Interpretive’s management simulations start with a case that defines the environment and scenario. Students deal with real world products with which they will be familiar. Throughout the simulation, students will enter a series of decisions for each period, and both instructors and students can monitor their results in comparative reports.
All of our management simulations provide enough decision rounds for students to see the outcomes of their decisions, strategy, and/or plan. Students will have all the information they’ll need within the simulation to make their decisions.

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 using an Interpretive Simulation at both the undergraduate and the graduate level at the University of Connecticut for a number of years. I think every semester the students have walked away with knowledge and practical application of the concepts that will serve them well as they pursue their careers. The vast majority of my students have stated that the simulation made their education more real for them and they learned more about how things worked in the “real” world. In many cases, they did not want the simulation to be over. I like the simulation and all it brings to the educational experience of the students.
As always, thanks for the great support! It’s always great working with everyone at Interpretive!
By using Airline simulation, my students get hands-on experience of making exact strategic decisions they have to make as executives of real-world companies. To win the game they become critical thinkers, not just college students majoring in business. The simulation also provides students a tactful way to fill the gaps of theory and practical experience. Students are given a real-life environment in which they may practice what they learn in the business classes and advance their analytical, planning and evaluating skills.
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.
Airline simulation not only tests critical thinking skills but offers my students team building in a simulated environment that transitions very well into their current or future career positions. Airline simulation allows my students to learn and respect cross functional business disciplines that are part of a university’s business curriculum, such as accounting, marketing, operations and strategic management.
One of the most frequent questions in my intro marketing MBA class was “How can we apply material we are learning in real life?” To answer this question I used business cases, discussed real marketing problems that got coverage in mass media, brought guest speakers from local companies… Still I felt that the question was only partially answered for my students who did not have marketing experience. New Shoes simulation helped me to finally introduce experiential learning element in my class. New Shoes simulation is a good reflection of what marketers do in real life and I am very satisfied to use it in my class.
You have assisted GREATLY! Thank you so much! It has been a while since I did this simulation and although I am a little rusty, I realize why this is such a GREAT PROGRAM! Again, thanks to you and all those GREAT PEOPLE at Interpretive Simulation!
As a first time adopter of the simulation I could not be more impressed and delighted to receive this tremendous and timely assistance.
