Simulation Overview

The Debt Restructuring simulation is an incredibly intense simulation built by experienced corporate financiers. It is profoundly competitive.

It dramatizes why companies must exercise caution with debt and what truly occurs when a company faces financial challenges.

This multiplayer simulation emphasizes critical thinking through analysis, strategy, and deal closure. Participants are assessed based on the results they achieve, with each role having specific objectives in the simulation.
