Linking with business

Use our simulation game to engage with local business. Why not invite the employees of a local firm of accountants or stockbrokers, or managing directors from several firms, to play our games alongside you? It is a great way for your students to network with local companies.

Links with local businesses will give students the chance to apply their knowledge and develop their skills through one to one contact time in college and work placements.
