Business games or business simulations are tools that pursue to improve the teaching/learning methodology in the academic or corporate areas. The origin of the business simulation comes from forecasting and demand economic models. Over the years, the organization' internal aspects were incorporated into the management simulators available in the market.
A business simulation or serious game can be understood as a sequential decision-making tool using a pre-established model in which participants assume the role of managing a business.
The playful and competitive characteristics brought by the business game makes its application a differential in executive training or even in undergraduate and postgraduate courses. The ability to make decisions and analyze the effects they generate makes the simulation interesting, vibrant, interactive and challenging.
The simulations can be integrated to corporate universities or even be adopted by online learning and mobile learning also.
The OGG Comex simulator assists teachers to approximate the international business management reality to academics and interested in knowing the complexity of decision making inherent to this type of companies. The OGG was able to translate the foreign trade challenges with high competence. The simulation is fully adaptable to the academic reality.
OGG's business simulation tools enable the integration of various theoretical elements with business practice, allowing the student to apply their knowledge in a competitive environment. I also highlight the ability to use the tools developed by the OGG at different levels of education, such as technical courses, bachelors and specializations.
We had the opportunity to use the OGG Business Simulation training by our D2MG partners, in a BSC executive training course. The simulation was tremendous and engaged the participants, making the learning a straightforward process and facilitating the content' absorption.
