International Trade Simulation, ITS, is a comprehensive, intensive, professional and practical course. The students will enter an animated and emulational export trade environment through the exquisitely constructed platform of ITS, combine to set up trading companies and do international business on the platform. ITS strives to let participants understand, learn and explore all export practical skills and knowledge from the simulated business environment. The ability of analysis, organization, contingency, management and communication covered within will thus be practiced and improved.
During the training period the students will be plugged into a simulated
Internet environment to be a real decision-maker, a company manager
as well as the business operator. They register a company of their
own and open their bank account. By browsing the net, they can be well
informed of the demand and the supply home and abroad and decide
what to sell or buy. The information based on the ITS platform also provides
the rate of insurance and freight, exchange and interest as well
as tariff and duties etc., which are all changeable periodically,
or even unexpectedly. During each transaction, the participants negotiate with
foreign counterparts (simulated by the professors and professionals as well as
the foreign students) by E-mails in competition with others.
Also they can have the operation simulation with the shipping and
insurance companies, customhouse, banks and other trade service
bodies. At the end of program (normally lasted for 12 weeks), the
participants are evaluated mainly by the company turnover, business
profit and operation proficiency as well as response capacity.
SCICIB is very much keen on cooperation as to ITS program in
the aim at setting up a global business simulation network through
Internet. We are now seeking the partners all over the world to
join this exciting program. We suppose each training spot sets up
its own Intranet to enable local participants to run simulated trading
companies within it. Then all training spots exchange information
(import or export opportunities) through Internet.
Thus, a global simulated business network is established, on which
participants of different cultural backgrounds can exchange freely
trading information, communicate and compete with those who will
most likely engage in business in the future.
We firmly believe through our many years' experience that such
international cooperation depends very much on the passion of the
school and the devotion of the instructors and project managers.
We wish to set up cooperation with you as you firm up your decision
to invest time and energy in the development and improvement of
your simulation program. We believe working with you towards common
goals will be exhilarating, energizing and satisfying.
