In efforts to bring MonsoonSIM to more learners across the globe, the MonsoonSIM team has traveled to Brunei to meet passionate educators in the country about introducing experiential learning to their students and as part as their curriculum. 

First stop was at Politeknik Brunei, the country's only polytechnic in the country and a reputable education establishment consented by His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam. The session was attended by 15 lecturers, to familiarise them with the MonsoonSIM platform and how it can benefit the learning of over 2,000 students in its business school. We were able to meet the Director of School, Mr. Denis Ho; Mr. Ian Wall, Head of the Business School, and Mr. Bahrin, Education Officer, to discuss the future potential of MonsoonSIM in the school.

Next, the MonsoonSIM team headed to IBTE School of Business where the school is expected to expand to over 1,000 students in two years. 50 Semester 3 students from the school of business has participated in an introductory workshop to the MonsoonSIM business simulation game. The participants are students undertaking a 2-years business course after "O"Levels, and MonsoonSIM is seen as a good fit for them to expose to the Business world, as reviewed by Mr. Haji Mohammad Sofian Bin Haji Lamit, Operations Manager of the School of Business. As part of a positive outcome to the session, MonsoonSIM has been proposed to be part of the IBTE School of Business curriculum in 2020.

Lastly, the workshop was extended to the Cosmopolitan College of Commerce and Technology, one of the leading private institutions in Brunei with a fast expansion of students. After the introductory workshop with 20 lecturers and 5 lecturers, the Senior Director of Academic Affairs has reacted positively to adopting MonsoonSIM and will bring this to management for approval in the next year.
