Learning is best absorbed by doing, which is why you’ll take part in simulations throughout your year. Each simulation is designed with an experiential approach, pushing you out of your comfort zone and taking you beyond theory and facts so that you can practice the real application of what you’ve learned.
The simulations were like what a flight simulator must be to a pilot—they were innovative training environments where we could test future business decisions we might have to make.

Throughout the year, you’ll experience an array of simulation techniques. Some will appear straightforward—role-plays or hands-on team challenges. Others will be more complex—computer-based simulations, for example, placing you in the driver’s seat of a company while competing against other classmates in a virtual marketplace over several days. In these computer-based simulations, your team will make dozens of critical decisions while coping with the shifting economic and political realities of your virtual business world. In the end, you’ll connect the success or failure of your company back to the business decisions you’ve made.
