The focus was on practical instruction in macroeconomic contexts. The simulation game “MACRO”, which simulates the essential components of an economy, was conducted. The participants assume the roles of the sectors private households, businesses, state and central bank.

The business game “MACRO” was developed by the Aktionsgemeinschaft Soziale Marktwirtschaft e.V. (http://www.asm-ev.de/index.php) and the Ministry for Culture, Youth and Sport in Baden-Württemberg. Supervisor of the SMEGradSchool Prof. Dr. Nils Goldschmidt is chairman of the board of the Aktionsgemeinschaft.
