An Exciting Learning Experience.

MEGA Learning business simulations provide an exciting business environment in which learning takes place experientially, through trial and error, as you seek to lead your company in a very dynamic business situation. These simulations are run during seminars of one to three days face-to-face, or during a period of six to twelve weeks remotely. Group size varies from 12 to 1000 or more participants.

The learning environment consists of professionals grouped into competing teams piloting a company. Each strategy is implemented through decisions, with each decision having its own learning purpose. Results are instantly available, allowing each team to compare and evaluate its performance and to prepare for the next round. The pace is fast, but so is the level of excitement and learning.
