International Business Simulation
Managing The Future
Using the Thinking Planning Implement / Executing Philosophy (TPI/E™)
The purpose of the simulation is to provide your students with a hands-on experience of the topics being discussed in a typical international business and business strategy class using experiential learning technologies. The simulation reinforces the aspects of international business and strategic management. Functional operations include product design, marketing, human resources, and finance. The 4P's, internal operations, HR, cash flow, Investment decisions, product design, market value proposition, effectiveness of different advertising mechanisms, short term strategic planning, competitive analysis and several other concepts all emulated in an easy-to-use intuitive system. Global parameters such as currency exchange, purchasing power parity, the impact of culture, tariffs, sales quotas, repatriation of funds and others are embedded in the simulation. As a manager in a multinational corporation, your students will take responsibility for a department and proceed to make the appropriate decisions to ensure corporate success. The simulation also emphasizes teamwork and responsibility which leads to accountability and the development of a leadership persona.
Bringing decades of simulation modelling, firsthand experiences in international business and managing corporations plus over 20 years of academic practice SIMU-EX has created an excellent supplement to your course that will provide students with an experiential learning experience, using gamification, to reinforce your course content.
To facilitate the adoption of the simulation into your class, the following videos familiarize you with the software and provide insight into succeeding with the simulation. You as Faculty can use the videos to understand the yearly process of the simulation as well as how to customize the simulation attributes to create a vertical industry.
Thank you in advance for your consideration.
