Student Recognitions

CarsonFieldsCarson Fields finished strong with second place in worldwide competition

GSW business student Carson Fields of Bogart, Ga., recently placed second in The Business Strategy Game Tournament of Champions, an online simulation where students create “companies” and compete against other university teams from around the world.

“GSW teams have traditionally done well against much larger universities. I believe this is indicative of the quality of our School of Business graduates” said Strategic Marketing professor Robert Bennett, Ph.D. “Carson did especially well in the Tournament of Champions, competing head-to-head against teams from around the world, which is a significant achievement.”

“The Tournament of Champions is significantly harder due to the fact that one is playing against 11 other people or teams who also won their class simulations,” noted Fields.

However, Fields did not start out quite as strong as he finished. By the third week of the Tournament, his “company,” Everyday Crocs, was nearly bankrupt.

“I severely underestimated my competition,” added Fields. “After three ‘years’, my company was in last place out of the twelve teams competing, and I was ever so close to going bankrupt and being completely out of the simulation.”
