plan for Years 4-7 of the simulated companies’ operations must be emailed no later than March 7, 2022
