How Do Business Simulations Benefit Higher Education?
Benefits for the Institution
High Schools, Polytechnics, and Universities are increasingly pressured to prove that their school curriculum is improving overall student knowledge retention rate and employability. We at Cesim are dedicated to help you to do just that.
We believe that "for successful learning experiences, students need to experience a variety of instructional methods and that direct instruction needs to be accompanied by methods that further student understanding and recognize why what they are learning is useful." - Lalley and Miller (2007)
Business strategy games belong to the realm of 'active learning', which entails all forms of learning where the participant is behaviorally and cognitively active. It complements theoretical education by providing a dynamic, reactive, risk free learning environment for students to engage in.
Cesim business simulation games can be easily integrated into any international business and strategy, marketing, small service business, hospitality, and bank module at undergraduate, graduate and even MBA levels.
