The Effectiveness of a Simulation Exercise for Integrating Problem-Based Learning in Management Education

Philip H. Anderson, Leigh Lawton


Problem-Based Learning (PBL) has gained recognition as a valuable pedagogical approach. This study explored the effectiveness of using a simulation as the PBL “problem†in a strategic planning course. This study demonstrated that a management simulation can be an effective problem for integrating PBL over the duration of a course. Factors that need to be considered when using a simulation exercise as a PBL problem are discussed. Limitations and directions for future research are explored.
