SIMBA FOR BUSINESS EDUCATION
So far SIMBA is been utilized in Business
Schools and training programs in which business
administration is either a core or complementary
content. In these contexts SIMBA has played two
alternative roles. On the one hand as an integrating
activity for the participants -- a “neutral” busi-
ness environment in which they interact, get to
know each other, and play different professional
roles-- and, on the other, to relate concepts and
put into practice the knowledge and techniques
provided in other subjects.
But there are many other benefits derived from
using simulators in business education. Some of
them are related to technical learning objectives,
while others deal with the development of ca-
pacities and competencies highly appreciated in
The evolution of information technology and
communications, and the new demands of higher
education models (adaptation to different user
profiles, distance learning, etc.) justify the de-
velopment of new training tools, as is the case
of SIMBA.
Focusing more specifically on the pedagogi-
cal advantages of Business Simulators, we must
highlight that the main feature of this methodology
is “immersion learning“. This means that students
use techniques and concepts acquired during their
training, and requires them to analyze, take deci-
sions and evaluate results, thus acquiring practical
experience and strengthened knowledge.
