Dear future RBG participants,

Welcome to Rome Business Game 2020.

 

It is with great honour that as Director of this fifth edition, I welcome you to the 2.0 evolution of our global, leading academic experience, specifically designed for students and graduates in the economic and business field.

Rome Business Game originated from the family of RomeMUN, one of the biggest and most prestigious MUN simulations in Europe. Since its foundation in 2010, the competition greeted thousands of students from 61 countries to the "Eternal City" of Rome.

 

We decided to create Rome Business Game in light of the critical turning point experienced from an economic perspective by our society that marked the aftermath of 2008. Back then, companies had to review their strategies, to think out of the box, yet not all of them survived this phase. Many still struggle. A few succeeded in unprecedented ways.

Such uncertain times call for a dynamic generation of talented, ingenious managers and business professionals. Hence, we strive to empower business and economics students with the opportunity to face real-life managerial cases, presented by world-class companies in a realistic business environment.

For its 2020 edition, we redesigned Rome Business Game from the ground up. A completely reinvented and improved simulation model - five business divisions, one global and five specific objectives, a mentoring program, and a more interactive, cross-functional structure.

 

Never so challenging. Never so engaging. Our best RBG ever.

 

We are more confident than ever, Rome Business Game will be an experience to be remembered for a lifetime. A unique occasion not only to broaden your academic and professional horizons but also for a profound personal enrichment. Meet new friends, practice your English, improve your soft skills.

Being a good manager, indeed, does not simply revolve around possessing technical and theoretical capabilities; it requires an outstanding mastery of transversal abilities as well: business awareness, emotional intelligence, teamwork, critical thinking, and negotiation, among a few. 

Being a leader, rather than remaining a boss.

We look forward to meeting all of you. A diverse, dynamic audience of future professionals, managers, and leaders, all driven by the common will to be challenged, to collaborate, to share your knowledge and to compete fairly.

 

Will you take up our challenge? 

Let the games begin.

Dear Participants,

It’s with great honour that I welcome you to the 11th edition of the Rome Press Game. This carefully designed simulation offered by the Giovani nel Mondo Association, has been thought to give all those passionate about journalism, communication, translation and interpretation, a chance to taste the work of some of the most important international news networks currently in action.


During the 4 days of the International Careers Festival in Italy’s magnificent Capital, participants of the Press Game will take on the role of reporters or language experts and will collaborate with the aim of sharing news regarding the conference. Each participant will be assigned to a team, which will be
expected to face challenging tasks: interviewing, radio broadcasting, web journalism and television reporting are just some of the activities you will all
experience. Right beside you will be a team of carefully selected experts who will guide you through it all and give you all the advice you need.


As you may know, it takes more than studying to become a good journalist. While a proper education is absolutely essential, to really stand out in the global information system you must acquire all the practical skills possible. The Rome Press Game has been thought to do just this and by adopting a learn by doing approach, this event will help you put in practice the knowledge you have gained during your academic life in an innovative learning and multicultural environment.
As someone who has participated as a student, I personally know that you will treasure this experience for the rest of your life. This is not just a chance to

Around 2000 participants from 100 countries. More than 160 promoters from all over the world. 4 different simulations, seminars and many workshops for young people to chose from in order to develop further knowledge and gain insights in the fields of economics, politics and international relations, communication and journalism. The Executive Director of the association in charge of the organisation and planning of the Festival, Daniela Conte, proclaimed at her speech in the opening ceremony on the 24th of sarch at LUISS Guido Carli University of Rome, that this festival can be seen as “a journey of friendship, opportunities, challenges, hope and inspiration”. But what does the festival stand for exactly?

 

For the ninth time this year, young people from all around the world come to the “eternal city” of Rome to participate on the International Careers Festival 2018 from the 24th of March until the 27th of March 2018.The Festival, which has been initiated by the non-profit organisation Giovani nel Mondo with the RomeMUN in 2009 and later developed as it is today, stands for cosmopolitanism and interculturality.The whole festival consits in the RomeMUN, the Rome Business Game, the Rome Press Game and the International Careers Course.

In the Rome Model United Nations delegates have to represent a specific country in a committee, which has been assigned to each of the delegates before. The 10 committees deal with topics, for instance migration policy in Europe, quality education, the situation of refugees in the world and possible interventions to ensure global security by the nuclear disarmament. Besides, prestigious speakers are invited to present speeches regarding these various topics; for instance: Ambassadors, professors of the Rome University of International Studies.

Interculturalism and internationally are relevant topics  in the Rome Buisiness Game, too. The Program Director, Luca Marco Giraldin Von Lahnstein, welcomed 1000 participants this year. Economists-to-be can exercise themselves in learning more about economic strategies, leading companies and resolving economical and political difficulties within a current expanding world. Hereby, the interest for intercultural issues, on which the whole festival stands for, can further be stimulated. The connection between economy and culture helps to widen one’s own horizon and opens the access to a cross-cultural and cross-cutting knowledge.

The Rome Press Game is the third simulation and focuses on journalism, international communication, interpretation and translation. Thus, the participants are asked to report on the International Careers Festival and write appropriate articles, record radio-broadcasts, and create and edit videos. During her speech at the opening ceremony, the Program Director of the Press Game, Shanti Kodituwakku Hettiarachchilage underlined the possibility to gain the so called soft skills which can only be developed in a multicultural environment while creating also interpersonal relationships.

Gaining international experiences, simulating the real working life, challenging oneself and testing one’s boundaries, improving one’s ability to work in a team, getting to know new people from different cultures- these are just some of the answers participants gave regarding their motivation to participate at the International Careers Festival.

Also the International Careers Fair, which is accompanied by 44 exhibitors, takes place at the Rome University of International Studies on Monday the 26th of March and Tuesday the 27th.

Within the fair, mock interviews, workshops, CV reviews and recruitment sessions are offered by the companies which take part, including "global players" like LIDL, UNICEF and UNESCO Giovani.

Through a wide range of tasks, the international level of participants, organisers and topics stress the original idea of the Festival to be an occasion where talent meets opportunity.
