This is Hubro Championship

Hubro Championship is a competition in business skills, but also teamwork and critical thinking - the skills the leaders of tomorrow require. Teams from schools all around the world compete to see who can run the most successful company in Hubro’s simulations. Each team can have up to 3 students.

There are two competitions in parallel, where teams may compete in one or both competitions:

There are five qualifying rounds throughout the year (see schedule below), where the winning team from each round is qualified to the final.

One qualifying round is a simulation of 9 quarters, played over two weeks (one quarter per 24 hours on working days). Each quarter will take a maximum of 25 minutes. The team with the highest equity at the end of the last quarter wins. Each simulation starts on a Monday at midday CET.

Why should you join the Championship?

  1. Curriculum relevant for business and marketing
  2. Engage your students in a global simulation competition
  3. Promote collaboration and teamwork, and work towards a common goal
  4. Experience game based learning for increased learning outcome

New rules in 2020

Schools in more than 20 countries on 5 continents use Hubro’s simulations in their teaching. As a result we have completely changed the rules of the Hubro Championship, and have made it an online competition that schools anywhere in the world can join.

Only one finalist per school

Only one team from each school may qualify for the final. If several teams from the same school win different rounds, then it is the team with the most points that qualifies; the other team must give its place to the next in line.

Tickets belong to the team

If a team that was qualified cannot participate in the final, they forfeit their place. The place is then given to the next on the list from their qualifying round.

Diploma

All participants get a diploma showing their participation in the competition. The finalists get a special diploma stating their place in the competition.

Join the Championship!


The winner of each of the qualification rounds will win a place in the final taking place in March 2021. Any school can sign up student teams to the qualifying rounds. It’s completely free to participate in the competition.

Hubro Business and Hubro Marketing will each have a final. The 5 qualification winners will go head to head, resulting in one Hubro Champion for the Business Simulation, and one for the Marketing Simulation.


Only teachers can sign up through the form - on behalf of the students

You, or any business teacher in your department can sign up teams to represent your school. After that, you’ll get a test simulation so your students can practice before the competition starts. You as the teacher will also be invited to a webinar focused on how you can coach your students to do the best they can in the competition.

Whether or not you have a license is important for attendance

History

Hubro Championship started back in 2017, as an initiative to engage schools working with Hubro across Norway to compete against each other in a grand championship. High Schools from all over Norway qualified, and traveled to Oslo for the finals. In Oslo they competed in a heated final against other High School students for the titles of Hubro Business and Marketing champion.

For the Hubro Championship 2021, we’re going digital. We want to invite high schools from all over the globe to compete against each other for the title of Global Hubro Champion. Could it be your school?

We’ll see you online, for the Hubro Championship 2021!

How does it work?

By attending the championship you will compete in least one qualification round.

The winning team from each qualification round will secure a place in the final. This will result in 5 teams competing in the final for the title as this year's Hubro Champion.

One qualification round will last over two weeks, divided into 9 game periods.

The simulation will be conducted across 9 periods or quarters, where one quarter will last over 24 hours from 12 pm CET every weekday. Over the weekend there will be one quarter from Friday at 12 pm CET until Monday 12 pm CET. The winner will be announced when the last period is finished on the Friday during the second week at 12 pm CET.

If you want to have your students play the simulations before the qualification period, you can get in touch with us here. If you’re uncertain about using it in your classroom, reach out to us or check out one of the teacher interviews we did with one of our users, Pouian. He uses business simulations to improve learning outcomes for his students.

What is a license and how do I get one?

A license is a subscription to our platform that lets you use Hubro unlimitedly with your students and classes for a given amount of students.

Feel free to reach out here to get a license for your students!

How do my students register for the competition?

  1. You will get a sheet from us that you need to fill out and send back.
  2. You will get a link to the game they can attend, that you just need to forward to them!
    What happens then? They will use the link to register their user and automatically be enrolled to the competition or practice free play. One person from each team needs to be a team captain and register a team with a team name so the rest of the team can join that specific team. Watch this tutorial video, and forward it to your students as guidance!

How do my students register on the platform?

You will receive a link from us that you will need to forward to your students. Then they will have to follow this link and register an account with their email. For the competitie qualification round, each team will need to pick a team captain that registers their team with a team name. This makes it easier for the rest of the team to register and join the team they are supposed to join.

What happens if my students don't play one quarter?

If your students miss a quarter, the simulation will progress automatically, and decisions will be generated.

Questions? Any school can sign up student teams to the qualifying rounds. It’s completely free to participate in the competition. Reach out to Kristian to clarify any other question you may have!
