the business game
The Business Game is an online, business simulation game in which learners play the role of an entrepreneur starting up a business. Their decisions in-game over the course of three virtual years of trading directly affect their business' success, measured by financial records. Learners tend to play the game multiple times to improve upon previous results, which leads to a deep understanding of the dynamics of business decision making.
Learners choose a product to take to market and sell. Working through five ‘stages’, they are exposed to key business concepts such as pricing, marketing and sales. It allows for the experience and practice of these otherwise abstract concepts, and will generate final reports on the learners’ decisions and performance for reflection and discussion.
The five stages of the game are as follows:
Introduction to the scenario and learning the interface
Review your market research and select your product quality variables
Decide your marketing strategy
Choose your sales strategy and prepare to trade
Complete three years of trading
