About Us

MonsoonSIM is an award-winning business simulation and gamification education platform. This platform has been used in business education since 2013. To date, we have more than 80,000 registered learners and a rapidly growing user base.

Transforming the way you teach

  • Instead of teaching with theory, you allow the learners to conduct self-directed learning --- through simulation and gamification.
  • Instead of creating course content, you simply configure your course to suit your learners.
  • Instead of being a teacher, you are a facilitator and an advisor.

Transforming the way they learn

  • Instead of learning by remembering, learners learn by doing and exploring.
  • Instead of learning by elearning or powerpoint, learners learn by practicing and experimenting.

There are hundreds of fundamental business concepts applicable to any trading, distribution, eCommerce, manufacturing, and service business. The concepts are brilliantly wrapped into a typical business simulation with thirteen business departments. Data live access is also available for analysis and reflection of the learner's business decisions. Educators can decide to teach the basics for example, Accounting with Retail or use MonsoonSIM to teach advanced level concepts such as capital budgeting.

Testimonials

According to student feedback, most prefer the experiential learning mode over traditional lectures as it allows them to understand the complexity in business operations using an interactive approach.

Dr. Ma Nang Laik

Associate Professor, Business Programme

Singapore University of Social Sciences

The intensity of the game, and the digital nature of the game allows them to consider and test the application of their hypotheses or other theories, instead of just absorbing them.

Dr. Leong Y. Jonathan

Head, Event Management Programme

Singapore University of Social Sciences

The potential value to my students is immense. I have never seen a more complete or realistic simulation. The integration of gamification with teams efforts stimulates the kind of thinking and soft skills that could make a difference in inspiring my students.

Dr. Scott Dell, CPA, DBA

Assistant Professor of Accounting

Francis Marion University, USA

The MonsoonSIM is appropriate across a wide range of programs and courses. It has the ability to provide the students with the performance data for them to analyze and use their analytic skills to dertermine appropriate business strategies. I have been looking for a tool that helps demonstrate the integration of ERP systems, and MonsoonSim provides this.

We are extremely happy with student engagement in the simulation and also the holistic understanding of accounting and business process that students have gained. They really enjoyed participating in the simulation and they report how much they have learnt. We found the simulation easy to set-up and run. The platform is extremely robust without any difficulties.

The flow of real-time information across departments integrates ERP process into a single system providing a process of visibility, analytics, and efficiency across every aspects of a business which makes the simulation and training very meaningful

Mr. Donny Siu

Associate Director, Entrepreneurship Center

Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST)

The students were engaged from the start and learned very quickly.
My goal was to immerse the students in the 'world' of a small business owner to experience the need for monitoring key elements of the business and quick informed decision making. The ramifications of each decision played out in front of them providing immediate feedback and the need for more decision making.
My experiential learning goal was achieved. I consider it a big success.
