IMC FDP Workshop on 'Teaching with Simulations' is being conducted by Harvard Business Publishing India and SPJIMR as part of 8th Indian Management Conclave 2017. As the case-teaching pedagogy has taken deeper roots in the country, B-schools are now beginning to explore additional methods of teaching to increase student engagement and concept retention viz. E-Learning, Blended Learning & Flipped Classroom. “Simulations” usage has increased substantially in India in last few years with Bschools using both Long (Markstrat) & Short Sims (HBP).

Harvard Business School Publishing partnered with SPJIMR, Mumbai in 2016 to conceptualize, design & deliver a series of workshops for B-school faculty in India. Taking this forward, IMC Faculty Workshop 2017 is being conducted by SPJIMR in partnership with Harvard Business Publishing to offer them an insight into simulations in general and opportunity to experience a mini-simulation as a student/participant. Workshop facilitator is Dr Rajiv Agarwal, Head of Case Centre and Simulations Development at SPJIMRMumbai.
