Exploring the Dynamics of Our Engaging Management Simulations

Interpretive’s management simulations are designed to provide students with a realistic and engaging learning experience.
The simulations start with a case study that sets the scene for a particular business scenario, using familiar products to help students relate to the situation. Throughout the simulation, students make a series of decisions for each period, and both instructors and students can track their progress through comparative reports. All necessary information is available within the simulation, giving students the tools they need to develop and execute successful plans.
Instructors and students consistently report that using simulations greatly complements the objectives of their course and provides real experience with management concepts!

How is Airline different from StratSimManagement?

Both are strategic management simulations. Airline is our intermediate strategy simulation while StratSimManagement is our most advanced strategy simulation. In Airline, your students will take over a fledgling airline and get to choose between a discount, normal, or luxury strategy going forward. In StratSimManagement, students will take over an automobile company and they’ll get to decide which direction to go.

What is the difference between BizCafe and Entrepreneur?

BizCafe covers the first 13 weeks of a business, while Entrepreneur covers 3 years. Each suits different classes’ needs: BizCafe (Business Essentials) and Entrepreneur (Retail Entrepreneurship). Entrepreneur focuses more on start-up decisions and inventory management than BizCafe does, but BizCafe offers the general overview needed for intro to business students.
