In the Final of the Pierce Business Game 2022!

On Monday, April 11th, 2022, the final round of the competition Pierce Business Game was held for 4th consecutive year. The 1st place was conquered by the team B BOSS, which was composed of the B Lyceum students, Efrosyni Balomenou, Maria-Ioanna Mavromati, Eleni Mylonidi, and Konstantinos Bousavere.

The HEDGERS came in 2nd place, and its members were the B Lyceum students, Aggelos Karolidis, Ioannis Asimakopoulos, Spyros Vlachos, and Ioannis Argyropoulos. The team DE GIA KRO CORP came in 3rd place, consisting of the A Lyceum students, Aggelos-Dionysios Debonos, Theodosi Giala and Nikola Krokidi.

In the final, 15 teams participated, out of the 60 that started at the beginning of the academic year. All the participants developed entrepreneurial skills, took risks and the initiative, and managed a virtual company, collaboratively and efficiently, with the aim of achieving maximum profitability. During the course of the competition, the students simulated real-life scenarios and made crucial decisions, while utilizing specialized educational software. The knowledge that our students have obtained from their participation in the Competition will help them in the exploration of their own interests and potential career, as well as in their daily life, regardless of their future area of expertise.

The awards were offered to the three teams by the Lyceum Director, Mr. George Vakerlis, the Advisor of the Competition and teacher of Economics, Georgios Papachristou and the former Director during the time period 2019-2021, Vasilis Malliaris. Ariadni Papouli, an IB student, was responsible for the presentation and the organization of this year’s final.

The main supporter of Pierce Business Game was GSK PHARMACEUTICALS GREECE. With their generous support, they gave the opportunity to 210 students of the three Lyceum classes as well as the IB classes, to enjoy the experience of the competition. Pierce – The American College of Greece is the only school which continues to offer its students the unique experience of participation in a distinct entrepreneurial student activity, through the utilization of the educational software of the Competition and the kind support of GSK. As this support is coming to an end, we hope that it will continue in the future, so that even the youngest students of our school will have the opportunity to discover the entrepreneurial world and to develop entrepreneurial thinking through their participation in the Pierce Business Game!

The Pierce Business Game is an evolution of the International Competition Young Business Talents, in which the Pierce students had achieved distinction, conquering 1st place in the National Final and 2nd in the International final of the competition!
