paco_formalHello, my name is Francisco Carrada-Bravo. I am a university professor.

To introduce a more practical bent to my courses, I designed the Carrada Simulator.

The Carrada Simulation was created to train executives, MBA's, government officers, and students of any background, how to manage a multinational corporation in a digital market.

The Simulator

During the planning period, the participants are organized into eleven management teams integrated by three to five members.

The responsibility of the management teams are: 1) to manage from one to fourteen subsidiaries, selling from one to five products; 2) to prepare a business plan, and 3) to update it as many times as desired.

To help the participants to accomplish this task, the Carrada Simulator provides a detailed manual, including marketing, cost, financial, and technological information, as well as micro and macroeconomic statistics, summarizing key aspects of the markets included in the simulation.
