ISB Business Simulation Competition

Simulation and Gaming at ISB

Simulations often immerse students in complex business environments and force them to make challenging decisions so that they are able to reflect and witness the impact of their decisions. Involvement to such an extent provides students with the power to explore, experiment and experience the cause and effect nature of concrete decision making.
The Indian School of Business has constantly endeavoured to facilitate classroom teaching with real-world experience and achieve excellence through practical application of knowledge. One of the important ways that this is being done is through the development of simulations that enrich the understanding of real-life management challenges at every level.
