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.

Nevertheless, the Festival has an area which is entirely open to the public: the International Careers Fair. The Fair is a large exhibition area open to both participants and the public alike. It will be divided into two different sections: the education/university area and the work/internship area. It favours the interaction between thousands of students, whether they are looking for study/training/internship/work opportunities, and industry experts.
The International Careers Festival projects are quite complex and articulate, therefore it is important to carry out a pre-event preparation in order to favor an adequate participation.

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
broaden your professional expertise in journalism, translation or interpretation.
It is also a fun and exciting opportunity to meet people from all over the world and to create new interpersonal relationships that can last a lifetime. You will also be able to attend the International Careers Fair free of charge, where you will meet numerous representative of a diverse range of universities, businesses and associations.
I really look forward to meeting the participants of the Rome Press Game 2020 edition and to help you get one step close to achieving your dreams.
