Case Studies and 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.
LeBow undergraduate students are exposed to simulations beginning their first year, when they have the opportunity to manage many aspects of a simulated manufacturing business. While managing the marketing, production, finance and operations aspect of their simulation business, students experience the ebbs and flows of business, while learning in a vibrant, fast-paced setting.
The lessons students gain from simulations drive them to make quick, yet insightful, business decisions and to develop teamwork skills. Many top corporations use business simulations as part of their training programs for their top employees; our students can gain a competitive advantage in the recruiting season by telling stories about their experience in the classroom
