Kaplan Business Challenge

Commercial leadership in action

The Kaplan Business Challenge is a business simulation that brings home the reality of everyone’s involvement in the success of their business.

Acting as the newly appointed board of directors of a struggling company, and in direct competition with each other, teams will develop their strategies, create innovative solutions and implement them as they explore the keys to commercial success.

Learning by doing
When it comes to understanding how to run a business, appreciating the financial consequences of the decisions that you make and using financial data to optimise return, the best way to learn is by doing. The simulation provides a safe learning environment where mistakes are not only permitted but are a powerful part of the learning process.

A flexible simulation
The simulation is highly flexible and can be used for a variety of audiences and levels of management. We also offer simulations for different business sectors and the simulation can be used to develop both technical skills and behavioural confidence. Precise learning objectives will be tailored to your specific requirements.
