Message by the Founder - Simon Schmidli

According to World Economic Forum, we are facing an upskilling emergency: As jobs are transformed by the technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, we need to reskill more than 1 billion people by 2030. The world of work is changing at an unprecedented speed and people need to learn the skills to thrive in the future. By 2022 active learning, innovation, analytical thinking, creativity, critical thinking and complex problem-solving are growing skills needed to thrive in an ever-changing complex businessworld.

It was news like this, that led me to believe we need to change something and enable students to learn by doing and build new skill-sets. In the past years, I have led numerous workshops for up to 200 students, but if you ask me. the highest impact and learning outcomes were always achieved in small classes with the blended learning approach of using the Business Simulation Game combined with a a live facilitation to guide the students.
