“The mini-MBA course was really a great and helpful experience for me. It got me to think outside of my comfort zone being a technical person myself, who was not really exposed as to how a whole business works. It was also a great opportunity for me to meet, plan, strategize and have healthy arguments with my colleagues from our company coming from different sites and backgrounds, and was personally a rewarding experience for my team as we got the much-coveted prize at the end!”

“We had a team of various professionals coming from different disciplines within our organization to run the [simulated] company. The learning comes from the PriSim Course materials given by a very enthusiastic trainer, from team members, and from competing teams. It was a great learning experience to expand your business-horizon and to get more information in other aspects of the business. Last but not least, the course is given in an enjoyable environment, where theory and team activities alternate.”

“The Prisim Mini-MBA class has better prepared me for the strategic aspects of leadership. Through a combination of excellent seminar-style training and hands-on business simulation, I gained self awareness of my own management style and was given the tools to adapt it. Most useful was learning the ability to clarify issues and cut through a sea of data to find what is most pertinent.”
