Special Session at AMA on Supply Chain Simulations
If you are at the Summer AMA, be sure to attend the special session on Saturday on supply chain management simulations chaired by Ernie Cadotte, the author of Marketplace.
We continue to experience phenomenal growth. Satisfied students and faculty are driving our demand continually upward.
Marketplace Live News
We continue to make news with Marketplace Live. Our experience has been very encouraging. Faculty and students have found that the new features have made learning more interesting and more memorable.
If you have not seen our introductory video for Marketplace Live, view it here.
We have added Intro to Marketing and Business Basics to our lineup of Live games. As we roll out these new versions, we are also updating the game scenarios so that students will face a fresh set of decisions, minimizing the ability to pass on "advice" to the next class. In addition, we are adding quite a few 3D stories that make learning fun and effective.
The Cadotte-Bruce Textbook
The Cadotte-Bruce textbook is designed to augment the Marketplace simulation. It explains the business principles behind the simulation. It is now available online as an e-book. You can pick and choose the chapters that are best for your simulation. The cost to each student is $1 per chapter. There are no bookstore costs or printing costs.
New International Game with Real-Time Conditions
We have created a new international corporate management game that includes real-time economic conditions. By real-time, we mean that the economic index for each region is tied to the stock market in that region and that the exchange rates reflect the actual rates that exist on the day of processing. Students can try their hand at hedging and speculative investments in foreign currencies as they attempt to deal with current events and market conditions.
