Flight Now Boarding for CapsimInbox: Financial Management

This November, you can give your students the chance to put their financial skills to the test with CapsimInbox: Financial Management. 

Dr. David McCalman, Assistant Professor of Management at the University of Central Arkansas, considers himself a traditionalist. “I always use a textbook. I’m not a non-textbook, brave-new-world kind of professor,” he said with a chuckle. “I teach with traditional methods as well, but I certainly am always looking forward to supplements that can help.”

And one of those supplements, he realized, was the simulation-based learning experiences he built with the CapsimInbox Authoring Platform.

The Role Participants Play

In the simulation, participants experience a simulated day in the life of a Financial Consultant at a firm that specializes in asset valuation and acquisitions. Learners are tasked with managing one of the firm’s largest clients, during which they will analyze key financial statements, conduct valuations, and evaluate profitability to provide key strategic solutions regarding potential acquisitions.

The simulation incorporates basic financial concepts and terminology, such as cash flows, debt structures, valuation, dividends, and profitability.


The Skills Assessed 

By the end of the simulation, participants can expect to have a greater understanding of the following skills: 

  • Valuation 
  • Time Value of Money 
  • Capital Budgeting
  • International Finance
  • Capital Structure 
  • Long-term Finance 
  • Working Capital Management
