How to complement business simulations to yield better results

Posted by Cesim Team on Tuesday, March 05, 2019

As an educator looking for a boost in student engagement you might be thinking about implementing a business simulation in your course. Consequently you wonder if/how you can utilize your existing materials and integrate those with the simulation to provide a full learning experience for your students.
