About Bocconi University:

Bocconi University, located in Milan, is a leading Educational institution offering degrees in economics, finance, law, and management, renowned globally for its MBA programs.

Challenge

Bocconi was aware of the numerous benefits of using simulation tools for teaching but lacked an effective tool to illustrate supply chain concepts. They needed a game that could be utilized as a contest across various departments, from Management and Technology to MBA programs.

Seeking a Scalable Solution

Bocconi's requirements for a Supply Chain simulation game included:

  • An Immersive tool that simulate supply chain dynamics and challenges in real-world

  • A scalable tool capable of hosting simultaneous multi-sessions with over 500 students across various campuses and departments in Italy.

  • Quick and easy setup.

  • Automated creation of introductory and debriefing slides, charts, stats, and graphs.

  • Contest features such as comparative analysis graphs and the ability to select a winner.

  • Effective post-game debriefing with automated graphs, PDFs, and tools.

After thorough research, they chose the Zensimu Beer Game solution, which met all their criteria.

"As a teacher, the app gives me several tools to reach learning goals and the experience for students is really great!"
