Student co-managers of the Billionaire Blazers and Apricot were honored based on GLO-BUS performance variables including overall score, earnings per share, return-on-investment and stock price. The Glo-Bus simulation strategy game is an online exercise where teams of students put strategy and decision-making skills to the test as they develop business plans and compete against each other for market share. Each week, Glo-Bus lists the top 100 Global Performers in four categories: overall score, earnings per share, return on equity and stock price.
Student members of Apricot are Haoyu Chen, an MBA student from China; Adam Mancuso, an MBA student from Rochester, N.Y; and James Schmidt, an MBA student from Baldwinsville, N.Y.
