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 for creating an interesting and extremely challenging environment for my students. Each semester is a unique experience for me and my strategy students - this is my favorite class!"
Sally Fenton, Professor - Strategic Corporate Management, ELMS College
"I wanted to say again how impressive your simulation game is. I have played such a game twice before and this one is light years ahead of those. No comparison."
Mark McCall, EMBA, University of Tennessee
"Having conducted simulations for the past 10 years and with over 1000 students, I have found that Marketplace provides the most realistic and stimulating learning environment that I know of."
-Greg Gundlach, Sr. Professor of Business, University of Notre Dame
"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."
Melissa Martin, student, Bryant College, Smithfield, RI
“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.”
Kevin Mcclean, Professor, Grand Canyon University
"Almost 100% of the comments made on instructor evaluations regarding the Marketplace business simulations have been positive and some students have inquired about playing the simulation game again. I strongly recommend trying the Marketplace business game series."
Michael T. Elliott, Associate Prof. of Marketing
"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."
