Cesim Simulations used in Higher Education

"Simulations are a great way to teach students to make decisions with ambiguity, because they've taken all kinds of courses over the years, they've been tested, sometimes with cases, sometimes using regular tests; but this allows them to use the full range and make decisions."
John Kraft, Susan Cameron Chair of International Business, Warrington College of Business, University of Florida / Visiting faculty, Aalto Mikkeli

"Up until now, students have had an education where we've been cutting all the different business functions into pieces, and for a lot of them this is the first time that they get a chance to see how everything fits together and see some of those interactions that are pretty difficult to capture in a Power Point slide."
Kevin McIntire, Senior Lecturer, Metropolia University of Applied Sciences / Visiting faculty, Aalto Mikkeli

"What we'd like students to take away is that they need to integrate information from many different sources when they're making decisions. Regular subject-based courses are narrower and they may focus on the textbook. But here they're trying to pull together rather uncertain information from different sources and somehow still make a decision as best as they can."
Joan Lofgren, Director of the BScBA Programme, Aalto Mikkeli

What our customers say

We needed a simulation that would be relatively easy to get to grips with but with very satisfying and "realistic" levels of complexity and challenge. Cesim Global Challenge fit the bill very well for our Executive MBA students.

In my experience, students often complain about having to do team-based assignments but with Cesim Marketing the feedback from the students was very positive. Almost every student listed team work as a valuable feature of the simulation, and practical application of theory and the competitive aspect were highly appreciated, too.

All the graduates came back with the comment I expected, which is that banking and actually running a bank is an incredibly complex business! It’s not quite as simple as ‘pull this lever and this happens’

What participants say about Cesim simulations

Mikola S.
Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences

"I have rarely been so motivated by a school project. This is one of the few times in my life that I have been so inspired, so motivated on a professional school project. I am even sad that it is finished, I would have liked to enjoy another week! Even others in my class were fully invested in the project, everyone loved it."

Simon T.
Maestris Sup

"The simulation gives a really good overview of the various products offered by a bankthe different departments such as marketing, finance, HR and so on. And because it’s all done in a fun way it's something you really remember. It gave us a really good foundation, and because it was fun we really engaged with it."
