Business Simulations

Business simulations in the college classroom provide an excellent platform for students to bridge the divide between theory and practice and apply the concepts and frameworks of a course to the reality of running a business. These simulations provide students a safe environment to experiment with many facets of business, including decision-making, strategy formation and teamwork. Students transition from knowing what to do to actual application.
