More than 5 thousand students from 100 institutions participated in the ninth edition of Rush Hour, a simulation-based competition held in China. The finals took place at the Capital University of Economics and Business, in Beijing, between 17th and 19th of March. Check the best moments of the awards ceremony in the photo gallery bellow.
Undergraduate and graduate students competed separately. Among the undergraduate apprentices, the winner team came from the University of International Business and Economics (UIBE). A group from Renmin University was the champion among the graduate students. Part of our Cesim Team was also there to greet the participants and share insights with the instructors.
The competition happens once a year and includes three stages: qualifications, semifinals and finals, when the students also present a case analysis and their strategies. Cesim Connect was the simulation chosen for Rush Hour (page in Chinese) this year.
Cesim Connect is a telecom simulation game where teams manage mobile, broadband and entertainment services for residential customers and communications and IT services for corporate customers. It also includes decisions regarding network infrastructure development and finance.
