Want to find out whether you can manage a business? Want to show that your firm can make profits under your leadership? Want to prove to the world that you can conquer threats and benefit from opportunity?
If so, CXO is the event for you. This is where you and three other fellow students can band together as a team of managers. CXO will place your team in charge of a company with resources such as stocks and cash. And you will get to discover what it means to be as the top management.
CXO is one of the finest business simulation games in the world for Indian conditions. It is a collection of business problems, environmental issues, and organisational resources that imitates reality through a back-end software application. Over 7,000 participants have understood business management and entrepreneurship from variants of CXO since 2003.
CXO does not need its participants to be intellectuals, has no tests or examinations, no marks or grades, few books and teaching, and is full of conversions and interactions. CXO is one of the fastest and most exciting ways to learn about management functions, business drivers, financial reports, products and markets, teamwork, and making decisions.
A total of INR 60,000 in prize money is up for grabs. There will be one winner and one runner-up in each of the four groups.
Winner : INR 10,000
Runer-Up : INR 5,000
What do you need to be, have, or know to play in CXO? First of all, you must be eager to excel because this game is a competition. Next, you must have a passion for owning or running a business venture. A keen understanding of business or a working knowledge of business terms such as sales, prices, finished goods, and expenses would be very useful. If you know something about accounting statements such as ledgers and balance sheets, you would definitely have an edge over others. Finally, you should be curious to learn, for that would help you understand the game environment, quickly.
It may not be possible for any individual to have all these abilities. Therefore, four persons with different talents must come together for this game. We think that if you read business newspapers and have kept in touch with current events, you are reasonably qualified to play in CXO – not as an individual, but as a team.
CXO is suited for students undergoing graduation (or higher) in management and similar professional programmes, and in engineering and any other discipline, provided they have the basic abilities and interests described here. Students must understand English, the language of the game. Students of part-time and distance learning programmes are not eligible for registration or participation in CXO.
