Bringing Management Lessons to Life with Investment Simulations
We will explore how investment simulations can bring management lessons to life by turning otherwise inexperienced undergraduate students into virtual business owners. We will open by discussing how having students following publicly-traded companies facilitates the connection of course content to real situations. Then, we will discuss how incorporating investment simulations in management courses motivates students to follow such news without overburdening them. Finally, we will review types of simulations implemented and walk through the set-up process.
