Award winning online business simulations used by educators and corporate employers in 55 countries.

Dawn Bell, Instructor, Davenport University

I want your entire team to know that this is the finest simulation we have ever used. Compared to scores that we have tested, adopted, and taught, Marketplace is the Gold Standard. Service is superb. The whole package moves the industry ahead like no other.

John K. Clemens, Professor of Management, Hartwick College

My students were really pleased playing the game. I have been running simulations for students since 1977, and yours is by far the best. Congratulations.

Prof. Jorge Ramon Pedroza, Tecnologico de Monterrey, Mexico

Almost 100% of the comments made on instructor evaluations regarding the marketplace game have been positive and some students have inquired about playing the game solo. I strongly recommend trying the Marketplace game series.

Michael T. Elliott, Associate Prof. of Marketing, University of Missouri - St. Louis

The Marketplace simulation was outstanding. So many wonderful learning experiences. No question l will use the simulation again. It was a very positive experience for everyone and I VERY much appreciate the excellent help all the support staff gave in making it work for a novice like me.

Linda Gerber, University of Texas-Austin

Thank you so much for all your assistance and good natured nurturing. The service you provide builds incredible product loyalty. I would not think of using a different game because of the quality of the game and your invaluable technical support. Thanks again!

Jack Duncan, Professor and University Scholar in Management, University of Alabama at Birmingham

The simulation definitely maximizes student learning. The decisions that the student faces are very realistic and simulate the same kind of decisions faced by marketing managers in organizations. I really like the idea of phasing new material in gradually so it can be assimilated over a period of time, thus avoiding information overload.

Alfred Hawkins, Associate Professor, Marketing, Rockhurst University

My students commented that the simulation was realistic, but also simplified in a way that allowed them to "play" with the concepts in the text. I think that the simulation graphics add to the learning experience. I think this is a key advantage of this simulation.

Kathryn Aten, Professor, University of Oregon

I'd like to thank you for creating such a class for us. I really learned a lot about business. There is no doubt that this has been the best class I've taken in college.

Shawn Devine, student, University of Tennessee

This has been my best and most interesting business class I have taken my entire college career. I have never felt like I did so well in any of my other classes. And I also thought that I would never like a business class until I entered your class and had the opportunity to use Marketplace.

What Educators are Saying about Marketplace

"I just wanted to thank the team at ILS for all the wonderful support you gave me during the running of the simulation. This was our first attempt at incorporating a simulation in our MBA, and Conscious Capitalism proved an excellent capstone experience for the students. Being a first time user, I was nervous about how things would go and I had many, many questions. I just wanted to thank you so much for the exceptional customer support. I will certainly recommend your organisation, and will be back next year with my next group of students!"

Susan K., La Trobe University, Australia

Marketplace business simulations have been used in a variety of schools around the world.

“Thank you and your team for the support given to me and others at Grand Canyon University (GCU) over the years. The simulation has been a highlight of our MBA and undergraduate marketing programs in both our traditional campus and online modalities. Students enjoy the experiential learning process and are very enthusiastic in their feedback about the game. Using the ILS (Marketplace Live) products in our curriculum has been helpful to my career as well, distinguishing my marketing courses in terms of student and instructor feedback. I look forward to continuing to work with your very fine staff - I have never had a problem that they were not able to fully resolve quickly.”
