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.
More to Teach, Easier to 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.
More to Learn, Easier to 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.

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.

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.

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.
