We decided to use BizCafe as a project that we believed would provide the students the opportunity to work in cross-cultural teams and also give them some practical business experience. BizCafe didn't disappoint….The BizCafe game was great because it was very easy to administer and provided a great way to deliver the key concepts of Introduction to Business in a very practical manner.
I have found the Interpretive Simulation experience to be a catalyst for team members to interact with one another in and out of class. I also believe it has contributed to their social development, which is critical for freshmen, most of whom are on their own for the first time.
This experience, my first, with BizCafe was fantastic and I appreciate all of the support and the quality of your product.
This is my second semester using this simulation and I have only had positive responses from the students. As a teacher I use it as an emphasis when teaching. Anytime I need help I get a very quick response.
The simulation is excellent and is one way I’ve found to pull the importance of cross-functionality in business into every decision. It definitely helps students have a better understanding.
