The first time for the IT Forum to be a platform for the final competition of business management “Growth Point”


The Ugra Cup “Growth Point” is a competition based on an integrated business simulator that simulates the operation of an enterprise amid global competition. The participants are the representatives of the business sphere, students, upper-form pupils, and government employees from all municipalities of the district as part of teams of 3-5 people.

This innovative educational project is part of the Russian national stage of the international championship on strategy and business management Global Management Challenge. In 2019, the large-scale Ugra Cup project on business management “Growth Point”, as well as the IT Forum, will be held for the eleventh time. These events would not be possible without digital technologies.

In the “Growth Point”, the latest innovative educational technologies are applied - a new generation of active learning methods in the form of distance learning. The participating teams receive virtual companies with the same starting indicators for management, develop a strategy and implement it in direct competition with each other in the simulated economics. In each round up to 1.5 years of managing a virtual company are simulated. The winner is determined by the maximum investment attractiveness of the company.

The eleventh International IT Forum with the participation of the BRICS and the SCO countries will become a platform for the final competitions of the 11th season of the Ugra Cup in business management “Growth Point”. On June 11, eight strongest regional teams of the professional league and eight teams of the student league will meet.
