The Capstone Business Simulation was launched into academic programs in the 1990’s at the MBA level. As business schools saw firsthand the benefits of using simulations to teach the complexities of business, Capstone expanded into senior undergraduate programs, and today is used in capstone courses worldwide.
Academics and professors also choose Capstone to enhance the learning experience in advanced strategy, entrepreneurship, marketing, operations management, and finance courses. It is also used extensively in executive education programs.
Capstone is flexible enough to be incorporated into a range of syllabi and class configurations. Whether on campus or via distance learning, the class set up is simple and the learning experience scalable from small tutorial groups to thousands of students. The ability for instructors to increase the level of difficulty and challenge makes Capstone a highly effective teaching tool for business courses at all levels.
Online and telephone training and support is available to all Capstone instructors at no cost. Each instructor has a personal Curriculum Specialist to help them set up and oversee the simulation throughout the semester.
Students give their simulation units consistently high evaluations because the learning is interactive, and both emotionally and educationally rich. The competitive nature of the simulation deepens the learning and student engagement.
Professors are able to focus on their curriculum because students who need technical support or have questions about the simulation software can access the online, telephone and email support Capsim provides seven days a week.Experience a Capsim Business Simulation

From next fall until the foreseeable future, I plan on using Capstone in all my strategy classes at Skidmore. The students and I both had a great learning experience with it. I should pay you guys for helping me get off-the-chart teaching ratings! …My students and I really enjoy Capstone as a learning tool.
We loved it. The student feedback was superb. Some saw Capstone as the highlight of the program…
