Capsim Foundation


Basic Building Blocks of Business

Business and the markets in which they operate constantly evolve. But whether you manufacture the latest wearable electronics or sell tickets to upcoming events, the essentials building blocks of business – Marketing, finance and operations management – remain the same.

Through Foundation, students get the chance to develop a holistic understanding of basic business principles from the very beginning in an engaging learning experience. Each business discipline has its broad body of knowledge and can be mastered in theory, but experience how business works in practice can be the ideal foundation for deep and ongoing learning.

What is Foundation?

Introduce the basics of business and demonstrate how to use key financial reports to make informed decisions through a business simulation. Foundation® allows students to take over a simulated company distributing one product in two diverging markets with different sizes and growth rates. The interactive interface provides students with experience in building a profitable, sustainable business.

By running a whole business, students not only get a practical introduction to individual disciplines, but develop a realistic context as the basis for a more complete understanding.

Key concepts include making essential decisions in finance, exploring the cause-and-effect relationships between functional areas, determining how to satisfy customer demands, and conducting competitive analysis. Foundation is ideal for introduction to business, accounting, management, and marketing courses for business and non-business majors. It has the flexibility to be used in the classroom, online or both depending on your course structure.
