Revas Simulations helps (young) people experience and understand business. The game can be used in business education classes to run courses in a practical, engaging and fun way in more than 10 industries. Simulation participants, divided into teams, run virtual companies and make realistic business decisions similar to decisions made daily by real managers. Teams analyze market information to make strategic and operational business decisions. The teams can compare their results and improve their skills on each round.
The simulation is a flexible tool that can be used in various education levels. In higher education, it can be used in courses on business, economics, operational management, financial accounting or business for 'non-business students' courses. It is also fit for secondary schools - courses on management, accounting, entrepreneurship, economics, marketing, and key business competence workshops. In corporate training it can be included to business – managerial skills training or ’experience business’ workshops.
The players need to use the market data in the system to make business decisions and predict outcomes.
On each round, the players can see the results of their decisions and optimize the business they are running.
The simulation includes key business areas such as HR, resourcing, marketing and customer needs.
The simulation can be run using various different industry examples.
