“Oxford’s MSc in Major Programme Management has included one of the Prendo simulations every year since the very first cohort in 2009. Participants always find the simulations to be thought-provoking and insightful about one of the central themes: stakeholder management in complex environments.”

I’ve been using Kerovka in the MBA programs at Kellogg for four years now, including a class with 70 students in virtual teams scattered about the globe. I highly recommend it for any class that aims to seriously equip professionals with cutting-edge management skills.
