This category is sponsored by: Cesim Business Simulations

Cesim is the world’s leading provider of multilingual, multidisciplinary business simulations that help educators improve student engagement and employability. Our simulations put responsible management into action as an integrated part of business strategy and reward long-term value creation. Schools in more than 40 countries are already improving their learner success with Cesim.

Cesim was born 25 years ago from the realization that business and management was learned in silos. Learners seldom got to experience competitive dynamics, the interactions between different functions, or what it means to cope with uncertainty. The theoretical foundation of the business simulation methodology is experiential learning, and our mission is to make this available and affordable to the widest possible audience with relevant content.
