The purpose of this article is to present the experience gained from inclusion of a simulation game in the distance learning model of the “Strategic Management” course given by the Spanish National Distance Education University (UNED). We also aim to determine the learning methodology that, from the students’ point of view, is considered to be the best. For this purpose, the article presents the results of a survey in which the students are asked to judge whether different teaching methods develop the skills that, according to Rodriguez Carrasco (1975), a person preparing for a management post should have.
