Experiential learning

With us, you will learn through doing. Forget traditional learning methods. We will take you far beyond the classroom into our world-class simulation facilities where we uniquely blend the disciplines of science and technology, design and performing arts to encourage the results-focused approach of business.

This is one part of experiential learning: the doing. Experiential learning also means learning through reflection. We encourage this reflection and facilitate deep, engaging analysis of your experience and performance in the simulation facilities. This will develop your knowledge, understanding and competency.
