MET Institute of Management in its constant endeavor to develop business leaders to succeed in the competitive and dynamic business world, adopts teaching pedagogies using tools and technology and exposing students to experiential learning across management courses taught. Innovative teaching pedagogies are learner-centric and interdisciplinary in nature equipping students with the latest knowledge, skills and growth mindset to help thrive in a rapidly changing global economy.
To help facilitate experiential learning and build analytical skills, faculty members use the aid of simulation games along with the traditional lecture delivery. Management simulations are an extension of the case based learning methodology. By simulating real-world business scenarios, students are able to correlate theoretical knowledge to practical situations and develop a deeper understanding of management concepts. These games provide a hands-on experience that foster critical thinking, problem-solving, and decision-making skills in students of management education.
