Which classes is this simulation suitable for?

HRManagement fits very well for classes in Introduction to Human Resources, both at the undergraduate and graduate level. However, it has also been beneficial for courses in Strategic Human Resources. The true strength of HRManagement lies in its quantitative approach to HR, where students’ decisions have tangible financial impacts on their simulated company.

What is the ideal team size for the simulation?

We recommend a team size of 3-4 students for the most enriching simulation experience. Larger teams often face collaboration challenges, while smaller teams might lack the diversity of opinions that sparks valuable discussion and learning.

What is the duration of the simulation?

The HRManagement simulation can extend up to 12 periods, each representing a quarter of a year. On average, students will spend about an hour per decision period.
