GREENSBORO, N.C. – Two Greensboro College students are among the global leaders in a business simulation for the week ending Oct. 6.

They are senior Business Administration & Economics majors Sylvia Collins of Troy, N.C., and Ryan Ramirez of Clermont, Fla. Their score for the past week tied them for fourth place globally out of 2,219 teams competing nationally and in more than two dozen foreign countries.

In the simulation, called Glo-Bus, the two co-own a fictional corporation called C&R Big Dogs. Each week, the competing corporations are graded on overall score for the current year, earnings per share, return on average equity, and stock price. Those scores, in turn, are affected by management decisions the two make.

Previously, C&R Big Dogs tied for 20th globally during the week ending Sept. 22.

Glo-Bus runs such simulations three times a year, involving a total of more than 31,000 students worldwide.
