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!
Discover Why Educators Worldwide Choose Our Management Simulations
Students overwhelmingly like this simulation. Their enthusiasm was so strong, that this year, I decided to increase the simulation period from six weeks to eight weeks. The support from Interpretive is outstanding. This simulation is one of the most useful tools I have available to me as an instructor.
I have seen the difference in my students work as a result of their experience with the simulations and it helps prepare them to manage and balance multiple variables in a real business. The support that Interpretive Simulations provides is excellent as well; and recommend them highly.
Students comment on strategic airline simulation as one of the best aspects of learning as this helps them in gaining hands-on experience in applying and evaluating strategic decisions. The support services from interpretive are phenomenal as each of our queries stands solved the very next day.
Students love simulations and generally become rather competitive, which enhances everyone’s learning of the materials we cover in class. Additionally, these simulations provide a wonderful counterpoint to students’ exploration of nascent business ideas, which tends to be quite conceptual. Customer support is also very helpful and responsive.
I find StratSim provides an excellent amount of realism and really pushes students to integrate what they know about various functional areas. Interpretive provides exceptional service and support for Instructors and Students alike.

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.
