Four students of The University of the South Pacific’s (USP) Tuvalu Campus studying under the Master of Business Administration (MBA) programme scooped the Industry Champions in Globus Simulation Tuvalu Online Game (Globus) in MBA 440 Strategic Management.

Led by Mrs. Fetagisi Faimalaga Titivalu, the win was a well-deserved achievement for their group and for MBA and they were proud to make it to the top 50 and ranked the best world-wide during the week (27 May – 2 June 2019). 

The team achieved the best overall to score to date performance; 2nd best Earnings per Share performance of the week; the best return on Average Equity performance of the week; and the best Stock Price performance of the week, all worldwide.

The team was proud that USP MBA Tuvalu made its way up as an Industry Champion in the 2019 Globus Developing Winning Strategies.

The game was a great learning experience, seeing competitors performing in the market and also taking a close watch on the annual scoring measures to ensure that they met or exceeded the expected target of their investors for the year.

Engaging in the online simulation, they felt as if they were running a real life business, learning that all should work to ensure that not only are the goods produced but also having the best results in the market industry. In addition, it also ensured that they made the right decision with co-managers in order to utilise resources in an economy, in an effective and efficient manner, and to be competitive in running a business.

Congratulating the winning Team C, Competitive Team leader Fetagisi Faimalaga Titivalu, acknowledged Tele Pelosa, Selai Managreve and Makatala Sapakuka for doing a great job and for their contributions.

Dr. Rosiana Lagi, Tuvalu Campus Director shared similar sentiments and congratulated the winning team including other Tuvalu Campus MBA students who also won in their categories. 

She said she is delighted with the students’ accomplishment in putting Tuvalu Campus in the top 50 positions globally. 

“This is a great achievement indeed!  Students from a tiny campus in a small nation being ranked in the top 50 in the world.  It shows that the university is living up to its aim in providing a world class education – educating its students to be able to compete globally and coming out winners.  Well, what can we say when they were also trained by one of the best in the world," Professor Dr. Patrick Low,” Dr. Lagi added.

MBA 440 is the 3rd last course the USP Tuvalu Campus cohort are doing towards their MBA.  These students are planning to graduate in December this year after completion of their final course in September.
