Storyline

All of our marketing and business simulations share a similar storyline. Your students start a new company or a marketing division that enters the microcomputer business. They serve as the company’s or division's executive team. They analyze market research data, form an overall business strategy and then make a set of strategic and tactical decisions with the goal to become profitable and to be the best competitor in the industry. The market they serve is competitive and fast-paced, the customers are demanding and the competition is working hard to increase their market share.

What differs in each business simulation is the level of detail and decision complexity in the various functional areas of business.

Play options

All of our simulations are available in the "play against peers" option. Whether your students play the simulation individually or as part of a team, this setup allows them to compete against other classmates.

A few of our simulations also offer the "play against computer-generated competitors" option. In this setup, each student or team will compete against the same set of computer-generated firms, rather than against their peers. This set up works particularly well for larger classes. The "compete against computer" option is available only for introductory simulations and a few intermediate-level simulations.
