Academic Solutions

Browse below to learn how business simulation gaming can help your institution to capture the attention and engagement of students. Our innovative methodology is designed to help instructors, professors, and students experience current day; theoretical business concepts applied within a simulated real world business scenario…much as a pilot learns to fly by using a flight simulator! OGG Business Simulations make both the transmission and reception of knowledge more dynamic.

Uses & Applications

Uses & Applications

The use of gamification to fortify educational objectives is on the rise in both corporate and academic sectors. Business simulations infused with classic business educational concepts reinforces learning and provides an excellent platform on which to evaluate student's retention of key principles and practices. Students are able to solve problems on a "live set". The impact of decisions taken is reflected in outcomes, some positive, others not so. The simulation provides students with invaluable insights. This why OGG can help your institution!

The simulations developed by OGG are powerful academic tools that will facilitate participant learning along with the acquisition of both hard and soft skills. Our "games" incorporate interdisciplinary concepts and theories that come alive via the "gamified" platform, such that they are more readily embraced and understood.

Instructor & Student Benefits

There are many benefits associated with using business simulations or business games within a curriculum. Professors and students alike attest to the following Top Ten Benefits.

Professors & Institutions
  • Studies have shown that this methodology is an excellent complement to conventional lecture-based learning. The interactive nature of simulation attracts and holds participant attention by bringing the lectures to life!
  • Games present and test participant understanding of business concepts simultaneously;
  • Simulation business cases and decision variables are fully customizable and may be modified in accordance with course subject matter and key learning objectives;
  • Simulation business cases and decision variables are fully customizable and may be modified in accordance with course subject matter and key learning objectives;
  • Business simulations facilitate interdisciplinary learning;
  • Abstract theoretical concepts may be integrated and come alive within any given simulation;
  • Simulations include a variety of analytical tools, and professors can easily generate supporting case reports;
  • Adaptable for different programs within the academic curriculum;
  • Business games promote development of teamworking skills;
  • Low acquisition & implementation cost.
