Students usually have to wait until their first job to get hands-on training, which is a costly way to practice and learn.
StratX Simulations brings the business world straight to your participants and provide them with the most realistic proving ground ever designed. Our simulations mirror the competitive landscape to the last detail, from actual market conditions to changing market forces. Students make decisions and see their results and consequences at once. Nothing else translates ideas into results as quickly or accurately.
Undergraduates, Masters and MBA participants, there is a marketing or business simulation for you.
Have a chance to learn from successes and failures in a risk-free environment.
The corporate world doesn’t forgive mistakes while professionals learn the most when they are given a chance to practice skills. That is exactly why every aspect of StratX simulations is tailored to the challenges professionals face every day. The only difference is that no budgets or careers are on the line.
Our simulations can be adjusted to your needs and we offer a variety of course design options. They require a strong emphasis on teamwork, which helps participants learn from each other, and create far more motivation.
