According to the ‘721’ learning rule, of all the 100% of knowledge and skills acquired, 70%, 20% and 10% are acquired on the job, peers and university courses respectively. The CDIO model, originated from engineering education, offers a new vision and concept to codify the knowledge and skills required in the instruction of business course. As an effort to make the students excel in a real-life simulation contest, the contest-based training program aims to create an effective training syllabus embracing the four key elements, namely, the conceive-design-implement-operate procedure.
