Executive Challenge is a multiplayer business simulation designed to develop leadership skills and business acumen.
Participants play specific roles leading simulated companies. Each participant contributes to the success or failure of the business by making decisions and completing tasks as an individual, meaning every participant is actively involved in the process. Engaging the entire team underscores the need for a sound strategy and ensures that every participant understands his or her role in the execution of that strategy.
During the simulation, teams operate in a competitive marketplace. As pressures mount, participants’ true behaviors emerge, providing rich opportunities for experimentation, self-reflection, self-correction, and feedback. The impact of these evaluations is enhanced by debriefs led by experienced facilitators.
Executive Challenge was designed to address real-world leadership issues by letting participants experience real-world challenges. The Executive Challenge experience causes participants to lower their guard, giving individuals the opportunity to examine their own behavior, make observations about team dynamics, and absorb facilitators’ analyses. This environment leads to meaningful change in mindset and behavior.

Fluent in Finance is an online and blended curriculum that teaches financial concepts to non-financial business managers. Business Challenge is a competitive multiplayer business simulation which tests learners’ knowledge of financial concepts and is deployed in conjunction with the Fluent in Finance course.
In Fluent in Finance, users learn financial concepts through tutorials and interactive case studies, giving them the opportunity to solve business problems faced by virtual managers and organizations. These case studies force learners to analyze data, apply financial concepts presented in the tutorials, and recommend optimal business solutions. Interactive elements are also present during the tutorials in order to keep the learner engaged throughout the curriculum.
Business Challenge is an associated multiplayer business simulation in which individual players manipulate marketing and production tools within a virtual company to maximize profit and create a sustainable business model. Players base decisions on their analysis of financial data available for their companies, thereby testing their knowledge of financial concepts and reinforcing key ideas through experiential learning.
