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.
NewShoes simulation allowed me to introduce something extraordinarily valuable to the classroom, experiential learning. Students end the course with a real appreciation of a well-developed marketing plan, the value of marketing research, the importance of consistency, and real life challenges business executives encounter every day.
Your team has the best customer service that I've ever seen for an academic product!
I have used PharmaSim in MBA classes for several years and found it a great method for enhanced and enriched learning. This is the first time using it with Undergrads and it turned out so well that I regret not using it sooner.
You guys in Interpretive's customer support team provide the fastest turnaround on customer requests on this (and probably any other) planet!
I just wanted to say that your company's support is the quickest, friendliest and most efficient I've ever encountered. I know that several other faculty here have said the same thing. We sincerely appreciate it!
This experience, my first, with BizCafe was fantastic and I appreciate all of the support and the quality of your product.
As a first time adopter of the simulation I could not be more impressed and delighted to receive this tremendous and timely assistance.
The CountryManager simulation is an adventure in experiential learning. It provides students with all the skills they would need to take a firm and a product suite to Latin America or Asia. It is versatile enough that students can implement a variety of strategies. More abstractly, it provides students with the experience of competing on innovation. They create innovation, introduce it to a new system that reacts to it, and compete with it. The Interpretive staff are like collaborative partners. And even better, you work with the same people over the semesters and years.
This is my second semester using this simulation and I have only had positive responses from the students. As a teacher I use it as an emphasis when teaching. Anytime I need help I get a very quick response.
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.
