Tell me and I forget. Show me and I remember. Let me do and I will understand‘

From my point of view, this quotation which is attributed to the Chinese philosopher Confucius, expresses best what characterizes the MARGA business simulation and what distinguishes it from other educational training programmes. The possibility to actively learn from an ’operating’ even if simulated company, is the best way to imprint the newly acquired knowledge to the participants’ memory.
