The Surrey Business School works with schools and colleges to raise young people’s aspirations to continue onto Higher Education, and to inspire them about our subjects. This work includes taster events, school visits, business simulations and exhibiting at skills festivals.
Check out our new video to see the activities we are currently offering.
SimVenture is an award winning business simulation, which fast-tracks business and entrepreneurship skills and understanding. Used in a competition setting, students compete against each other to start up their own company, using the prompts and tips provided to make the most profit within the allotted time. This simulation complements the Business Studies curriculum very well, incorporating marketing, sales, finance and operations elements.
We are offering this simulation to be run either on campus here, or in-school, at no cost to yourself, and is suitable for GCSE, AS and A level students.
