Global Strategy Simulation
Corporation simulation offers a hands-on learning technique which allows students to practice and apply what they have learned. Specifically, team business simulations potentially allow for collaborative learning via teammates and interactions with an expert; engaged, time on task; experiencing a true team as opposed to an ordinary work group; preparing college students as they transition from a high-structured environment to a more ambiguous, work situation; and development of interpersonal skills. Students have the opportunities to take on leadership roles and to learn about team processes in an experiential fashion. As an instructor, I can focus on one-on-team and one-on-one coaching; this creates an effective learning environment and a virtuous circle where we share our knowledge and enthusiasm
I have been working with Interpretive simulations for a very long time. From the beginning, my relationship with Interpretive felt more like a partnership than that of a customer. I have always felt that my perspective was welcomed and useful to them. I also came to learn that Interpretive would ensure that, from the technological side, the simulation experience would be a successful component of my undergraduate and MBA classes. I have never been let down by them.
I have found many ways to integrate the Corporation simulation into my lectures. Drawing on my students’ experiences with the game, I am able to convey challenging material about strategic management. The simulation isn’t just an additional feature of my class; it is an integral component of the course. Additionally, students always evaluate the simulation as an important learning tool.
I have found that I am able to reach students with the simulation that I was unable to reach before. The competitive n...
