ESCP Europe’s serious game about intercultural management has been nominated for the German government's awards.
"Moving tomorrow – An Intercultural Journey” was developed by Berlin campus Professor Marion Festing with PhD candidate Tobias Schumacher, and is one of the three serious games running for a prize of 40,000 euros which will be awarded on 9 April during a high-level ceremony in Berlin.
The Deutscher Computerspielpreis (German Computer Games Awards) are the highest nomination in Germany, and the jury of 40 experts met in the German Chancellery twice for the first time. The reason for the move is that the prizes will be officially awarded this year by the Federal Government Commissioner for Digitisation (Dorothee Bär). “My doctoral student and myself are very proud of this nomination,” commented Marion Festing, who's also the scientific director of ESCP Europe’s Renault Chair of Intercultural Management.
As a reminder, you can read and watch (below) a presentation of the game.
"Moving Tomorrow - A Cultural Journey" is so successful at teaching intercultural skills, it has been expanded to new programmes and further developed with the help of Renault.
In addition, ESCP Europe is currently working on a licensed version of the game in order to offer it to a wider audience.
