The Smartsims Experience
The Best Way to Learn
The foundation of simulation-based learning is that we learn best by doing. Therefore, to truly grasp the impact strategy and management decision-making have on business outcomes, students need real-world experience.
Business Simulation Games bring business terminology and concepts to life. By giving students their own virtual company they become engaged with course content and bridge theory with practice. Professors report learning outcomes such as student engagement, increased motivation, real management skills, workforce readiness and confidence in job interviews. Business simulators enable effective teaching methods such as experiential learning, reflective learning, action learning and the flipped classroom.
