We encourage teams to register early for MERIT 2016 so that you can make full use of the trialling that is now available. Trialling allows teams to:
- Learn the principles of company, business and financial management
- Familiarise themselves with the simulation
- Understand the data entry process
- Make mistakes
- Try out mad ideas before the game begins for real
The teams undertaking trialling receive feedback and advice to help develop their knowledge and understanding.
With teams already registered from Australia, New Zealand, India, South Africa, Singapore, USA, Hong Kong, The Netherlands and the UK, representing Amey, Aurecon, Arup, Atkins, Interserve, WSP, Vincii, Fluor and Bechtel (to name but a few), MERIT 2016 will truly be an international affair.
Registration is ongoing and available until the game starts on 24 February 2016, with the game culminating in the grand final at Loughborough University on 12 and 13 May 2016.
So, for your chance to win the prestigious MERIT 2016 Champion's Silver Salver and cash prize of £2,500 presented by ICE President Sir John Armitt, register now.
