What is this business simulation about?

Develop financially sound healthcare systems to best serve your community

Hospital management is multi-faceted: on the one hand, communities rely on a timely, quality provision of services, while on the other hand, employees expect working conditions in which they can grow and thrive. And as an organization, you also need to think of profitability, in order to improve and to best cater to the expectations mentioned above.

In this simulation co-developed with the NYU Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, players practice working in teams, thinking strategically, drawing on evidence, and making trade-offs under time pressure and constraints.

They learn to build financially sound and
sustainable strategies for their healthcare institution that support their human capital and allow them to best serve the community.
