Business Basics

Foundation is ideal for introductory courses in business, finance, management and marketing, as well as courses in business for non-business majors, such as engineering. Foundation is also used in MBA programs and other advanced courses where the simulation element is a limited aspect. Teams are required to create and revise their product line, market their products, manage their production and raise funds to run the company.

Understanding Financial Statements

Participants learn to read and understand financial statements, the cause and effect between each part of the company and balance competing demands in the changing marketplace. Foundation provides a framework for understanding business processes, decision-making and key financial reports. By giving participants a hands-on opportunity to run a company, students learn the building blocks of business.
