favicon Our Case Studies - Business Simulations

PARTNERING WITH HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS

  • Over 300 Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) worldwide
  • 45 in the UK and Ireland
  • 19 triple accredited Business Schools 
Our work with these HEIs is a partnership. We understand the contexts in which these institutions operate in and what we can offer to support their pedagogical approach.
 
We've been working with many of these academic partners for several years (some nearly a decade!). During this time we have built up a number of case study examples of how our digital learning products have been implemented at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Please see our selection of case studies below.
