Why business simulations?
Here are the main reasons for why you should use business simulations
Experiential learning - put theory into practice
Participants achieve the learning goals by putting business theory into practice, gaining valuable skills ready for the workplace.
Realistic and risk-free environment
As in a flight simulation, learners can imitate reality and practice specific skills without any risk. Whether it's interpreting financial statements, making budgets, making complex decisions or analyzing a situation, you can practice it and fail safely.
Participants see the big picture as decisions made in the simulation affect all aspects of their business, allowing them to connect the dots and take a holistic approach to decision making and problem solving.
Higher level learning process
By using an experiential learning cycle framework we enable a higher level learning process. First off the learner would have an experience running a business. Secondly, they would need to review and analyze this experience. Thirdly, they would learn from their assessment, and use that learning experience to try out what they learn by continuing their experience.
Knowledge retention and established learning science
To be able to enable a higher level of knowledge retention, a learner would need an elevated level of learning activities. Business simulations can do exactly this as learners can apply what they have learned, and in the end evaluate and create within the simulation. This goes back to the learning model depicted in Bloom’s Taxonomy.
Soft skills development and collaborative learning
The users develop soft skills when working in the simulations, as it requires teamwork, time management, leadership, communication and problem solving skills. The teamwork leads to collaborative learning that enables a universal understanding of the topic. Simulations naturally spark discussions amongst learners, and give them a common experience of the concept.
Business simulations are both social and interactive as participants experience the responsibility of running their own business. Paired with gamification elements like competition and missions, simulations are powerful tools that make the learner want to participate and learn.
Business simulations can be delivered in a live classroom, a virtual one, as an e-learning module, a business challenge, or in a hybrid learning environment. We work with schools and companies that are using our simulations virtually, across several time zones at their preferred times.
Who can use business simulations?
Business simulation games are being used by schools and universities, businesses and corporations, and individual learners. Essentially, by those who want or need to learn more about how to run a business.
Hubro’s business simulations can be modified to fit the level of complexity you need. You can add various exercises and functionalities to make sure participants are challenged and get the most learning out of the business simulation.

How to get started with business simulations
It’s simple to get started with Hubro business simulations. As an educator or corporate trainer, all you need to do is to select a simulation of your choice, enroll your participants and run the simulation.
Our off-the-shelf business simulations require minimal set-up as you do not need in-depth training to understand the platform. It is created to be as easy as possible for you to successfully run a business simulation focusing on the learning outcomes, rather than the technicalities.
The simulation can be delivered both as an online activity and in a classroom. Your participants can play in groups or by themselves as a synchronous classroom competition or as a self-paced practice at home.
