Spoilers are the absolute worst. This we know. Whether it’s the friend who accidentally blurts out the ending of a great book, the film review that diligently covers every twist and turn of the storyline, or the student who shares coursework information with subsequent cohorts, spoilers can annoy and infuriate. What they take from us can never be returned: our honest, unfiltered and unprepared response to a piece of creative work. The theft of our unique, personal journey through what may often also be a shared experience. “There he is, officer. That’s the man who told me the butler did it.”

Team Performance, Cognitive Diversity, and Business Simulation

Posted by Zsuzsa Jakab on Friday, May 15, 2015 | Reading time: 3 min.

As we have covered in previous articles, business simulations are already a fantastic supplementary tool on their own in higher education learning. Today we talked to Associate Professor Anssi Tarkiainen at Lappeenranta University of Technology about how he is taking the use of simulations to the next level. Professor Tarkiainen has been using Cesim Global Challenge for 5 years in a capstone course for the internationally accredited (EPAS accreditation) Master’s in International Marketing Management program offered at the LUT School of Business and Management. Recently, LUT was ranked as the best young university in the Nordic countries by Times Higher Education 100 under 50 rankings.
