Strategic Marketer of the Month Archives

November Strategic Marketer of the Month

We are delighted to announce that the Strategic Marketer of the Month for November is Anant Pagare, an MBA student at Cardiff Business School.

Anant achieved this by playing the online Market2win Game and guiding his virtual company to a superb market success.   In doing so, he demonstrated the right stuff for senior leadership including superior customer insight, situation awareness, strategic leadership and masterful execution.

Anant was glad to be involved in one of our games: “In my opinion, knowledge is of little use without understanding the practical aspect and consequences of application of the theories. Market2win provided a platform where we needed to analyse the market conditions, compete with other companies in a simulated market environment, anticipate the competitor’s strategy and to act accordingly to stay ahead. It was a great learning experience and I’d be glad to get an opportunity again to become a part of it.”

“There were over 300 MBA students playing in several different games” says Edmund, MD of Market2win, “and Anant’s company made one of the highest profits across all the games.  He did this by beating his fellow students, not the computer.  He did exceptionally well.”
