CMU International Students Place 2nd in Global Business Competition
Five CMU International students teamed up for a global business competition and placed 2nd in the world.
CMU student, Yinghui Lu says the team had to learn a lot about each other in order to work together and says, “Now, we’re like family.”
The CMU students represented different countries of origin including Saudi Arabia, India, and China.
The ERPsim competition competition mimics real-life business challenges in real time using the SAP software that many companies use for enterprise management.
In order to compete, each student had to master SAP software, building valuable technical skills. Their mock business, a cereal company, faced unexpected challenges in every cycle, forcing them to quickly address and resolve a variety of problems.
More than 200 students and 50 mentors representing 37 companies participated in this year’s event.
