Secret of success

As early as 1971 MARGA was developed as the first German business simulation and ever since competitions have taken place.

What is special about business simulations as a method of further education?

A business simulation is used to simulate situations and processes respectively, which need to be planned beforehand. Simulating these events provides you with a deeper understanding plus the necessary skills to assess the situation correctly. The exceptional advantage of the business simulation is the fact that the participant becomes the decision-maker. As if in time-lapse mode, the participant experiences the complexity of the situation and more importantly, the upcoming possibilities to influence the situation. As a consequence, the participant's own role and options with the regarding consequences shift into focus.

Business simulations represent multiple learning styles, which will become more and more relevant in the future: individual, experimental, self-directed and proactive learning.
At the same time, they address social skills which are becoming more important like leadership skills, planning skills, entrepreneurial thinking and acting, risk management and systematically safeguarding entrepreneurial decisions.
