Every year, close to 2,000 business professors choose to use Capsim’s business simulations in their classroom. To understand why, we surveyed our users and collected the top five reasons.


1. World-Class Support

Customers come first at Capsim. We are strive to constantly delight our users and provide them with the best learning experience possible. Our Customer Relationship Services team is dedicated to training professors and providing unlimited support for each course. Each professor is paired with a Customer Relationship Consultant that will be available to guide them through their class.

2. Flexibility

Every professor has unique teaching styles, learning objectives and areas of focus. Our simulations are flexible enough to adapt to your needs — from a condensed weekend program with an emphasis on finance to a semester long course with a focus on business strategy. Our Customer Relationship Services team will work with you to design a solution that meets your learning objectives.

3. Ease of Use

The more comprehensive a simulation is the more overwhelming it can seem. We want our simulations to be as realistic and in-depth as possible, but without compromising our user’s experience. Our team of front-end designers and developers work hard to create an intuitive experience for both professors and students. We are constantly improving and updating our simulations based on the feedback we receive from our users.

4. Student Engagement

Many professors consider integrating a business simulation because they are in need of a better way to engage their students in the classroom. Our simulations give participants a risk-free environment to apply classroom knowledge to real-life situations — allowing for a more memorable and rewarding learning experience.

5. Integration of Functional Business Areas

One of the most difficult things to teach is ‘The Big Picture’. Using a business simulation teaches students how the different functional areas of a business interact and impact one another. It takes students through a real-world, competitive business environment; requiring them to make decisions in Marketing & Sales, Finance, Production and Research & Development, while weighing their cross-functional impacts on each department.
