Two Groups of Management Students Tie for First Place in the International Glo-Bus Competition

As part of the coursework in select undergraduate upper-management classes, Granite State College students compete with other colleges and university students in a competitive simulation of the digital camera industry.

From a pool of more than 3,000 teams from 160 institutions, two Granite State College groups of students taught by Professors Michael Russell and Phillip Russell respectively tied for a Global Top 100 ranking.

Glo-Bus provides an active learning experience for students with authentic managerial situations. Working in teams, students are responsible for assessing market conditions, determining how to respond to the actions of competitors, forging a long-term direction and strategy for their company, and making decisions relating to workforce compensation and plant operations, assembly plant capacity, pricing and marketing, finance, and corporate social responsibility/citizenship.
