Glo-Bus is being used by more than 600 Business schools and colleges around the world to induct students on realistic business-world scenarios, which includes strategic business development and simulation models. More than 500,000 students worldwide have participated in this competition.

It is the sister game to its old brother Business Strategy Game that dates back to the early 1990s.The strategy game focuses upon aspects such as production design, marketing, assembly (for both entry-level and multi-featured), compensation and labor, discount bids, corporate citizenship, and finance and cash flow. Every player makes decisions in their respective companies that are submitted before a due date in which the game ‘turns’ one year. The next financial year shows who has met investor expectations or who is clearly the most profitable in the industry.
