These first steps in the professional world start with a make-believe company. Students, divided into groups of four, become the head of a company set in a world of competition. They must decide of their strategy and organization, and must take decisions: financial, technical and concerning human resources. Orders from the competing companies are entered by an organizer in a market simulator program, Winfirme. Students then analyze their results, and take further decisions. Inputs of fundamental knowledge alternate with game play. This simulation is in French, and takes place during a fixed period. At the end of it, students must offer an analysis of company management. They must moreover present a report of their actions. Context of this report is theirs to decide (interview with journalists, meeting ...)
