BUSI 60070 Business Simulation

1.5 credit hours. This course helps students integrate concepts from the different business disciplines by involving them in a complex computer simulation of realistic business situations. Teams of students are required to make business decisions involving a diverse set of business functions and activities over a series of rounds in which conditions change. Through successive phases of the simulation, students must respond to the actions of competing company teams represented by their classmates and are exposed to the consequences of their previous decisions. The course, which is taught at the end of the required core courses, requires students to draw on the material from those courses in making their decisions. Student performance in the simulation is reflected in a balance scorecard of multiple metrics. At the end of the simulation, students present their rationales for their decisions.
