The AdSim Advertising simulation is specifically designed for Advertising courses.

  • Students run the advertising campaign for the Digital Camera division of a large Consumer Electronics Corporation.
  • Each decision period, students will undertake Market Research and analyse Market Data to formulate their own Advertising and Promotion Campaign within a competitive environment, just like Advertising Executives in the real world
  • They will make all the key functional decisions involved in procuring new Sales - through the selection of an Advertising Agency based on their specific media and communication goals, as well as the retention of existing Sales - through Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Warranties and After Sales Support, while keeping to a fixed Advertising Budget
  • Students compete against others in their course in an online multiplayer environment. The competitive element of AdSim makes the simulation so enjoyable for students, while encouraging involvement and learning in a way that no other teaching methodology can
  • AdSim uses a dynamic marketplace so that students must continually analyze the changing market and understand the needs of their customers, therefore reinforcing the importance of planning, implementation and evaluation of strategy.
  • AdSim complements traditional Advertising Texts such as the Arens, Belch & Belch, and Duncan textbooks from McGraw-Hill.

"The simulation was a great learning tool - it helped us to understand concepts quickly in addition to reading the books."
